Splinter forend falls off
Posted by Chris Cefalu on September 29, 2020, 2:02 pm
Hello I have 1922 Ideal grade 12ga with a splinter forend that comes off very easily with minimal pressure and will fall off while firing. It goes with what seems like a fair amount of pressure but doesn't seem like it latches very positively. You don't need to use the thumb release to remove the foreend, just need to pull very lightly and it comes straight off. Any thoughts? I don't want to fill on the barrels or cause any further damage. Is this something a qualified gunsmith can rectify?
