I have a .22 rifle that I have had for some time & it has a cracked stock.
What is the best way to repair the stock , as of now I just taped it.
It is one of my favorite pinkers & I don't want to get rid of it because of a cracked stock . :(
thanks.

It all depends on where the crack is and how bad it is. Some cracks need to be drilled and reenforced with a rod, others just need the clean crack glued and clamped.

Can you post a photo of the crack so that an assessment of the best repair would be easier for us?

thanks , I will get a pic up tonight.
It is at the thin part of the stock ,more like a splinter than break if that helps any.

Then by all means, don't. Most of the cracked or damaged stocks that I have seen, can be repaired. I have even repaired ones that had wood missing. Oh, you will see most repairs but the repaired area is stronger than the rest of the stock. You have done the right thing by taping as you have stabilized the area until you can make the permanent repairs.


Be Safe !!!

Have you checked into replacing the stock? What brand is the rifle?

One thing in you favor is that fact that it's a .22

There is no recoil to worry about.
