Help identify a forend

I have this long, heavy beavertail forend from likely a prone position rifle. Can anyone identify what this could be for?

The large screw head makes me think British. Poor inletting on the palm rest hanger so that can't be factory. Maybe for one of the small BSA Martinis?

Also thinking BSA 22 rf Martinis, that big screw is almost a slam dunk way of identifying it. Frank

The palm rest hanger looks like it could be from a Remington 40X.

99 % certain it's from a BSA Martini International.Had a few over the years and recognize the details.Most likely a Mk1 or Mk2 before they floated the barrel on the Mk3.
