Contender forend Question.....



Log in to see fewer ads
Was looking for info on where to obtain a bench rest style forend for my TC Contender carbine. The kind with a wider flat bottom.

I remember seeing them years ago when TC's were big but have not been able to locate one.

My contender is now a dedicated 22 Hornet platform. I noticed that the standard wood forarm is small and seems to roll around alot when on the sandbags.


Any info would be helpful. Im trying to stay away from pay 100+ for a custom one. I know TC did make one as I remember.

Thanks In Advance

Dave

There's a gentleman in West Virginia that makes grips & forends for the TC products by the name of Dave Dolin. Awhile back I needed a forend for my G2 Rifle and had him make me one.



Does beautiful work and reasonable prices

I am searching for something a bit more sporting shaped than the one presently on my carbine, interested in a trade?

I'd like to get a carbine length forend shaped similar to the one on my pistol, don't know if they made such a thing.

I didn't like the reg carbine forend, so went with the longer G2.

No Herrett style forends were ever made for the carbine/rifle barrels...
DavidD in WV will NOT duplicate a Herrett design. (I tried last year.)
you may want to check Tony's grips. His designs may be of interest to you.

furniture design

Herrett forearms are not compatible with the 'boss' on the side of the receiver of the G2. They bind on it when barrel tips open.
Wide target forearms are desirable when shooting from the bench.
Legs do great too.

I saw this one on E-Bay, looked pretty cool:

I use a bipod when I shoot off a bench, mine has furniture by Tony's forends and Grips:

I didn't realize they made them from anything other than laminates, thanks I'll have to check them out.

Bullberry does good wood at reasonable $ and turn around. I've got a couple of their 'target' fore-ends that are apx. 2" wide and 8" long. They are set up for the Bullberry hanger-bar attachment system [I like it].
Check out the web site and give them a call.
