That steel bolt you see in the remains of this Darne actually has wood screw threads, further down in the stock, that you cant see.
Attempting to bend a Darne results in pictures like these.
Dont do it.

The starting bid on that gun is usually the ending of a 12 ga. R10 without the stock damage. Nothing wrong with that stock that a half pint can of plastic wood and duct tape couldn't cure. wink Gil

Did someone attempt to bend it, or was it hit or dropped ? That wrist looks awful short to be bending.

Aint that the truth.

As to exactly how this one broke, I have no clue, nor does it really matter for our class today.
It is an attempt at a restock, which, astute Darne guys already know, because the full pistol grip thing doesnt happen on a factory Darne stock.The photo just very clearly illustrates what the end result of an attempt at bending would be.

That Blacker guy in England could have made Geos Boss the talk of the town.

Just sayin.

Ted, any idea if Charlins have the same type of bolt? Thanks!

They do not.

That said, I am always very hesitant to bend a stock that is difficult to replace. A Charlin is right there with a Darne, in that regard.

Thanks. Sorry to hear that Charlins are tough to restock, too. I know of one that needs new wood.
