I was always under the impression that if the wood fibers were broken as these are that steaming won't help? Looks like a nice job on that particular stock.

I have worked on hundreds of stocks and never once got a walnut stock that badly damaged to steam out. Don't know what you did but you need to get in the stock business if you can do that

I took that stock with no guarantees and put a lot of time and effort into that one as it was highly tiger striped and worth saving. I had a pretty good flow of stocks coming through my shop for like 3 years, moved up a couple levels with my real job and pretty much shut it down as I just didn't have the extra time to commit to it. I only do a few a year now for local friends, I may get back into it when I retire again in 3 years.

Most of this will clean up and the stamp will look better once it is cleaned a little and oiled. The big problem is shown in the first picture, bad gouge on the right side. Anyone have any idea how to proceed to attempt a repair of this spot? Wood filler comes to mind but it wouldn't look right I don't think. Thanks for any ideas. Think it still was an ok deal as the rear handguard appears to be the early one w/o the clearance cut and the cracks should be no problem to fix.
I have one due to arrive this Friday. Regardless of what it looks like I'll post a few pics

Good luck with what you get. I think I did really ok, was hesitant after the fiasco with the op rods but thought if it has a decent GAW stamp would give it a try. I am thinking the rear handguard which is an early style that appears to not have had the op rod cut and the front handguard are maybe worth $40 or so, maybe a little more. The stock had a really good ferrule attached, so what, another $20 or so? Total price with shipping was $95 so I think it was ok. Just wondering how to make the big gouge look a little better. These cartouched stocks are getting harder to find and more expensive even for the more common ones like the GAW.

Not a gouge but pressed in. That very well may come up with steaming. Rick B

I guess is worth a shot, that is really the only bad spot. I just didn't think steam would work on that one. Other than that this is a pretty decent stock. Thanks for the info Rick.
