Who makes the smallest diameter/thinnest forend?

Sythetic not wood. Looking for something really low profile like the forends on the old ithica 37's. its for a winchester pump, there was an oem one made by winchester for the defender i think, but cant find it online anywhere. I have seen the choate brand but want even thinner.

This is the oem one i cant find

Why not trying your hand at making one from fiberglas cloth & gel ?

Just swab release agent (paste wax) on the wood-less slide handle & drape the cloth over it (upside-down), wete it & trim it after the gel cures.

Apply as many layers of cloth as you want, wetting as you go - until the thickness is what YOU want.

Any marine/boat supply chain store should have all you need.
