Default Huntsman forearm

Ok... so I got my huntsman .50 black powder barrel on my sb2 frame, gun works great, sent my wife out with the 'o6 the last two years and shes brought home a deer each time. and I'm excited to get her behind a patch and ball, only one problem. the handi rifle forearm doesn't accept a ram rod, besides purchasing a huntsman forearm, I've considered carving one myself, my question is how can the ram rod be placed below the barrel, flushed up with the muzzle, but be long enough to send a patch and ball to the breech, wouldn't the forearm screw in the bottom center of the forearm inhibit a proper length ram rod? How does a factory built huntsman forearm bypass the forearm screw? The image I have attached is the 20 Ga barrel but I'm using it as an example, I feel there will be a few inches difference between the ram rod and where the ball would be seated, any thoughts on this?

The factory ramrod telescopes, twists to lock full length.

Sidekick/Huntsman slide out and adjust to size, like some CVA'S. My CVA Wolf does this. I load with a full sized rod before going out, and only use the adjustable one if I am out in the field for a follow up.

Jonmarshall - If your looking for a ramrod for the Huntsman that will fit under the Huntmans barrel, I would recommend you look into buying a Hubbards ramrod. I don't have his contact number anymore, but try the links in the following thread.

Not too sure Hubbard is still making ramrods. Check out Dougs message boards or Arrowhead sporting goods for a folding rod you carry in your pocket. You wont need a Huntsman forend with one of these rods.

Did Mr. Hubbard retire?

Not 100% sure. He didn't deliver the last rod I ordered. I think there was something posted about it a while back.

I'm almost certain Hubbard retired. I can't reach him anymore either.

I used to have a Huntsman, and found the telescoping ramrod to be pretty fragile. After I broke it and had to fix it, I resorted to a dowel rod. It stuck out 6" or so past the muzzle, but it worked. Part of the problem was a .45 ramrod they expected to be used interchangeably with a .58.
As to the screw, you could have one made large enough to be cross-drilled for the ramrod.
