    Stevens 311 cracked stock

    Picked up a Stevens 311 Series H today for a steal but the stock is cracked. The rest of the gun is just dandy. So i am going to get this fixed. How would some of you pursue this? Bit of info on the gun, It is 12 gauge with 30 inch barrels and 3 inch chambers. Made in Westfield, Mass. Serial number is 7 characters long beginning with a "C" Not a circled C like some of the descriptions say. This is part of the serial number. From what i can gather this is from the late 1970s. not sure what the stock material is but it is very light. I am guessing maple. All is original with no mods. Full choke on one side and modified on the other. No wear on the hinge or latches. Looks like a very lightly used gun. I am hoping to get it back in working order and use it as a trunk gun.

    The stock might be Birch wood. You might be able to get a replacement stock from Gun Parts Corp.

    What a bother. Hope you can find or make a decent stock for it. Double barrel shotguns are essential for upland bird (quail, pheasant, partridge, etc) hunting.

    I tried to push the envelope, but found that it was stationery.

    Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows? They're making head lines!

    Update to this issue. My local gunsmith fixed the stock for $30. He put two brass pins and epoxied it. Was such a tiny issue i thought he wasn't even going to charge me. I had to almost force him to take the money. I have since fired 4 boxes of Imperial number 5 though it with no sign of it breaking again. This shot gun has been the end of close to 100 pidgins and crows. It is spot on.
