The forearm on this rifle is wrapped in cork. The cork could have had some pine tar applied at one time in the past. Thanks for the info.

Thanks for sharing this info! It will help. I have the dies, brass and I'm waiting on the the bullets to arrive. I guess Graf and sons has been slammed with orders and it is taking longer to ship items now.
