    Looked at a Krieghoff 32 today and saw a hairline crack in the forarm on both sides by the receiver running lengthwise. About 1/4 inch long. How big a deal would this be and is it a easy fix? Any ideas? Price was right on it but the crack scares me.

    How badly oil filled is the wood? The ability of any patch material to "hold" will be limited by oil migration.

    I have had good luck by gouging a line perpindicular to the crack on the inside, laying a small diameter brass screw in the gouge and filling with epoxy. Too, you can lay a layer of thin fiberglass cloth over the crack and coating it with epoxy.-Jerald

    I wouldn't worry about a 1/4 inch long crack unless it starts to grow. HMB

    A proper cosmetically invisible repair is possible but the stock will need to be refinished I charge around $100-150 for a forend repair and refinish. $250 total with a complete refinish butstock and forend.
