I made the upper hand guard and the metal bits to attach it, these are not available anywhere.
The swivels and bayonet attachment are made by Parts for antique guns, made to order in small runs.
I order these back in Dec 2021 and just received them late last week.

shoot em if you got em

Real old? is it a 20ga is it a model1912 when these first came out they were only 20ga, when switched to the model 12 they were offered in 12 and other gauges.

If its a 12ga model 12, and not a 3" chambering, you can get conversion kits, these were WW2 trench guns/guard guns

It is old, 12 gauge and 2 3/4" . That's an interesting kit. Think they ship to Canada?

They sure do, that`s were I got my bits.
They`re taking orders now but its a long 16-20 weeks, as they`re all hand made and the runs are limited.
There are other kits out there, you`d have to do a google search to see whats what.

I had Parts for Antique Guns make it, this bayonet mount is specific to the Remington Model 10 shot guns as the Winchester system was different and they held patents and didn`t want to share.
