I broke the forend of my rifle while hunting last week. Does anyone have or know of a replacement available (original or reproduction)for a 1924 vintage 99F takedown?

Kojac - will send info after I find my camera.
It's a 20" barrel 30-30.
The forend is in three pieces at the moment, split lenthwise right through the spring latch and one side broken in half.
Will post pics later.

Bought a stock and forearm from Dakotadan on ebay and they both look very well made. I'm putting the butt stock on my circa 1920 99F on .303. The only oservation I have is that the forearm is a bit shorter than the forearm on my 99F. The butt stock appears dead on in shape.

If you do not find a replacement, you might take a look at Boses. I've not used them but I have heard nothing but good from all account.

Yep:

They can fix or make about anything. Send them the broken one and if they can't fix it they can use it as a pattern to make one.
