This has bugged me for awhile and is frustrating me today in particular. I came a cross a few Model 71’s at my LGS today and plan to go back for a closer look. To edumacate myself I thought I would search for relevant threads. However when I enter “Model 71” in the search field I’m told that terms with less than three letters are ignored. It would seem common around here to want to search for 2 digit models. I’ve tried searching by all terms and using quotes (which are often used in many search engines to designate a phrase) but no luck. Just a ton of results with the word “model” in them.

I just tried a search for “Model 71” and I experienced exactly what you describe.  The search function is woefully lacking !  I will make some inquiries and see if there is a way we can improve its functional abilities.
