Hi everyone,
I am in the process of refinishing my father in law's AYA sidelock and I have just noted that my attempt to glue a crack behind the action did not hold I suspect becase of penetrated gunoil. I also noted that the area surrounding the action(sideplates) is also fouled with gunoil and the TRU-OIL does not seem to stay on.
On Dan May's pics posted by Drew Hause I noticed that gunoil can be removed by acetone.
Can anyone offer any advice as to how I should proceed, short of a setup by a professional such Dan May or Doug Carpenter et Al.
Any help would be appreciated.

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


My 76 year old friend corrected me on my math ... Gun is 76 years old, back to school for me I guess.

David D,

You should just use the math they teach today, there is no wrong answer. It can be a color if you want it to be. Lol

Nicola,

I have not yet used acetone. I think you have to soak it in it for it to work. But it can also do damage, or so I've read.

What kind of adhesive did you use?

Doug

Making the repair properly must include diagnosing why the crack occurred in the first place.

Often times the receiver is no longer making full contact with the stock.

So in my project I pictured above there were steps you didn't see. In addition to inserting the staple as reinforcement I cleaned up all the inletting and glassed the receiver to the stock to ensure full contact.

Acraglass or a CA glue might yield better results depending on the crack.

Since you are refinishing the stock you could try getting some of the oils out of the wood either with the acetone trick ( which I can't really help with, sorry) or by using a whiteing material to try to leach it out.

Either way once you start saturating the stock with things it may swell and require some inletting work to get everything to fit again.

If you have specific questions you could feel free to email me and I will try to help.

Thanks, Doug

I had a nice conversation with Doug Carpenter yesterday wrt the repair of my broken stock. I've decided to ship the stock to Doug so he can inspect the damage and propose a repair plan. I'll provide an update once Doug has completed his inspection.

Regards, Dave

Ok, I'm way behind on an update to the repair of my Fox stock ... I shipped the gun to Doug Carpenter back in october 2012 and had it back all repaired in about 3 weeks. The repair was beautifully done and you would never know the stock was repaired! Doug was a pleasure to work with and I will certainly use his services again.

Here are a few pictures of Doug's workmanship ...

I guess that's one way to get back on schedule ... Fixed the date, 2013 -> 2012

That was a close one David. You almost told people about my time machine. :)

Thanks for the props.
