    What's the best way to fix a cracked forearm? Should I just glue it and clamp it or is there a better way?

    Depends--

    if you put brass pins all the way through with the expoxy that will help for sure-- I have seen the pins that are grooved used- dont know what the correct terminology for those are but they can be sanded off level with the wood- and look as if they were intended to be there all along-- I think Remington actually used a system like that at one time- not for repair but for reinforccement

    and how good do you want it to look? if you want it to look as good as new- you might want to send it to one of the wood pros on here

    regards from Iowa

    New Rem 1100s now come from the factory with a brass pin through the forend to prevent cracks. You can see the head of the pin an inch or so back from the magazine cap on the left side. I believe it is a headless threaded screw.
