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.

24 hr 2 part epoxyed together

used wood epoxy paste to fill in missing wood



part 2 coming it took an hour to get this far.lol

Part 2,

the oblong hole on top is were I drilled a hole 3/4 the way down into the stock and epoxyed a wood dowel in to it.

broken trigger guard

the finished product, not to happy with the finish but it's just going to be my garage gun for varmits.



Please feel free to tell me what I could have did different, you can't hurt my feelings thats how you learn. Thanks

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.
