Default Fixed my first broken stock

This is a Sprinfield 87A 22 semi. auto. I broke back in the early 80's could not find a stock so I figured I try to fix myself. I know it's not worth anything but now its atleast useable. I will put pics the best I can.

Trez I can not give any safe suggestion untill I try it on my own first to see if it works. This was my first stock repair and being a welder I personaly hate wood, but I'm trying.

Great job repairing that stock! In regards to the cracked or broken stock, you can drill tiny holes & use brass stock repair pins. They're available at brownells.com, or you can make your own. I recommend the brownells 1s because they're already ribbed to retain the epoxy. Be sure to coat them with epoxy so they won't ever move.

Thanks guy's! Stalkingbear, that sounds like a good way of doing a crack witch I have a friends gun he want's to have a cracked stock fixed. My question is how do you blend in the holes to the finish if you don't redo the whole stock? And even then you can see I couldn't blend that in you can see the repair.

What you can do is cut the brass repair pin a tad short-leaving it below the level. Then fill in the rest with wood chips that you have from drilling the hole and stain it as necessary.
