    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! :)
