    I may have really done something here, but in summary... I put together a Perazzi MX 2000 from separate barrels, stock, trigger and receiver after securing the same through various sources and inventory. Now, appears the forestock won't come off even after significant is pressure applied (with release pulled, of course...). So, perhaps I snapped on the forestock and the release is not properly engaged... Anyone else ever have this issue? And, if so... any thoughts on how to get the forestock off without tearing everything into pieces and splinters? THX! W

    Unfortunately, P guns need to have all parts fitted by a competent gunsmith. With this in mind, you may be way ahead of the game to send the gun to Giacamo USA or one of the several other P gun specialists, have it taken apart and correctly fitted. You could break the wood which would cost more than getting it done.

    Seen many of them before, the worst you can do is break the forearm wood.
    Which is cheaper than send it to a good gunsmith like suggested above.

    Try this, PUSH the forarm forward and up as hard as you can while pull down the latch, then pull the forearm down. Sound tricky, but I managed to save 99% of situations like this before.

    This is the safest way to deal with it. you'll save the wood.

    As always, good advise from Steve. "forestocks" on here go for 100-150. The shipping and insurance would cost you that much so if you do as Steve said, even if you do crack it, you're still money ahead. Giacamo doesn't work for free either.

    Thanks for the comments! If it was a standard stock, I'd probably have already destroyed it getting it off! Unfortunately it is. Larry Garroutte custom stock... So I will get it to a professional for at least a qualified attempt to salvage the wood... If not, as my daddy used to say, "It's nothing money can't fix..."

    Thanks for the thoughts. W

    On occasion, I gently and carefully grip the forearm wood in my soft-jawed vice. I then use a BRASS punch and tap inside the barrel channel, front-to-rear, with the punch contacting the barrel lug area (rear) of the F/A iron.

    This will normall permit the "breaking" of the bond of the wood and forearm iron and you can then very easily slide the iron back out of the wood.

    Of course, you need to remove the two #358 hex screws first!
