I Specialize in the Repair & Restoration of Gunstocks
Repair is my specialty, I can take your poor, tired, or
broken stock and give it new life.
LC Smiths have kept stock makers in business since the
turn of the last century, here are some pictures of a
nice 2E that once had a 7 piece butt stock, shown in
the first three pictures. The gun was restocked in 1927
to modern day drop, cast, etc, with a beautiful piece of
English Walnut it eventually cracked, then cracked
again, then just fell apart. When I dismantled it I had
seven pieces of wood in my hands, all the pieces were
oil soaked and the checkering was gone, the entire
stock was black. I repaired it 20 years ago and it is still
hunting with me every year.
For more information, email me, I am Stockmaker.com
and I will communicate more with you than any
gunsmith in your town. Let's work something out over
cyberspace using digital photos and email. I will give
you a preliminary estimate before I see the piece, and
a final quote after I have inspected the stock. You will
bet status updates, pictures, and be asked to
partisapte in the repair decision process.
Common breaks are at the toe line, and
usually right at the butt plate screw. Here
is a shotgun that not only broke the
wood but the buttplate as well.
To the right is a Westly Richards
that broke in half. If this
happens to you, it's not the end
of the world, it can be fixed.
