Have a Lc smith field grade 16 gauge looking for complete forearm wood and metal or just the metal fws42522 serial number if that helps thanks
First - I have checked everything on GunBroker.com auction side - and there is no L C Smith forearm available. There is a parts gun but unfortunately no forearm. Had there been you would have been able to put yours back in service and and sold off the remaining parts in any of a number of ways. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/1038030794
There are other venues that I have checked - all of the available ones were only the wood - no mounting hardware. Useless without the mounting hardware unless you are going to keep it in place with zip-strips. I did not find any separate mounting hardware available.
I no longer subscribe to The Firearm News - but I still have a few issues around and I will send you the 'ads' section if you private mail me your USPS mailing address. No guarantees - you will have to run them down one by one to see if they have what you need.
Next - I do not know how much you have invested in what you have now - but I suspect that a complete forearm is going to be around $250-$300. If you were to list it after another forearm was fitted with 'lucy-in-the-sky-with-diamonds' asking price it will be a tough sale. This one is more reasonable: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/1036871503
