If you had to glue a small section of stock back on a stocks what glue would you use ?
Have often used Brownells Acraglass for stock repairs. The bond ended up stonger than the surrounding wood, and I have never had a joint fail. Yours respectfully Mike Norris Brock and Norris Custom Rifles
Epoxy glue like Araldite would also do. I would prefer slow setting epoxy over rapid/quick/fast setting. Mix well.
Acra glass for me as well but I've used 8 hour epoxy before and it worked well.
Is this a wood stock Bob ?
If it is then a decent waterproof wood glue, even weatherproof PVA is stronger than the wood your glueing.
Its a small section of the fore stock on a browning just about 1/2" long and is a wedge shape.
I tried Pva glue and it held for about 3 hours and then after fitting the forfend it came of in my hand. I was thinking of trying a home made brass pin but the wood is very thin and it's not my gun,
So glue needs to be the option as the gun will be placed for sale when the work is done with this information in the sales description,
I don't need a lot so if anyone local has this in stock or willing to donate a blob of glued give me a shout please,
"Bob the borrower"...... A quid at B&Q?
Did your boss not glue King Tuts chin back on recently?

In that case I'll go get some, it's right at the end of the stock RD were it buts up against the action and as soon as I place the forfend back on you open the action a couple of times and it falls off, a right pain but just trying to fix it and then sell it on for a work mate who has had his ticket removed due to I'll health,
