Default cracked stock

hey guys,
I when shooting with a Marlin .22 tube fed rim fire the other day, and when i took it out of the case i noticed the stock was cracked real bad right below the trigger and that it causes the stock to flex. also the barrel and action slide around on the stock. any suggestions for repair.

Sounds like it is time for a new stock. If you do decide to get it repaired ask your gunsmith if he knows someone in your area that he would recommend to do the job. Get it done professionally. Over the years I have seen quite a few good guns screwed up by do it yourself repairs.

Default stock crack

you can buy a stock or repair what you have it all depends on what you want to spend, some guns are worth the new stock or have a gunsmith repair it, some are not worth it. if you decide to fix it your self it is not hard,
some eproxe [lows or Home depo] some painters tape or electrial tape will work .. if the stock is real bad you might need a C clamp or too, send me a PM if you want more info. the repair is not hard to do your self

Paging Cane.

I think Cane did a stock repair on a little rimfire build he did a few months back.

15 minutes later.

Found it here is how out great mod of the ban hammer fixed his stock.

I have seen quite a few guns that people have repaired the cracked stock on over the years. The guns are fine for a few years but the stock eventually cracks again somewhere else. The problem, the way I see it, is that most gun owners do a real good job of taking care of the metal parts of their guns and just wipe off the stock now and then. They store them in a gun safe with something to keep the humidity down and eventually the wood dries out and cracks. A good oil finish on a stock that is well taken care of very seldom cracks. If I come across a gun with a cracked stock I always replace it. This is just the view of an old man that has been shooting for over 60 years.

My advice is to take it to a qualified gunsmith.
But if you want to save some money and do it yourself, you need to get some AcraGlas from Brownells. It's a 2 part epoxy specially designed for glass bedding and stock repair.

Yep, that's the weak spot. Your gun has received some form of lateral pressure. Maybe some weight placed on it during transport or some one leaned against it while it was standing upright. It doesn't take much for these little rimfires.

I repaired my Marlin 60 because it has been mine from day one in 1967.

I wanted to keep it's stock parts together and passed on the poly stock replacement. (Plus the stock was worth more than the gun's action.)

The repair will bring the stock back to it's origin strength or even better but will do little for the aesthetics. If it is to be a utility rifle with no ego that will work fine. If however, your ego will suffer with a scar on the old warrior you have two choices; repair and paint or restock.
