Hello. I have a shotgun stock given to me by a family member that appears to be a double barrel. It has the trigger guard with very nice engravings. It has the number 8847 engraved on it as well. Also has the letters C.H.P. Any help identifying it would be very appreciated! Thanks

If you could upload pictures it would be greatly helpful. Close ups of the letters and stamping would be great.

Welcome to SGW ! ! {hs#

The only "CHP" I'm acquainted with is the California Highway Patrol, so maybe a take-off ? ?

With pictures, someone here will most likely be able to ID it. Without pictures its nearly certain that they won't.

It appears to be a Monte Carlo stock for a Regular frame L.C. Smith Monogram grade.
Where is the 'CHP'? Engraved on a stock oval? The trigger guard?
Where is the 8847? On the trigger guard? That would fit a 1919 DOM if from a Monogram.

It may be offered for sale on the LCSCA site (guns cannot be offered except on the members forum) but I suspect a prospective buyer would want to personally examine the stock before purchase to confirm originality

The stock you have is very expensive, and is from/for a rare high grade double shotgun - an L.C. Smith A2 , according to the checkering pattern.

Here's pics of an A2 : https://www.icollector.com/Ultra-Rare-L ... _i24628324

The C.H.P. is on the trigger guard. (Bottom of loop). The 8847 is on the guard also, but back towards the grip cap. I removed the guard and 8847 is also on inside of guard and engraved in the wood underneath the guard.

8847 could be a 1902 A2.

A Research Letter should confirm the grade, and might have the identity of CHP

Could you post an IN FOCUS end on close up of the head of the stock.

There may be wood missing

Any ideas what it would be worth? Or how hard it would be to buy parts to complete it?

Thank you, and unfortunately it appears likely that it is the original stock which was replaced after the wood breaking at the head of the stock. Seems odd that the trigger guard was not used for the replacement stock, unless the replacement was a straight grip stock.
It is possible that an expert like Dennis Earl Smith (and others) could repair the stock.
It's value is as a replacement stock that someone might want to use, but the needed repair may not be doable.

How critical is the missing wood? What affect will it have? Thank you to everyone who took their time to reply and help me find out the details. I was thinking it was a Charles parker, due to the c.h.p. LOL.. I appreciate your help!
