I have a 20 gauge Parker VH SN 178454 that I picked up at Cabelas a number of years ago cheap. I knew I had some issues with the stock but finally got around to pulling it off to see the extent of damage. Here are the pictures of what I am dealing, thoughts?

If I add the dislodged piece of wood back into the stock, this is what it looks like

That can all be repaired by a good stock man. I do my own but others will be along to recommend smiths that they have used.

Send it to one of the stock repair specialists, they can work wonders with repairs like yours. I use this guy <http://www.stockfixrs.com/>, but there are a number of them out there, some who post regularly here on Doublegun...Geo

That's not too bad. On my personal PH, which was an incredibly good deal but was in low condition, the Head was in six pieces. It was a complex puzzle, taking lots of epoxy, a Dremel, and seven brass pins made from thin brass screws with their heads clipped off. You can't tell it was repaired. Time consuming, but a nice sense of accomplishment afterwards.

Regards
Ken

That repair should be a piece of cake for a professional stock man. Take a look at what was done to my Lang under lever. The gun was headed for the "probably to never finish" pile until Chris Dawe, (forum member Newfie) said he would tackle it as a challenge. Couldn't ask for better. Maybe Chris will chime in about your stock.

agree with the above - that one (assuming the wood in not punky)would be an easy one for an experienced repair guy

Very fixable. The cracks are clean and you have the pieces. And no one has stuck a bolt throigh the head yet. So if done right, the repair will be completely hidden inside the head.

The head would be expoxy glued back together tightly and a staple installed in the front of thenhead to reinforce. And bedding the frame is not a bad idea on top of that.
