Question on Beavertail forend for SKB/Ithaca SxS Shotgun

I bought a Model 100 SKB/Ithaca SxS shotgun and want to buy (or trade the small forend for) a larger beavertail forend since I mostly shoot black powder loads and the barrel can get hot quickly.

 

Question:  What SKB models come with a beavertail forend that fits the Model 100 so I know what to look for?  Model 150?  Model 200?  Are there any other SKB models that their forends fit the Model 100?

I use a slip on cover like this if you have a thin/splinter style forearm.

Be aware that if you switch you will need the entire fore end, not just the wood.  The fore end iron for the splinter and the beaver tail are completely different.  The 100, 150 and 200 all came with splinter or beavertail and should interchange but may required some fitting by someone familiar with SKBs.

New beavertail forearms are available from SKB.  These are checkered and finished and they will fit to you gun if you send them the entire gun.  As stated, you will need some new forearm iron parts as well.  Hope this helps.

Don Fordyce aka Klickitat Bob makes really nice barrel guards.  Some fancy tooling if desired.

Often vends with Palo Verde at Winter Range/EOT.
