Re: beavertail forend Hey Tom
Original beavertails came with a through bolt to help the wood stay put and then a reinforced splinter. This looks like the short bottom rib after the forend attaching lump. The reinforced version is much larger with more surface to solder.
With out these two reinforcements the gun can be destroyed by recoil.
