Izhmash Plinker Stock

Greetings - new guy here in need of some input on a stock build for an Izhmash 7-2 Basic Biathlon.

Build thread here – https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum....php?t=1167223

I am at the point where I need to pick a forearm type.

Choices are –

Thick walled Half hexagonal tube.

Thin walled Full hexagonal tube

Both have advantages and disadvantages.
Half Hex Thick –
Pro – barreled action easily separated from stock
Con – no thumb over grip without touching the barrel
Pro – very robust thickness
Con – snagging – will have to find a shape for the tip that does not catch on things

Full Hex Thin–
Pro – fully encloses barrel for thumb over top grip (which due to the nature of this build, I never use)
Con – for disassembly there is not enough room to tilt the barrel high enough to remove the action without removing the mag well and trigger pack
Pro – a few grams lighter (but not really noticeable)
Con – not as robust as the thick walled hex section, screw mounts need to be reinforced, more susceptible to crack or break if impacted or torqued (hasn’t been an issue with a previous build)

I will be shaping the end of either one with a profile that will be functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
