    I lost a forearm screw - don't ask how. I need to shoot this weekend. Can I shoot the gun with only 1 forearm screw holding the wood to the iron? It seems tight and firm.

    What kind of gun? Try your local hadware store. Sometime you'll be surprised at what they have in stock. I know that mine has a very large assortment.

    I have actually borrowed parts from a friends gun when we were in different squads. At the Dixie grand last year, I used Terry Roush's K-80 forend for the first event. We were on the same squad for the next two events so I used his wifes forend. My forend was safely back at the Motel.

    You could probably borrow a screw from a friend.

    If it's a type 3 Pgun, best get it fixed before shooting.

    It's a Kolar T/A a friend of a friend was letting me try. Per Ed Y, I went to the hardware store and found a screw that fit. Thx for the assist and advice. I really didn't want to shoot it, if it would cause problems.
