    I have split (about 4 inches long) the forearm on my Remington 11/87 and would like some recommendations on who can repair and refinish, not only the forearm, but buttstock also. Thanks for any assistance in this manner.

    With the cost of refinishing etc. you may be better off just buying new. For years Remington would replace wood "no charge" at The Grand. I don't know about now. Call Remington and see what they will do. They had a problem and reinforced the forearm with fiberglass at the reciever end. It doesn't cost anything to ask.

    John-Probably A good Idea. Unless it's an exceptional piece of wood your probably looking at a $200 to $300 bill for the work.

    Buy a new forend. You are about to spend between 200-400.00 depending on who does the repair and howmany pieces you choose to refinish. Todd

    A quick look on e-bay shows a new 11-87 forend with a bid of $25.00. It also show 3 forends for an 1100 now available. If you don't mind synthetics, a Jack West stock and forend would be my choice... Dan Thome (Trap2)
