Is that a M88/Hunter or a Petra? Looks like a 30-06
I have never noticed the slant cut at the front of the receiver / back of the handguard before. Also a non-typical magazine catch for sure. The top cover retaining screws are also absent. Odd side mount. I wonder if this is an early version and what the serial # is. Very interesting rifle indeed!
It will likely be very hard to find a handguard like that one pictured.
If you need a regular square cut front hand guard, try on Canadian Gun Nutz in the Equipment Exchange sub forum. It takes some time to be allowed in that forum but there will be folks with Hunter handguards there. Make sure you specify .222/.223/.243/.308 style or 30-06 style as they are different in how they mount.
Valmets are sweet
