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

Here's the rifle. Took 3 1/2" off the forend. First 2 shots in the same hole at 40 yds. Will be doing the break in over the next several days...
Love the recoil and lower report!

I will probably do more with it later. Want to get it running and broke in right now. I have another forend I opened up for a Custom Shop slug barrel that fits well. I may get it pillar bedded, as the slug gun opened up the screw holes after several rounds. Ready to make some holes in paper now...

Oldandslow, here's what the factory heavy contour forend looked like before I chopped it. End of barrel is right at the bottom of the pic...
