Default Different forends

Want to get a shorter Schnabel type forend for a 20" heavy contour barrel in walnut. Do they make such a thing?

That's who I got the heavy contour forend from. He said the only one for the heavy. I'm just going to cut 4 inches off of it. It has a square end anyway.

Yes that squared off for end is something else You would think they would put a little effort into making it look better I think with a little sander work I can make it into a beaver tail type that will look a lot better
