trench gun bayo attachment

does anyone know where I can find a bayo lug attachment for the Remington M870 Mark1? if not, maybe where I can find the drawings of it so that i can have my machine shop make one for me? TIA

bayo lugs

Both Northridge and Sarco list vented handguard / bayo lugs for shotguns.

Northridge lists a Combo heat shied w/bayo lug attached, but the USMC version of the Trench gun only had the bayolug attachment without the heat shield. (as far as I know) Sarco didn't show it on their site but their site is not easily navigated anyway. I'll either check shotgun news or give them a call. Thanks.

Trench gun

Interesting! My cousin just picked up a Mod. 97 Trench gun and he said it had the bayo lug and not the handguard. We were both under the impression that the handguard was missing. Is there a way to determine if this one is USMC?

Check out the link below and it will give a basic overview of the shotguns used during the Vietnam War.

Also if ya want to get in even deeper, Bruce Canfield wrote "a collector's guide to United States Combat Shotguns". I have it on order, but, if it's as good as the article, it wil be a very handy book to have.

Have you checked Gun Parts Corp. ? In their catalog 21, which is a few years old, they had military surplus smooth forend ass'ys for 40.00. FSN-1005-00-437-4743. GPC part no. was SRF-C1. This may be what you're looking for.
On a different note, I talked to my cousin some more about his Mod. 97, and he said the handguard was definitely broken off. He ordered a repro and said that the bayo lug is slightly different. He's going to have the handguard attached to his original lug.

I called Numrich today and inquired about their smooth forend....It just so happens that I believe it to be the correct one. They measured and looked at it for me while I waited and it's description fits. I should have it sometime next week.

yeah, doin the homework is a lot of fun.....ya get a great education along the way. Plus ys wouldn't believe the amount of people that are eager to assist. Thanks to all. I still need a barrel, but I can use the one I have temporarily. Of course I still have to strip the bluing off the 870 and park it. I'm partial to Parkerized guns vs bluing.

heatshield and bayonet attachement question

Was the Remington Model 11 ever designed with a heatshield and bayonet attachement? Is it the same setup as the Winchester?

The photos in Canfields book show both the Remington Model 11 and Model 870 without heat shields. I would guess that since the Model 11 is a short recoil (i.e., the barrel and bolt move rearward initially together) the weight of a shield/bayonet lug would adversely affect its operation. Oops, spoke too soon. In Canfield's book there is a photo and mention of a prototype Model 11 with a wooden handguard and barrel jacket with a bayonet lug. He says that this was at the war's end and only one is believed to have been made.

The one photo I could find in his book of the 870 shows the bascially the same bayonet adapter as posted above. The 870 shown has a rear sight and a ramp front sight (looks to me like the one they put on their slug barrels). Also Canfield indicates that the M7 bayonet as used on the M16A1 is used with the 870.
