Need help identifying this stock/forearm set:

It's a long story, but I acquired this stock & forearm in a truckload of gun parts and re-loading equipment. I think this is a Remington 740 or 742 custom stock set but I am not sure.
Any help is appreciated:

It could be German and with the HK on the stock could be Hekler and Koch.

The "HK" are the initials of the previous owner. Herman was a precision shooter & re-loader.

The forearm is distinctive having that metal cap on the end, but the both stock and forearm might be custom made which might cloud it's identity a bit.

If you know the family, ask if they have any photos of him shooting...or same at his shooting club.

His farm was his private range & Herman went to the big shooting range in the sky. House is sold, family all out of state. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who actually shot with him, so I'm stumped.

I have a 740 and that looks like it'd fit.

The original forearm was split and the stock was rough so I put a Bell & Carlson Kevlar Stock and forearm on it a few decades ago.

It's fugly but functional.

That stock and forearm looks pretty nice.

NHA, thanks...that's what I'm going to list it as.

Man, I think I'm in some obscurity vortex. Went into my LGS today and he had a Dbl Barrel 16Ga Charles Harvan Castillion grade shotgun. Never heard of one, price was decent, so I bought it........
