OK, I finally managed to get Photobucket to co-operate. Here's some photos of the new QB78S model, including comparisons of the synthetic stock to the wood version.
You can see the front stock screw hole in the underside of the synthetic stock. Here's the new, different barrel band that screw fits into.
Now that Chinese New Year is over and the factory is getting back to work, we'll be ordering some QB78S stocks as well as the matching barrel bands.

Is there an advantage to having a barrel band that's secured to the stock with a screw?
And, if so, is that barrel band available as a separate part so one could inlet it into a wood stock?
