Well, this stock has a much more interesting history than your average airgun stock...


The stock was custom made for a fellow FT shooter, unfortunately it was destroyed in the mail and arrived in pieces, literally. Luckily the broken stock was replaced by the manufacturer, and this stock was sent to another FT shooter to try and repair. When this shooter sold his guns that fit the stock, he then passed it on to me, in a bag, as it came originally in the mail...Try not to cry :(

After assessing the damage I decided I needed to glue/strengthen the bigger parts by them self, before actually gluing things together...
Image
Image



All the metals bits were in good shape, doesn't mean they can't be "fixed" though :twisted:
Image



To my fellow machinists out there, you may know the term "musical clamps" ??? Well... :lol:
Image
Image
Image



Test fitting after gluing everything together, fits like a glove 8-) Although, there is one chunk of wood that was never recovered, I have something planned to fix that...
Image
Image



Sanding down the glue on the side with major fractures/cracks...
Image


I used a product made by JB Weld called "Kwik Wood", seems to be quite tough and has a hilarious name to boot :lol:
Image
Image



I decided to some of the badly damaged sections in a gloss black, as well as the stippled grip, so I taped off the rest of the gun...
Image
Image



The final product is coming soon, a few odds and ends left to wrap up to get it all together. I will say this, some will love it, others will hate it, but I guarantee you it is a true "one of a kind". I have never seen anything like it before, and since this stock can never be sold (as it was replaced/free) I decided to go out on a limb and have some fun with this one :twisted:


Cheers,

shame to see such a gorgeous stock destroyed so badly, but great job bringing it back to life, musical clamps indeed!

Got your work cutout there on that Ginb pattern.
The wood glue will be stronger than the wood. Looks like done it correct but limited by the amount of flex and whether pieces have gone back in original place without distortion. Good job but not really worth it unless for yourself.

It never fails to amaze me what happens on the shipping route.
I don't doubt good were well packed I have a claim going through now on similar where it would be impossible to break the item without destroying really flimsy other parts in same box. My belief is its the customs having a look inside and wilfully damaging products, goods delivered 10 weeks later which should have been there in 3 days. This has happened 4 times in last 8 months.

I think you had room for a few more clamps :)

Looks like it should come out fairly nice considering what happened to it.

Very nice put together.
Do consider using accuglassing the interior to tie all your prices together from the inletting and rigid up the stock some more.

No it is the Sono Kembang, a little heavier and really tough, which makes my job a little easier

Yes this will be for me to use, a repair like this would nearly double the cost of a already expensive stock, as you said; you would be better off re-buying, had the manufacturer not replaced it for the original customer...
