    I really like the look of the Hogue forend but it says it's rubber and I'm imaging a squishy rubber bouncy ball feeling when I'm trying to grip and rack the slide. How does it feel?

    No they're not squishy or bouncy. Very comfortable non slip grip. I have several on rifles and one set on a shotgun(870). Only thing that bugs me is if you have on a baggy shirt the butt can catch on it. But so can other rubber recoil pads. So I got the 12" lop. Makes the HD shotgun much easire to handle.

    Much more *grippy* than squishy.

    You'll really notice this if you are already used do sliding it into and out of a sleeve or partially unzipped soft case. I've found that on a couple of my cases - depending upon the interior - I have to fully unzip and lay the shotgun inside rather than slide it. Doesn't really bother me as it's only doing what it's supposed to do.

    Todd.

    They have a thin rubbery layer over hard plastic. I'm not much of a fan. They tend to be heavy as well as being thick and chunky feeling.

    I have only owned one gun with the Hogue stock. It was a Rem 700 in 308. I sold it after putting 20-30 rounds through it in one session. My cheek was abraded from the recoil. You would need to put talcum powder on the stock for a range session. It would work fine for a shot out of the blind or maybe in a smaller caliber, but I shoot a lot more off of the bench than I do in the field. If a 308 does that I can't imagine what a 300WM would be like.
