What Bill G. said. But you also need to ensure the forearm received the necessary attention. Because of the "force" of the ejectors operating when the action is opened, stress is placed on the forearm. The "metal" in the forearm is a stamped piece. If the forearm area isn't reinforced there is a likelihood the forearm (wood) will crack. I don't have a picture of my One of One Thousand forearm but suffice to say if I did it would show the 1/2" square piece that cracked off of the forearm. As an aside, some folks have commented they have disconnected the ejector springs ( or weakened them ) and this has solved or prevented the forearm crack(ing) problem.


There has been much written about this in past threads - Pat Laib is the go to guy for this and other 3200 repairs/maintenance. I can't point you to the past links on here - perhaps someone else can.

copperjohn has the straight scoop. If you can live without ejectors, shells will still be extracted, you will likely never need additional work on the forearm. I did that with several guns without issues and also painted on an epoxy-like material to the interior wood surfaces; just a light brushing of Verethane or like stuff.....breakemall
