I could not successfully load a pic from a host site so I cheated and made a listing. I sell enough so I don't feel I'm abusing anything.

Anyway it was in my late dad's stuff Overall length is around 17 1/2

That's a tough one! Kinda' has a look of a Browning BAR type rifle forearm. Those guns were chambered in large calibers. But your forearm is not an exact match to the "picture books" I'm looking at.

BAR was my first thought too, but they attach to the barrel with a screw from the bottom. I've looked at about every single shot forearm I can think of, and can't find any with that long bolt that would attach it to the receiver.
The long recess on the bottom rear, says it's probably a clip fed of some kind, but I'll be damned if I can find what one.
If and when you find out, do post it.

Well what took you so long?
A German name was in the back of my head, so I searched all the HK rifles, and then started on the Merkel rifles. Found the Merkel Helix and came back here to post it. Sauer, should have figured.
