New LR Bench Rig

6 inch wide forend and 3" below the grip.
Anyone want to guess the weight?

    Nice looking rig Ernie! I'm guessing that barrel contour is trying to make a weight class, so I'll say 15 lbs.

    This is a 1-piece stock, and since it is 6 inches wide in the forend, I seriously doubt anyone would consider it, "An added vertical forend grip," since the forend is permanent and is not designed to be held with your other hand.

    You may want to read this NFA reg., that front vertical box section could be construed as a hand grip.

    Now I understand what you're talking about.
    But it is nowhere close to the Foreend and is not an added piece

    Not worried.
    The 3 inch wide bottom connects the grip to that other part that is forward anyway.
    If This was a XP 100 R action that front part is where the magazine would be to hold more ammunition.
    I do not believe anyone would consider a mag well area/location to be a forend.
    The forend is 6 inches wide.
    The pistol grip is 3 inches wide.
    I just got to put together last night
    I haven't had an opportunity to shoot it yet
