A G2 or Contender forend will fit your barrel, but you will need a Contender grip for the frame, the G2 grip will not fit your frame. If you're having a difficult time finding a grip, try ebay as they always have Contender parts.

I use the Pachmayr Grip and forearm for my Contenders. I like the gripper models with the finger groves. They are comfortable and absorb a lot of the recoil when I shoot the heavy loads in .223, 44 mag. and .444 marlin.

This is the link to the Pachmayr website. You can find them cheap online, so don't buy them from there.

Do you have a Bull barrel or an old Octagon barrel? You should be able to find either on ebay.
