I just picked up a Model 37 in 16 gauge and it's in very good shape for and old single shot.
I went to Numrich to get some missing/needs replaced parts and found everything but one.
I would like to find a Forend Escutcheon. If anyone has one or knows where to get one, please let me know.

OK, Jack First Guns did not have it nor did they have a supplier for it.
So, the call is still out for a Winchester Model 37 Forend Escutcheon.

No one has another source I can try? Darn the bad luck! :(

Just about anyone with a lathe can make one for you. A gunsmith, a community college student, etc. Measure the diameter of the screw that goes through it, the depth and diameter of the screw head, measure the depth and diameter of the hole it goes into, and give them those dimensions and wait 5 minutes. It's just a metal liner for the hole so the hole won't get wallowed out by the screw.
