  1. AH! I got it figured out.


    So the screw with the spring is actually a button. Pressing it in is the only way to release the forend. By me trying to force it off I guess I backed out the screw. I screwed the lose screw back in with the button pressed and now the gun functions fine. Locks up tighter than a bank vault too! Just fired off some bird shot in the back yard. Works perfect!

    Wrong Forend did it get mixed up with another guns ?

    Its been so long there is no telling. I don't believe so though. But you guys seem to be right. All Stevens 235s I can see do not have this forend.

    I have too many old Stevens hammer doubles than I can come up with an accurate guess and none have a forend that looks like that.  Wood shape aside,  the metal looks to be homemade or adaptation from some other shotgun. 


    The model number have always been between the two screws on the trigger plate in front of the trigger guard.   This gun looks to have been refinished so the model number was probably scrubbed off. 





  4. Yes, it does open with it off. This is when the barrels would open further than they should (not sure if this is normal or not.)


    How do you fit it correctly? I'm not new to double barrels and how they go together. I just don't want to force something when it shouldn't be. The knob on the front really has me wondering. Does it do anything?

  5. I don't remember what model it is. Maybe a 225 or 235?


    Anyways I got it and put it together a while back and have never shot it. I put two empty brass casings in it and I cannot get them out. From what I remember it would at first open all the way, as in hinge too far sometimes. Then it stopped doing that and now it seems to not open quite far enough to take the shells out. The lip of them hits the receiver. I put it away for months and just pulled it out to look at and would like to finally get it operational. I've tried to open it and can't get it to open easily and don't want to damage it.


    So I wanted to come here and ask you guys how it actually works. In particular, what is that knob at the front of the forearm and how does it work? As well, it is missing the rear screw to the trigger guard, does anyone know where I can find a replacement? I know it shot by the owner because I saw it. Only when it was taken apart I apparently can't put it back together correctly.
