My forend has a fine crack inside. Any suggestions?
Had the gun checked out at the grand and everything was tightened-but the forend was hard to put on after, then I noticed the crack. A gunsmith locally told me to get a new forend. Appreciate any info.
Judy. They are hard to come by. I have a MX3 with a fixed/glued forend. I could do it for you in a flash and fix the reason it cracked in the first place. I recommend another gunsmith. My personal choice would be Doug Braker for the MN area, Tron for the MI area and many others around. Fixing a crack by gluing it and relieving the stress that caused it is no big deal to most competent gunsmiths. Devault in Pa. Allem out east too, Check wiht Giacamo etc etc.
