Default WTB Snap on forend type screw

Hello,

I know this is probably a long shot, but i'm looking to purchase a couple of bell type forend screws for my early model contender with snap on forend at less than outrageous prices. I have seen 1 for sale for 35 dollars for 1 screw somewhere, but I was hoping there might be something more reasonable out there? I'm surprised no one has done a reproduction run on these yet. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help.

How about $10 mailed? If that is too rich for your blood make an offer.

How about heck yes! I'd be happy to pay that and I appreciate the offer. Can you P.M. me the details?

Purchased 1 screw from a fine gentleman Beck on this site. I am still in need of a couple more if anyone has any for sale. Apparently everyone robs them off the barrels before selling the barrels. Thanks, Raymond.

just a note:
The screws that compliment the forearm should stay with the forearm, not the barrel.
The barrel can still use a conventional forearm without a bell-headed screw.

Gemihur,
Yes. I also have the 80's era short butterfly forend cut for octagon barrels, but I'm trying to get a set of octagon barrels together to use strictly with my snap on early frame and a few of the barrels I have are missing the screws. hence the need for the bell head screw. I've been looking at a way to possibly turn down a socket head screw to match the shape of the bell head screw close enough to make it work.

I think you are wrong, they should go with the barrel on which they came. That is part of the barrel type, type one or two, because they only came on those certain barrels and then the barrels were soon changed to the universal type forearm. I am not an official in the knowledge of Contender barrels, but that is sure the way I feel it should be. But if possible the original barrel that came with a certain frame should be kept with that frame.

I do agree with mrmurl to maintain the authenticity, that parts not separate, but that practice restricts the versatility of it's use, the key feature in it's design.
