    Model 12 Winchester Forearm Problem

    Need advice on correcting the forearm that is wobbley, and is rubbing
    the side of my gun when it is pumped to eject the hull. Any advice from
    the Winchester Model 12 fans.

    Thank You
    David

    I've got a Model 42 that did that and the problem was that the wood was loose on the metal. I ended up making a little shim to fit in there to take up the clearance and it now works just fine.

    i agree with steve. you need some type ofr a shim on either end of the forend so when the nut on top is tightened it will grab the wood tight. sometimes something as thin as a couple pieces of peper work great. motordoc

    Having had numerous M 12's this problem occurs when the nut loosens if it wears enough you have to take action 2.

    1, using a spanner wrench, loosen the nut on the front of the forearm and twist the forearm back were it is centered then tighten the nut.

    2, at the back of the forearm iron, have a short piece of woodruff key soldered onto the iron, then have the wood inletted to a close fit on the key. This will hold the forearm wood in place even if the nut loosens.
