Does anyone know where I can find a forend for a pre-war Western Arms Corp. double barrel, double trigger 12 gauge? I'm sure it's not worth much, but it was my father-in-law's and my brother-in-law lost the forend back in the '60's.

Did you try Numrich?

They have sections for "Western Auto" and "Western Duo".

I don't know if either of those are the same company that made yours.

If it's a Western "Long Range Double", then it's an Ithaca NID SxS made on the cheap during the 1930's & 40's to undercut the competition.

If you have the forend iron, then just about any SxS forend wood can be altered to fit, but if the iron is also missing, I would try Numrich and Bob's Gun Shop for Ithaca NID parts of the same gauge/size.
