Many shooters at some time will either damage their stocks or cause wear and tear through normal usage, after all stocks and forends are essentially just tool handles and the only way to keep them pristine is to never use them. Replacing a stock off the shelf from a manufacturer can be very expensive and having one made to order even more so. It’s usually possible to repair broken and cracked stocks using modern adhesives along with reinforcement pins and inlays.

At GSR we use boiled linseed oil for the majority of our finishes. This is applied in thin coats, usually one per day, until the required finish is achieved. We then allow the oil to cure before finishing off with a fine film of gunstock wax. This produces a durable finish that enhances the woodwork whilst protecting it from the rigours of use.
