    I have a Winchester Select Energy that the forearm is loose. When I put two pieces of paper between the forearm and barrels its tight. How do you solve this problem on your own? Appreciate any help

    There should be a screw in the forarm iron that can be tightend for a better lock to the barrel lug.

    I have a Beretta 682 O/U. I bought an unsingle for it from a fellow shooter. When I installed this barrel the forearm was loose. I bought some lead tape from a golf store and stuck a couple of layers of this tape on the barrel that fits inside the forearm. The forearm is now tight. The correct way to do it is have some weld placed on the barrel lug and then file it down until the fit is correct. To me, the tape works just fine. Ed

    Wrist curls work pretty good.

    shannon 391 is right. Unlike most shotguns, the Winchester Select Energy has an adjustable screw in the forearm iron. You'll need to take the wood off the iron and then use an extra short allen wrench to adjust it. If you do it I suggest you put a drop of blue loc-tite on the screw, in my experience they have a habit of working loose.
