I wanted a home defense shotgun and had a nice enough older Wingmaster that was restricted to 2.75" shells. So I hunted up a nice 18.5" barrel and a 2rd extension from ATI. Then I found a great deal on a nice late 50's early 60's Wingmaster stock set. I then advertized on a big shotgun forum I was looking for a beater Corn Cob forend to use as a pattern to turn my own. (a real corn cob is way to spendy) I had noticed that the Corn cobs were just smaller then all dimensions then the std Wingmaster forend. SO I made a mandrel and mounted it up in my lathe and turned out a Corn Cob using a Wingmaster Std forend as the material. A dozen coats of WATCO and it came out pretty good. (the dimensions are so close on the bottom of my finished Corn Cob you can still see a little of the checkering from the WM forend) The Butt stock was cut down to equal a 12.75" Pull and the Remington Nuke grade poly finish was stripped off (used Kleen Strip paint remover and a single edge razor blade scraper it took five treatments) Then I refit the recoil pad and sanded everything nice and smooth. Another 10-12 coats of WATCO and it matched the forend pretty nice. I almost destroyed the gun trying to remove the forend nut (twisted the guide rods) Anyway after much cussing and work I got it all lined up pretty good and working again. WOW Lesson learned. Anyhow heres how it looks now.
