Fitting 1897CL Fore End To A 39a?



Log in to see fewer ads
I received my 1894CL stock and 1897CL fore end from Numrich this week and the stock fit nicely but of course the fore end being for an octagonal bbl is going to need some fitting. Whats a good/best way to do this? My 1st thought is a wooden dowel wrapped with sand paper. If anybody has any other suggestions I'd be happy to hear them. I've never been mistaken for a wood worker!

Wow, that is going to be absolutely beautiful, the sandpaper glued to a dowel will work well, be very careful not to open the top sides too much. I start with more aggressive grit than you would think, 60 or 80,that way you can sand with delicate feel, and check fit often

Use your forearm cap as a guide.

Thanks for the advice guys, I appreciate it and its coming along! As far as I can tell by the screw holes in the fore end cap and the bracket they go thru, I've got less than an 8th of an inch to go. Taking it slow and taking a break when ever I catch myself wondering where the Dremel is.

It came out pretty good! Now I'm just hoping I don't have to look at a piece of sandpaper for a very long time...

That is beautiful. Good job. I have that stock set, not as striking figure as your wood. I hope to find a 39A with a broken stock cheap someday and do the same thing.

On mine the fore end was a little long and the front cap area as well as the rear had to be modified a little to allow the piece to fit. The rear piece has the hole for the main screw drilled at a different angle and also had to be modified a little to allow the screw to "find" the threads and attach the rear stock properly.

I put my stocks on an older/cheaper gun in less than perfect condition and now have a fugly gun with a nice stock.

Man that is some pretty wood.

I ordered one of those buttstocks for an 1895 I picked up not too long ago. It was so-so wood, and had a long scratch down one side, and a chip taken out at the tang. I sent it back and am awaiting a replacement.
