Serial # 5926 20 gauge extractor gun |
I am just getting into LCs and my 1st post here. What a great gun and awesome people supporting the history and upkeep of these American works of functional art.
I bought a barreled action from a local shop and noticed the forend lug had grooves down the sides. The serial number range and grooves lead me to think this gun had a Curtis latch.
The owner at the shop said they may still have the forearms metal and would look and let me know. Maybe I will get lucky
If he can not find the metal will a standard FW 20 GA metal work?
