I never know what to call that other than a forearm flair.

Its a Schnabel....definition:

"Schnabel - Stock detail, typical of German and Austrian rifles, where the forend tip flares out to an enlarged knob."

Schnabel is German for bill, like a duck bill I figure, anyways here is a good reference site. Many gun terms are defined here, from my favorites file to yours! :)

It is called the "best looking stock accent of all time."
