    I have an Ithaca TM1. I can't figure out how to remove the forend iron fron the forend itself. Any guidance appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Wayne:

    Remove forend. Look at the forend iron from the inside. You will see
    a small slotted screw in the center. Remove it. You can now remove
    the part you push to remove the forend. The slotted screw holds it
    in place. Run the Perazzi stock wrench down inside the forend
    and unscrew the bolt that holds the iron to the forend. It is easy
    to loose the small screw so watch it.

    What sky buster said. Once the small screw is loose enough to allow the rod to go forward and free the "push button" rod, take it out and use the stock wrench to take out the retainer that holds the forend iron in. I just had mine apart to refinish the stock. Well worth the effort.

    Hey Wayne,

    If you'll PM me your email address I'll send you a schematic for the Perazzi TM1/TMX.

    Thanks for all the advice. I removed the screw and bolt. The iron will move about 1/8" or so and gets tight. I haven't used anything other than my fingers to try to separate the wood from the iron. What next?

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Never mind. I went back out to the garage,picked up the forend, wiggled the 2 parts again and they separated.

    Thanks again,
    Wayne

    I have a late model TM 1, not an Ithaca or Winchester import. I don't see a screw in the iron. Do these later models have a different mechanism?

    They're all alike. With the forearm off and looking from the inside there's a small access hole. Slightly depress the button and you'll see the screw head down in the hole. Loosen the screw and the button can be withdrawn along with the return spring. Insert your stock removal tool into the void and unscrew till it can be pulled out. The iron can now be removed.
    When re-installing, be sure that the small screw goes back into the small groove in the button shaft.

    As said the samll screw is a problem to use and very easy to lose.
    Had a allen head screw made for mine. Allen head will stay on the
    wrench and isn't so easy to mess up head as the factory screw.

    Look at the right side circled area.

    I have other schematics on my website.

    OldPshtr, that is a great idea. Jim "Whiz", I think there's a new market for you to explore. Now Jim is my "go to" guy for Perazzi TM 1 problems. Helped me out on more than one problem. I keep a copy of his TM1 schematic on the wall in my shop/cave.
