    I have a 20 gauge Beretta 686 Onyx that has been hunted with a bit, and their is slight movement up and down in the forend, towards at the front of the forend (I'm describing the movement when the gun is held in the horizontal/shooting position). My question is can this be tightened up by me or a gunsmith? And how?

    try a little tape on the forearm stock, between the barrel and wood.

    Yes, to be done correctly the barrel lug needs to be built up by TIG welding and fitted.
    Incorrectly the barrel lug can be deformed with a punch or other device.

    I have had this problem the easy fix is to use the fuzzy side of velcro tape only need a small slice stuck on the front of the forearm wood under the barrel. Just use enough to compress and tighten the forearm too much will put pressure on the lug and wood so build up a little at a time.I do not flatten lugs and usually can avoid welding with this simple fix.

    Yeah, the *proper* fix is to build up the lug and refit, as already mentioned.

    Has anyone ever tried to build up a lug with JB Weld? U can sand and file the suff when it cures and is supposed to be hard as steel.
