Seeking a spare stock
QI have a Classic Doubles M90 which had a bad stock crack repaired quite a few years ago. The repair has now started to give way, and I really need a new stock. I can’t find one for sale anywhere, so can you help?
Mike says: The M90 was made in Italy by Marocchi, and it hasn’t been available for some years. One answer would be to have a new stock made by hand, but this would cost more than the gun is worth.
Before committing yourself to any expensive course of action, I would ask a stocker if the woodwork can be repaired again. I don’t know how long ago the original damage was repaired, but there could well have been advances in adhesives and techniques since then. It’s worth a try.
Stocks can be made by hand, but they probably cost more than an old gun’s worth
