    I recently purchased a new unsingle barrel for my 682 Gold E. The forearm is a little loose. The movement is front to back. I was wondering what the easiest way is to tighten this up. I was told that you can put a small dab of weld on the front of the underside lug and then file to fit. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks, Ed

    I know this is simple, but just in case, make sure the screws in the fore end iron are tight.

    Welding is your only option....unless you want to install a small shim behind the forend lug each time you assemble the gun.

    DO NOT punch or peen the lug or forend iron!!

    You need to build up the back of the lug. Either shim it of build it up with shome other substance. However the best method would be to sent it to a gumsmith that knows what they are doing like Cole in Maine or briley.

    The best way would be to add some metal (weld) file it to fit and be done with it. Peace of mind and no worries. Better concentration. Better scores,etc.
