Re: Orphaned Parts Data Base
Serial Number 198011- Splinter Forend, 12 gauge, Field Grade, non-ejector. The forend is on a 12 gauge Wild Fowl Serial Number 198621. It is one of the guns with military markings ordered in 1942. I have always assumed that forends were mis-matched at some point when the guns were broken down for cleaning. The serial numbers of both the gun and the forend are within the ranges stated by Brophy as the numbers of the military marked guns.
