I recently bought a model 12 “STANDARD TRAP” , as marked near the matching s/n’s.  It was made in 1931, 12 gauge.  The checkered butt stock, very nice walnut, looks like other checkered stocks I have seen on trap models.  The forestock however is what I would call the standard 7″ grooved version found on field guns, not the checkered extension forestock.  I wouldn’t think it left the factory that way.  If I can find an extension forestock (I will post in the swap and trade section), do I need to change out the magazine tube also? Looking at pictures from various sources all tubes appear to be the same length.IMG_9292.JPGImage EnlargerIMG_9286.jpgImage Enlarger

No, you don’t have to change the mag. tube.

You will need a spanner wrench to remove the nut that holds the wood to the forearm slide.  Winchester 12 Ga Model 12 Forend Wrench, NEW Remington 870 Hard To Find | eBay

Best of luck with your forearm search.
