Seek­ing a spare stock

Sporting Gun - - SHOOTING ANSWERS -

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
