    I think you have the Hick's Accurizer. It is a device that allows you to apply a controlled amount of pressure to the barrel via the forestock mount. The thinking is that by controlling the pressure at a specific point you control the barrel harmonics and can dial in a node that is condusive to higher accuracy.

    I don't have the accurizer but his is what I did to my #1.
