Default Stock Repair

My Son bought this gun and asked me to repair the stock.
Its a Mossberg model 342 .22 bolt action rifle made from 1957-1959.
I just thought I would show how I did the stock repair,
and blended it in with the rest of the stock.

First step was to cut out the rough sections, and smooth out the edges.

Next was to cut a replacement section of wood to fit the opening.

New section was glued and clamped in place

Wood was then sanded down to match the contours of the stock and given a coat of sealer.

Fold down front grip must have been a first in 1957 lol

Thanks for looking

Most excellent work on the Mossberg!

BTW, the first of the fold down foregrip was the Mossberg 152, back in 1948. I have been severely addicted to old Mossberg 22s for some years now.

But I can stop any time I want to.

Seriously, if you would be interested in stock repair for income, touch base with Victor or Cheryl Havlin at havlinsales.com. Not only are they very nice folks, but are the go-to people for anything Mossberg.
