I used the smallest Picatinny rail possible and placed it as forward as I could. This allows as much room for my support hand. I cut the fastener anchors into smaller circles with diagonal cutters. The sharp edges cut into the counter sinked walls for grip and kept them from spinning.
Side note, to keep the rail centered:
I placed just the forend upside down on a (level) bench then put the rail where you want it…now rest a small level on the rail. Move it such that it is true with the level (side to side) and silver sharpie the hole locations. This is to ensure the rail is on the bottom and not off to the side any once mounted. The rail I had is not flat on the furniture side but concave, so I knew it wouldn’t be twisted in that manner.
