    I just purchased a 3200 and am trying to figure out if the forearm has been updated or not to prevent it from cracking. The ejectors are still in place. Could someone please check the pictures and tell me for sure if it has been updated or not?

    It doesnt look like anything has been done to this forend. Just like it came from the factory.

    I am quite certain the factory updates for the 3200 effected the receiver only. No changes were made to the forend.

    If you are speaking of the reinforcement of the metal that Laib's does your forearm does not appear to have the update. The update is a solid piece of metal across the inside rear of the metal where the pin for the ejector hammers goes through from side to side.

    Pat Laib does an update to the forearm. It's not included in the Remington Update that was done to the receivers.

    Thanks to everyone, especially ou.3200 for your picture. Appears my forearm definitely does not have the update/upgrade that Pat Liab does. Guess I have to figure out now if I want to go that route or convert the ejectors to extract only.

    You can take a lot of stress of cocking the gun by changing out the ejector springs, Ive do this by useing 1911 firing pin springs, They will just lift the ejectors so that you can remove the hulls. Makes opening the gun very easy.

    Grunt - thanks. I called Doug Braker today and talked me through what I needed to do to remove the ejector springs and rods. I went ahead and removed them this evening and will try it that way for a while. If that gets too painful, then I will probably go your route.
