Thread: Stock - rosewood forend loose

  1. #1

    Stock - rosewood forend loose

    The rosewood (I think...) tip on the forend of my stock has started to work loose.

    Before I ham-fistedly pour no more nails in there, what's the proper way to fix it?

    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    The glue must have been poor quality & it has given up doing its job. Simply adding new glue may fix it but could just as easily not work requiring fixing again.
    Best plan is to completely remove the tip, clean all old glue off back to clean wood on both mating faces, & re- fit it with a dowel. Epoxy adhesive it in place making sure it is perfectly aligned & refinish the stock.
    A bit of a pain & not a quick job, but it should never again give you trouble afterwards.

    Cheers Ian - that sounds within my diy limits (famous last words...), will give it a go.
    The rifle looks like its spent a long time stored and unused, so suspect its age related!

    Here you go Jim if you fancy doing it yourself. If you take your time and think about every action you'll be fine. Remember though, doing it yourself costs less money but much more time!

    This is the method I learnt.
    The diagram is rough but you get the idea. Use glue too, it will never come off.
