 Post subject: Question about Model 12 forearms

I just picked up an early sixties vintage (1,907,xxx range) 12 gauge riot, with a Boyd buttstock on it. It has the factory later style 14 groove beavertail style forearm. I was wondering if anyone might know if the earlier 14 groove 6 and 7/8ths inch long flat bottom forearm would fit on that action sleeve. I know there were a few variations of the action sleeve/bar over the years. The reason for the question is that I have a factory stock set I'd like to replace the existing wood with. The butt fits perfectly and I would hope that the forearm would also, but I don't know for sure, and I don't have the proper spanner to remove the forearm wood and check myself. If someone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Can not answer the question. But you are going to need the spanner anyway. I just bought one from Midway for less than $10 bucks. A really cheaply made tool but it works.

The short answer is yes, they will change out fine. I actually did this exact replacement many years back because I preferred the look of the older flat-bottom fore-end. I later sold that gun and in retrospect, would not do that change again as the later design is more in line with modern stock/fore-end dimensions. I found that I shoot the guns with the later dimensions much better. Bill M is correct, you need the spanner wrench to do this change without buggering-up the metal piece at the front of the fore-end. Your satisfaction will most likely come down to the personal fit issue.

Xpert16, thanks for clearing that up. After close to 300 views of the question with no response from anyone, I was beginning to think that I'd just have to see for myself.
