Hello all new guy here with a question. I have a Winchester model 37 .410 missing a forend/forearm and My question is, Can one from a model 37 12 gauge fit the .410 and is the forend hardware the same?

Thanks for any info you may have.

I can't recall working a 37 in either gauge, but I doubt it. Might be able to make the "reverse" happen?

I would think you would need to apply some filler material (at the least) to make your plan work.

Again, I have not worked a model 37.

Good luck to you and Iowaloha. Welcome to shooters forum.

I am assuming the hardware (metal parts) are missing as well as the wood so you would need a forend assembly which might be found at Gun Parts or Jack First. I am not certain on this but I think the 410 frame is smaller than the 12 ga frame so I doubt they would interchange but I only have a 20 so I cannot verify that. The barrel channel in the wood would certainly be different, as stated.

Good luck on your search. The 37 is a fine little single shot, especially in the 410.

Pretty much what I was thinking....:(

Thanks to everyone for the info, I'll check the sites mentioned and keep looking. I did see someone has two model 37 forends wood only no hardware on gunbrokers for $99.00 each starting bid....ridiculous:mad:

Thanks again,
Monte
