I have a 20 ga LC featherweight that was built in 1922. The stock has cracked behind the sideplate, fairly common. It is also split alont the top and the two cracks split the stock into a 3/4 and 1/4 section, though it is not cracked so bad that it sepatated totaly. In any case, it is oil soaked. Who has had a stock like this repaired? Any thoughts on a good stock man who could fix this? What kind of $ would be fair? IS this beyond "do it your self?"

Thanks, John O

Any stock can be repaired, especially if all the pieces are there. Try Keith Kearcher in Oregon.. Expect to pay several hundred dollars for any good smith to do the work. I can be a do-it-yourself project, one of the most difficult parts for a tyro is reassembling the top lever post.. Bushrod

One of the best stock makers in the country is Jim Greenwood of Augusta Kansas 316 775 0161. If you send him photos of the gun stock he can advise you regarding restoration or new stock.
