    How about laminating a patch onto the broken stock, to keep more of the original gun intact?

    Don't know if that would even interest you, it was just a thought.

    Congrats on getting it back!

    Yes I have a saw and I do appreciate the offer. I first need to get a hold of the thing and see what kind of cycling the action does, does it jam. whats the bore ect before I decide how I want to go.
    As I said before I have made one stock in my lifetime split out with the grain from an actual tree. It turned out beautifully but it was over a month and a half of full time tedious work. Said I would never do that again.
    This half stock would be easier but I don't think the quality of this particular model warrants that kind of painstaking work. I think I could find a nice used
    one refit and refinish it.

    I still possess every gun I ever bought but one.
    Junker Rem 1100 that was a rust bucket bought for a song and sold for the same for a few bucks profit. The owner saw me 30 years later and reminded me that he still owned it and it's still ugly. He's killed a truckload of dove and quail with it though.
    Hope your truck is a junker. LOL

    Congrats on the return of a family treasure. Maybe not in some eyes but I understand the sentimental value that comes with such a firearm. Restore it completely or just get it functioning again. Does not really matter it is the memories that it brings back everytime you have it in your hands or sitting in the corner when you take that glance at it for a second.
    So happy it made it's way back.

    I'm still confused about how to make a business out of trading tackle. Is there that much of a demand?
