Its from a top-break 12ga, it has no metal parts on it, it seems to fit wood-to-metal with a place for a fastener of some kind underneath in a cut-out with a curved bottom surface. Does anyone know what gun this fits?

Looks to be a forearm without the metal parts that help it stat attached to the gun

It may be for a little double gun, and would still require some inlay work to fit. The flat on the one side does not look like a finished piece, otherwise pretty high quality looking.

Seems pretty dainty unless your hands are real big. Maybe a .410?

Seems to me to be a forearm for one of the single shot shotgun designs that folds almost completely in half... the recess would be for the trigger guard.

That would have been my guess...................

Tom, you are brilliant! You have nailed it. I also have a barrel I thought from another shotgun but they didn't seem to be of a breed so I never tried them together, but I now have a perfect fit--they are back together. At least the barrel and forend.
The name on the barrel is "Investarm-made in Italy" --the quality of workmanship is very good, and it is the folding design as you said. Too bad I have only the barrel and forend--it would be a pretty cool little gun!
Dad was a gunmaker/stockmaker, and this may have needed a stock made--maybe that's how dad came to have it--I guessing here. At least I now have a name and a gauge--12 magnum.

That is what I was going to say, Fred deserves the credit, I knew what it was when I saw it but when I scrolled down & seen that Fred had already hit on it, that`s when I said that would have been my guess & put up the Numrich Schematic...............
