First a bit of history. Guess more than a few months ago I traded parts for a a Benji Trail airgun. I went over the guns internals, re-did what the previous owner attempted. Sent it off to my dad for his 81yr old neighbor for disposing of nuisance birds that had been chasing the song birds off all summer. Got it back a few weeks later. Broken stock after less than 2 dozen shots. Needless to say sent off a replacement.

So now comes a slide show of what was done to fix the stock versus a complete replacement.

Final pics in a day or so once the stock has dried with its last coat of oil rub.

Enjoy.

If I were you, I'd repair it. If it were I, you'd repair it. Guess you made the best choice in repairing it :lol:

Nice work! The rest is just icing, so serve it up! 8)

OK, I don't know why, but the fact that you were drilling the stock in a really nice mill made me laugh. Coolant flow seems a little low though...

Hmm, you sure have a very nice looking shop - I'm envious.

Wood came up nice - what did you use? It looks to me like you took a third option: throw it away, repair it, or make it 10x better than new!

There are two kinds of people. Those that require an item to function beautifully, and those that want an item to look beautifully. I think you accomplished both. Good job.

good job on the repair Kim just one question could you have not gone up from the bottom of the grip instead and avoided the little eye sore from the top :?

Thx for the comments. Might have been a turd of gun and stock to begin with....But its a damn fine lookin and operating turd now.....lol

I used a polymer glue made by Gorila. First time trying it. Tskes stain doesnt like oil, hence seeing the break lines. Cracks and break were spread apart with tooth picks and glue added into the voids. Used nothing more then 3 wraps of good ole masking tape for clamping pressure.
As seen drilled the pistol grip hole to 3/8" yes upon the mill. Coolant line was compressed air at about 15 psi. Shop-vac hose in the stock slurped up the dust. Other small holes were drilled into the cracked portions. Tooth picks used for doweling upon those. (forgot about pics for that) Pistol grip dowel was a piece of birch. All glued in with Timberline carpentry wood glue. Then counter drilled for an aluminum plug. Reason for that upon final pics.
Stock was first sanded down with some 180grit to remove its previous. Then sanded with 220, then a quick sand with 400 to clean any sanding marks.
Stock was then water washed, just a spray bottle and hand rubbed till it was starting to dry. Washed once more and hand rubbed till dry. Light spray of water few hrs later and hand rubbed in the Timber Line wood filler. About size of a quarter forms a thin cream upon the stock. Hand rubbed until it was dry like saw dust upon stock and hands. Re mist with water re rub till dry.
After about 3 hrs dry time. Mixed 1 tsp Smoked Ebony liquid dye/ stain. 1 tsp mineral spirits and 1 tsp double boiled linseed oil. Hand rub into stock until it appears dry.
After a few to over night dry time. Buffed down with a heavy cotton rag from an old sweat shirt.
Mixed up 1 tsp linsed oil, about 5 drops of True Oil, and 5 drops of Hi Speed linseed oil finish. This combination is very oily to the feel. Hand rub into the stock until everything is shiny wet. Let sit for the day. Hand rubbing accordingly to keep wood wet looking. Until all mixture is gone. Let dry for a day. Buffed down with a piece of leather. Real stuff. I use a piece of tanned doe skin. Its seen a many a stocks. Let sit for a few hours some place warm but not hot. See if any oil appears upon surface. Just rub it back in if it does.

Will finish a bit later with the last of the pics and gun re assembled.

Looks great! Was the metal originally like that or did you polish it up?

Metal was that colour tone. I just gave it a good cleaning when I first recieved it.

Time upon the stock refurb was under 8hrs but stretched out over about 5 days.

Thx for the comments.
