    Ok! We have the same issue! I have a glenfield 75 with a cracked stock in the same area. It's a nail hanger rifle in the barn for varmints and such. I did put some elmers in there at one time. It was a $35 rifle bought when Gibsons closed and sold on clearance. Its actually a very accurate shooter in real life. Recently took it off the nail and did the annual cleaning and oiling even though a single shot had not been fired through it in the year previous. It just gathers dust, and It might be a fun project to actually repair the crack so it doesn't show so much.

    Did you see this one I fixed a few years ago? The stock was cracked but not yet broken in half like this one.

    I plan to drill pilot holes and run some brass screws across the breaks. Then clip the screw heads and sand them smooth with the stock.

    Oh by the way, it was missing the inner magazine tube also. Remember those ones I got from you? The small one is a perfect fit and it cycles perfectly by hand.

    Thanks!

    I did. My stock is cracked but not totally broken. Like I said, I put a little elmers glue on it, put it in a vise and clamped it until the glue dried.
    The fun part of this would be to lose the crack line and maybe refinish it like I did a Model 10 Win shotgun. Make it more into a walnut vs birch look?
    I'm looking for projects! lol
