Default Restoring my first shotgun - help on finding a part?

My first shotgun was a Winchester Ranger Youth model 20 gauge, 5 shot pump action.

Over the years somehow the forend has cracked and I'm looking for a replacement (wood, walnut look I believe).

Does anyone know of a place to find such an item? My search has told me that this is a pretty rare gun (only made for a couple years).

Thanks for any help, I'd like to hand this down to my son one day.

Christoph, the best advice I can give you is to scour the internet. There is a Winchester Collectors forum that may be helpful as well as assorted shotgun forums.

Please let us know how your search goes. If worse comes to worst, post a picture for me. I may be able to do an invisible repair for you depending on the damage.
