I saw this picture posted on a Swedish(?), perhaps Finnish site. I thought the rifle had an interesting forearm - certainly unconventional. This style would be very useful if you were trying to salvage a stock that you or someone else may have been overly aggressive in "hogging out" the upper barrel channel. I suppose the barrel is free floated. I'm gonna keep it in mind. I wish I could read the forum. No telling what it's about.

Looks like someone tried to give the forearm the "round look" (not sure what thats called, but it looks beautiful on Mike's 30-06) and had a boo-boo and the only way to fix it is what you're looking at.

Interesting looking, but not really my thing.

Not bad looking, really. It appears to be for gripping without checkering. It reminds me of something I've seen and can't pull out of my dusty brain. Also, that is some length of pull. That guys arms must be down to his knees.
