This antique shotgun stock came to us in pieces. It was broken thru at the wrist , missing several pieces of wood and badly weather damaged. Not only is it back in one piece.It is stronge and usable thanks to several carefully placed steel pins. It is beautiful as you can see,and it is all original.

'94 Winchester

Doug spent about as much time & careful effort taking this poor thing which has seen a rough life apart as he did putting it back together.11 finishing nails&some kind of brownish crazy tough glue was all that held this basket case together when 1st recieved .As you can see in the photo the wood was broken in 3 places on this side alone,and while they were held in place it was not structurely sound to say the least.Getting those nails out of that super hard wood without doing more damage was quite a task in itself.A magnificent piece of wood was to be given new life.

Mule Ear

This muzzloader required reinletting of intricate silver inlays in order to keep them perfectly even with the surface of the wood as it was necessary to sand the wood. We try very hard to make every repair and refinish come out as good as possible.

Holland and Holland

This is a fine H & H double that we received for repair and refinishing.  It was almost black and oil soaked.  cracks were hardly noticable . This is a good example of how cracks can be hidden by an accumulateion of oil and dirt.    The  removal of dirt, oil, and finish, made these 5 cracks were very evident.  One photo shows how it was  repaired  with several threaded steel pins  set into the face of the stock with epoxy .  Great care was taken to keep the integrity of the serial number,and to barely miss the screws that hold the sidelocks together.

Attention to detail & with our refinishing technique we were able to hide the repair very well , and the owner has there family heirloom back in one piece.

Parker Shotgun

This is a very fancy top grade Parker shotgun and belonged to a grandfather who had used it most of his life and it was in good working condition.  His son "borrowed it"  to go pheasant hunting.  When he was leaving, he placed the gun on top of his truck cab and forgot about it and drove off.  A short distance away he remembered it and backed up to retrieve it.  In so doing he ran over it and smashed the stock very badly.

When we received it I notified him that a critical piece of metal and wood were messing. He returned to the site and found the pieces and sent them to us. 

He was very happy and relieved to return the gun to his grandfathers cabinet before it was missed, and with a much prettier stock. The cost of this repair was only about  20% of a new stock.

LC Smith

This fine old gun had been in the same family for several generations.  IT is fully engraved and top quality.  The original owner was a top trap shooter. It had been badly broken many years ago and kept together with layers of black tape, but not usable.  We received it with several pieces missing and 5-6 loose pieces,  all almost black in color and no visable fancy grain.

Now it is beautiful, fully usable, and quite valuable, since we were able to retain the beautiful original wood stock with appropriate serial numbers on it.  Cost of this repair was about 20% of a new replacement, and the retained value of the gun is considerably higher than with a replacement stock.

Belgian Double Shotgun

This is a beautiful  very high quality Belgian double shotgun.  In excellant condition, except that it has been broken completely thru the wrist, and repaired a couple of times, including installation of a 3/8" dia. steel rod in the center.  None were successful, and it was not usable. We were able to make a repair that  is not detectable, increasing the value of the gun at least 4 times the cost of the repair.  It is now fully usable.

Scott Sharps Pistol Grip

This is an original long range Sharps rifle, with pistol grip, sights, etc. The owner bought it at a gun show , badly broken with some large wood splinters  missing for about $5000.   When we received it the stock was almost  black, and the wrist area was wrapped in tape.  The owner wanted us to repair it, but wanted to do the finishing himself. When finished, it was appraised at  $18,000.00. The repair cost about 20% of the cost of a new replacement stock, and the gun retained much more of its value since it stil; has the original stock with serial number. See other photos for details of damage.
