I was wondering if anyone might know where I can find an upper forend rivet for a Model 1895 SRC?20240502_193119.jpegImage Enlarger

See the picture for reference. The upper rivet is missing and you can see the bottom rivet in place.

Thanks

Well now, I’ve never heard it called a “Rivet”. Not exactly sure what the factory term is.

Have you tried taking off the upper guard?

If you decide to, you should find on the rear of the guard where there is a large u-shaped retaining spring that fits into slots on the bottom forearm. Said spring is held into the upper guard by two lugs that go into the wood.

There was a guy a while back selling reproductions, but hadn’t seen them in a while. You might take the guard off and have the retaining spring copied by a machinist.

Sincerely, 

Maverick

Thanks Maverick. I don’t think I’d personally attempt to remove the upper guard myself but I have a gunsmith who’s going to look the rifle, maybe he will. 

I saw the post where the gentleman was selling reproductions but he posted “all sold out”.

How large is the through hole and the head diameter?

Cilrah-

If it is a rivet I would take a look at the knife making supplies at Track of the Wolf. They have a brass rivet for attaching knife scales that will have to be modified but would be easier than starting from scratch.

Such flat head rivets are available from Amazon, for example. The question is how big they need to be.
