    Just wondering if anyone has a forend latch they would be willing to sell or knows of anywhere to buy one. Already called Giacomo and he doesn't have any.

    Yes the "latch" is what the button operates. It is called a latch in the diagram i got from this site. I'll give whiz a call tomorrow hopefully someone has one.


    Thanks,

    To Jim Bailey: I have one --- knew they were expensive and difficult to fix. What is a fair price? Would like to to sell the receiver less the trigger and forearm iron with the wood. How about $650.00 ?

    Good luck. Lack of availability of this one part is the reason I sold my TM-1.

    I can't believe there aren't any machinists that make that part it seems so simple to make with the right equipment. Here's another question then, what can I do to make the one I have work? The reason I need a new one is b/c the forend is loose when i attach it to the barrel.

    Sounds like your barrel lug is worn.

    I'd guess they would put a little weld on the lug and re-cut / file to fit.

    On the otherhand, sounds like it's time for a tune up. You could have other hinge / locking block / monobloc problems that only look like a forend problem.

    I think I found the problem. The forend iron has a slight bend in it making it loose. I plan on getting it rebuilt within the next year I just can't do it right now books for school are expensive. I know the block is worn and needs replaced soon and I'm sure many other things need replaced but I really don't think that is the issue right now.

    Thanks for all the answers

    Smoken send me an email sahevener@yahoo.com with how you would like your money I still don't think its the latch but if they need replaced a spare can't hurt. I had a machinist look at it and the forearm is shimmed right now and everything fits tight. Idk I guess a gunsmith needs to see it asap I'll have to get on the horn.

    Thanks again
