It looks like the forend has a quick release lever on it. Is that so and when you remove the forend does the barrel just pivot of the frame or do you have to drive the hinge pin out?

Yes, it does have the "no tools" quick take down forend. Very well done, and lock-up adjustable I might add. Once the forend is removed, which only takes a nanosecond, the barrel will pivot off the frame by simply pulling on the breeching lever. The hinge pin stays put, like it should, IMO.

Can be broken down into three parts (forend, barrel, receiver/stock), in just a matter of 1-2 seconds.

Nice. Is that a special take down model or do all of the 450BM and 45/70 V2's with the muzzle brakes have the quick release forend?

Not sure about the .45-70, but it is standard on the Scout V2 .450 Bushmaster.

I wasn't sure I would like it, thinking it might get sloppy over time. Boy was I wrong. It is adjustable for both length and height. Very well done locking mechanism that rides on the opposite side of the hinge pin as the barrel lug, and a free floated forend.

Looks like all the Scout V2 rifles (chambered in .450 Bushmaster) come with the quick take down forend. Includes the .45-70.

He was referring to all the .450 Bushmaster and .45-70 Govt caliber rifles with the muzzle brakes above.

I should have been more specific in my final answer, but we were discussing both calibers with muzzle brake earlier. I went back and (edited) that in. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks. A better shooter than I thought it would be.
