I recently inherited a Remington model 760 GameMaster 30-06 from my father. The markings on the barrel, based on my Internet searches, indicate it was manufactured in Dec 1951. The gun needs some TLC. First and foremost the wood on one side of the forearm/forend is broken and missing so I need to find a replacement. Figure I will likely replace the stock as well.

Not having any luck so far with Internet searches.

Questions: will a stock and forearm/forend for the much newer 7600 model fit? If so, would replacing the original wood with a synthetic be good, bad or just a personal preference thing?

Remington didn't produce 760s till 1952 , barrel code YY , 51 would be XX . 7600 forends won't fit your gun . However the Butler Creek replacement , will adapt to fit all of them ! If you have a 760 with an XX barrel code , you have an extremely rare one . I've never seen one at least .

Wow, interesting. It definitely has an xx code on the barrel and is a model 760. I guess I will have to do some further research. Thanks for the info.
