    I noticed a small scratch near the rear of the tang just opposite the safety on my Kolar, which turned out to be a crack. After talking to the folks at Racine it was decided to return the gun to them for a proper fix. The stock with receiver was sent on Thursday and was in their hands the following Monday. Work started on Tuesday with complete re-inletting and bedding, along with a pin and glass fix for the crack. While there, it was decided to replace the somewhat worn Decelerator pad, and do a PM on the trigger assembly and replace the springs; a D&C, if you will.

    I talked with them on Wednesday and was told it was done and would be shipped on Thursday. It was back in my hands this afternoon, Wednesday, for a turn around time of two weeks from the time it hit the UPS drop off, ten of those days were in shipment. That's good service from a first class company. I'm very happy with my choice in the selection of Kolar and will recommend Kolar to anyone who's looking for a great gun and company backing it up.

    Border Bandit? Is that you, Mike ol' pal? And if it isn't, that's a hell of a coincidence, meaning the tiny crack at the tang.

    Anyway, glad they fixed it for you.

    Yeah, that's me, Phil. Not to mention, the gun looks a lot like that other guy's, huh?

    I sure am happy with the folks at Kolar, see U and (S)Marge this afternoon....best...mike

    How old was the gun at the time the crack was discovered? Was there any discussion of replacing the stock on warranty instead of repairing it?

    Most new gun warranties do not cover the wood. When I owned my Kolar they told me that they do not cover the wood on there guns so that is probably why the stock was fixed and not replaced.

    I doubt you'll find any company that warranties wood. I know Beretta will not, after a crack developed in the forend of my dads 682.

    Yeah, but this stock was 2 weeks old when the crack was discovered.

    Browning warranties the wood on their Cynergy. I know, I had my stock replaced because of a similar crack. The fix wasn't as fast as this though; it took 20 days.

    Here's the crack on my stock:
