Like Dave mentioned, I would definitely recommend finding an older style forend that fits the barrel contour well. I passed on that barrel for the fact that I find newer forends to be a PITA with those older barrels. Between the contour and the forend stud being different I couldn't ever get a good balance of stability and a narrow margin between the forend and the barrel while trying to "float" the barrel with o-rings.
