    Gentlemen:

    I own a high rib honest to goodness 90-T safe queen. There has never been a shell in the chamber nor has the trigger been pulled. I bought and assembled her in December of 1997. She has lived in my gun safe ever since.

    Here's the rub. There's a hairline crack in the forearm where it mates with the receiver. My concern is that when I eventually start shooting the gun, there's nothing to prevent the crack from spreading end to end.

    A competent wood guy should be able to handle this repair in his sleep. However, because this is a new and unfired gun, I'm fussy about who makes the repair.

    Top end stock professions seem like overkill. I'm not even sure they'll want to screw with a Mickey Mouse project like this. OTOH, I'm not interested in an amateur - no matter how talented.

    So... who has a recommendation for (or personal experience with) a competent wood repair person or shop?

    Thanks in advance.

    sissy

    Call Coles Gunsmithing and talk to them, I have seen 2 crack repairs that they did that were
    almost undetectible and have held up to a lot of shooting.

    What does it a "typical" hairline split in the forearm cost to repair?

    Phillip's Gunsmithing has fixed multiple cracks for me.
    Very reasonable, and the work was excellent.

    Doug Braker. Because he is a 90T pro and it cracked for a reason. Has it had the update?

    I have a low rib 90T I will trade you even-up for that damaged Hi-rib, no questions asked. A little crack in the stock doesn`t bother me a bit.

    Be careful with the Gorilla Glue? It will swell and ease out making a very strudy repair but unsighlty. I did it and it did LOL
