need help finding parts
I have been having problems tracking down parts for my crescent shotgun and was wondering if anyone could help me. I have a exposed hammers crescent 20 ga sxs (coil springs) and need an extractor, forend assembly, and a sear spring (right). I checked numrich gun parts and they are sold out of all of them. does anybody know where else I can find these parts?

All I know to do is check some of the online auction sites for parts or a parts gun.

I'm going to go along with Hawg on this 1. Finding a parts gun may be easier than finding the parts. Check with for a parts gun.

Ok, I looked on gunbroker and found an old 12ga version of my gun which will I can get the forearm assembly off od and possibly the springs if I decide to get it. The last thing I need is the extractor. I cannot find one anywhere. Would I be able to safely replace it with something like a generic one if it would fit or could I make one on a cnc mill?

Any suggestions?

You should be able to make an extractor. It won't be easy but if you're experienced with a mill you can handle it.

Crescent used over 100 different trademarks. If you see a hammered double with any of these names the extractor is probably the same.

Wow, That is a lot of companies. Thanks for the help, I'll check these companies before I even attempt to make an ejector.

Thanks again

texaswoodworker 06-16-2011 01:08 AM

Ok, I looked through all of these companies on numrich and several of them turned up with the part I need but they are sold out. So unless they get new ones soon, I'll just have one made. Any ideas what type of steel I should use?

Thanks again for all the help everybody. I really appreciate it.
