    I need to machine a new fore end iron for an 1875 double barreled 10 gauge.
    Can you make me a video to show me how? ;)

    A replacement gun? Because no original parts are available.
    I was just kidding, but that really is the project I'm currently messing with. The gun isn't worth the trouble, but it has sentimental value. It came to me missing pieces, so I'm making what I can't buy.

    No i meant Replacement parts. small parts for are easy to make but larger pars you will need atleast a picture or schematic drawing of the part to somewhat guide yourself off of.

    Yeah, that's not an option in this case. Very few of these guns left, and no solid records remain.
    A few pictures can be found on the internet. Not much to go on, but nothing I haven't successfully tackled in the past. The rest of the gun is in fair shape (considering it's age) so I have plenty of reference points to take measurements from. It's a WM Moore side lever. The parts I need to fabricate is the fore-end iron, the block to hold it in place, and fore stock.
    Fairly simple pieces. ;)
