There have been threads regarding some shops that do “economy stocks” for doibles. Some guys here swear by them and some swear at them.
A buddy has his grandfathers Ithaca 12 ga. Double grade 2, and the stock is broken. He wAnts to use it again. Not going to spend 3-4K on a stock job.

Seems i remeber several contributors talking about a couple of shops that do basic stocking for 700-1000. The gist was you wait forever and not reliable. (Sounds like. A recipe for success!!)
But some of the work posted didnt look bad.

I remember Macon Gunstocks was one of the sources. any feedback

Any suggestions?

Chris Dawe in Seal Cove, Newfoundland, does excellent work at a reasonable price. I sent him Macon wood and was most pleased with what came back in good time.

Like I said, he doesn't want to spend what a custom stocker gets to do a boxlock. he wants Fajen level stocking.

Good evening Brian; speaking as the last Custom Shop Supervisor of Fajen, Inc.,those days have past. The model established by Rheinhart Fajen has passed into history and those who picked up the torch no long carry it. Wenig's Custom Shop and Show Me Gunstocks were the last. Boyd's Gunstocks used to do it....no longer I am told. The labor cost and material cost have jumped in the past 20 years and make your quest difficult. I will not say impossible because I have learned....never say never. Most young stockmakers are now using CNC machines and need to pay the light bill to run them. The older members of the fraternity are letting go of their chisels....for many reasons.

Shoot me a few pictures of the broken stock and I will see if it may be mended. Information is still free. My email address is: thestockdr@hotmail.com

Brian,
There are people that can repair your friends stock, so you can't see the break. This would be cheaper, and it would still be the original stock.

Agreed; repair, if at all possible, in much better than a new stock.

Cheers,
Jani
