Remington 7400 Forend same as 742 & 740?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Have a friend of mine who has her Late Father's Remington 7400 with a cracked forend. Would like to get a replacement for Her and get Her hunting with it but having a hard time finding one. Is the Remington 7400 Forend same as 742 & 740? Might open up more options if it does. If anyone has one available please let me know. Sorry to post this here but posted it in the Gunsmithing Forum and nothing yet. Thank you.

It seems like it would be very difficult to find a replacement.  Maybe those stock makers like Boyd’s has replacement pieces, I don’t know.  It almost sounds like you find a used rifle that’s not cracked and swap them and try to sell the rest.  If it’s not too bad, you can fix the crack with epoxy.  There are plenty of videos on YouTube about that.  I sometimes watch them to see how the repair turns out.  The channel Mark Novak, shows a few repairs to mausers and other WW2 rifle foreends.  He does a good job.
