I'm looking for a gunsmith that can repair the stock on a recently purchased Fox SxS. Anywhere in the US is fine, just looking to get the job done right the first time.

If you've had a positive experience with someone, I'd appreciate hearing about it.

Thanks, Dave

Did my own stock repair. Goggle Gun Stock Makers and you should come up with several names.

Sorry but I had a senior moment. Normally when I mention a company, maker or dealer, I try to give their address, phone number or Email address .

I had a custom stock made by Doug Carpenter. He does all sorts of repairs, replications, and custom stocks. He's also a frequent poster here on shotgunworld. I would definitely recommend him.

Dan Printz in Yanceyville, N.C. did a fine stock repair for me on a Lefever SxS, at a reasonable price. His phone is 336-694-7244. I think he is a retired LEO.

I just had a Parker restocked by Jordan Smith at Orvis. He picked a nice blank and shaped it to my specifications. I thought the job was very good. I'm sure they could repair your stock as well. I would not classify the work as inexpensive though.

Get in touch with Jim Greenwood of Augusta, Kansas and consider having your gun fitted at the same time.

He is always busy, but he is worth the wait.

NO one is better than Greenwood.

Thank you for all of the replies ... I disassembled the gun today and the web is indeed cracked. I'm going to talk with a number of repair shops and I'll let you all know how I proceed with the repair.

I purchased this gun last week and I was aware that there was an issue with the stock, but the price was such that I could not walk away without the gun. Looking at the internal components of the gun, I'm very impressed with the condition, given that it is 66 years old.

I grew up in the Utica area and I'm pleased that I have such a beautiful Fox, broken stock and all.

Regards, Dave

Some of us are more than 66 years-old; and our friends think we may be somewhat cracked....but we seem to be holding together O.K.

Yes, some of us are a bit older. I'm pushing 80. Still manage to stumble around. I get up in the morning, read the obitutaries in the newspaper and if I am not there, go have breakfast.

Thanks to Clayshard2 and Steve!

I thought i'd post some pics of a similar repair.

This a simpson sxs that was had a cracked web in to places.

Image

I removed enough wood to insert a steel staple. for the dry fit I tied some dental floss so I could remove it before glue up.

Image

Here the main staple has been glassed in and a smaller staple is used to reinforce the crack on the right side.

Image

Here is is all glassed and cleaned up.
