hairline crack on stock

Postby Linfdsay2117 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 10:24 am

This is an A grade about 1912 - noticed hairline crack - any idea how much this repair would cost? I am in Philly area - any referrals on a smith?

That crack is in a bad spot. I don't know anything about repairs. Jim

You can look up Craig Libhardt of Susquehanna Stockworks on the internet.

He is near Reading.

Looks repairable. But a good pro will know for sure

Craig does wonderful work. He repaired a Parker straight grip with a crack almost identical to yours. You'll never know it was there. 717-333-0202

Another great gunsmith in the area is Dewey Vicknair of Vicknair Restorations. 717-626-4226. He also made a cracked stock disappear.

Thank you for referrals - I exchanged emails with Craig and he was highly responsive and gave me a reasonable estimate - I have decided to go with someone in Philly - mainly because of the drive
