I now have a double barrel shotgun that hasnt been put together for a while because of a broken stock. The only marks I can find for a brand are the words "Made in Brazil for f i e." I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to get a stock for this, whether it is made for the gun, or a name brand stock that will fit it instead.
I've asked my local gunshop and all they told me was I would probably have to have one custom fit for it. I can post pictures of the gun and stock if needed. Any help would be appreciated.

The stock has that little notch. I'm not sure if any name brand stock would fit, which would be my preferred method of fixing the problem.

I'm thinking pictures of any/all markings on the gun would be more helpful

Numrich (e-gunparts) lists three series of FIE doubles. You could call them and try to figure out if yours is BR2, 7, or 8 and see if they have a stock. As the gun is not collectible, I would take the stock to a good gunsmith and get him to fit a piece of wood and try to closely match the finish. With luck and skill it would be almost invisible.

Thanks very much. I am not worried about the look at all as its just an old generic gun, I just want it to be all good to fire.

That stock might be repairable by inletting a piece of wood and using a good glue. But warning, if you decide to have a stock made, take your heart meds before asking for an estimate. If a stock has to be made from a blank, it will cost about what the gun is worth. That is likely why whoever owned the gun originally didn't have one made.
