    Throw up a few pictures.
    No reason why it shouldn't shoot well. and...other rifles have plenty plastic too.

    I'd phone them up and get them to order one in then you will be able to collect when it arrives, who is the importer? That might be the problem, if there are no spares in the country.....

    Good Luck

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    E-mail Mossberg direct. American customer service is usually spot on, especially compared to Edgar Brothers.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Harry Mossberg customer service used to be very ................................. very good but the holding company who owns Remington brought them so i doubt it's as good now. I dealt direct with Mossberg over my 500 Slugster but that was 35 years ago now......................... Sheesh don't time fly.

    a decent gunsmith could knock up a claw from scratch.
    if it is the difference between losing a weekends stalking and getting one made.

    There are lots of gunsmiths within 2 hours of you.

    If it's going to take an unspecified time to get the rifle sorted and you bought it new, you should take it back to the shop and demand your money back as it could be described as "non merchantable quality" and your legal rights will apply.
