    I just recently moved up to a DT10. I have disassembled the gun a few times for cleaning. Each time the forend is hard to take off.

    Am I missing something as I don't think it should be this hard to remove

    Thanks

    If you bought the gun new, be patient it will become easier as time passes.

    I have a DT10. Just squeeze the forearm to the barrel and the open leaver will be easier to open. The remove the forearm.

    Mine had worn the blue off the barrels so I opened it up some. Still too tight but better and at least possible to remove the barrels now.

    Be careful. The screws that hold the inner wood on will back out. I have a nice gouge out of the side of my forearm wood. Those screws need to be checked every few outings.

    I have no idea what inner wood means or the screws that could gouge out the side.

    Pick up a DT 10 and remove the forearm. There are wood strips on each side of the barrel...I don't know their technical name. they are held in place by screws that hold them in place. If the screws back out, which they are prone to do, they grab the inside of the forearm wood and impede the removal. That impediment points to the topic of this thread.

    No such thing on my DT10-L. Don't know why it would be different from a standard DT10.

    Sorry birdman...I have the combo and the "inner wood" is on the unsingle barrel.
