A technical challenge...
I have a bit of a technical challenge on my hands here... I have a Remington Magnum Wingmaster 870 that has been deactivated, and so now it's only purpose is as a museum display piece. I would like to change the wooden forend on it for one in better condition. Sound simple? Not in this case. The barrel and magazine tube are pinned and welded to the receiver, so that means that I cannot remove the forend in the usual manner, as I cannot remove the barrel. (Nor would i want to, as it would be illegal to do so). So my question is this:
Is there any way that I can get the old forend off and replace it with a new one?
Any help will be very greatly appreciated.
