Forend shoe for Winchester Model 37 .410 GA

Postby Myrtle Grove Bob » Sat Mar 10, 2012 8:39 am

Any help in locating one of these would be appreciated. Numrich lists it for $40.75 (which I am willing to pay) but it is "sold out".
Nu-line shows that they have one, but their price is $129.00. I'm not a gun collector or dealer. This was my first shotgun. It was a Christmas present 60 years ago. It has been handed down and handed down, but stayed in the family. I got it back and would like to get it back in shooting condition for my 8 year old grandson. It is broken right across the hole. Could the shoe be shipped somewhere and welded? The hole would probably have to be re threaded. Any advice would be appreciated.

Is it the old 37,or the 37a ? The old 37,s were metal were as the 37 A was plastic. Believe it or not the H&R/ NEF part fits perfect. Or at least it did on mine. Bought new in 1977.
Life is to short to hunt with a ugly gun.

Mike, thanks for your response. Its and old model 37, not a 37A and the shoe is steel. I'm assuming yours is a 37A?? since you bought it new in '77. (or did you buy the part new in '77?) Also is yours a .410 gauge? and what model H & R or NEF ? There are shoes available for the 37A .410's at reasonable prices. thanks again, Bob

This is what it looks like. Its about 3.5" long and about 3/8" wide. The hole is threaded. Thanks
