    Hi guys this is the first time I have posted on this site but have been an avid reader for a couple of months. My father has an old Stevens SxS Model 5100 and it is his baby, but its old and beat up and has a cracked stock. What I would like to do is send it out and get a new stock put on it so it can look as good as it did when he first got it. Do you have any suggestions on where I could send it

    Clem- A new stock will involve an expense that might be higher than you are expecting. The existing stock and forearm can be repaired and refinished to look close to a new stock.

    Yes guys I do realize the cost associated with getting a custom stock. I also fully agree with you in it not being worth it, but my Dad is a little obsessed with the gun it is the only gun he has ever owned in his 40years of shooting. So I know it is going to be expensive but I am still going to look into it.

    I have gotten several gun stocks from Numerich Gun Parts and they were a lot cheaper than anyone else that I found. Maybe you would like to finish them yourself to make it even more special. Jackie B.

    Thank you Big Dave that is perfect only question is on the page that you linked it states non-stepped 5100. Do you know what that means and is there a way I can check for it on my fathers gun.

    I'm sorry but I do not know, but while searching for the answer, I found another site with a better price, looks like it also fits the 311. I'm sure they can answer your question. They show two series.

    Tom Smith in Bowling Green, Ohio can usually pin the cracked stock and then refinished it.

    big dave good sight for some decent priced semi inletted stocks, also try above. I bought a stock for a older savage fit to receiver needed a little fitting. don't count out local furniture restorer/refinisher. We had a local guy years ago repair a split stock refinshed it, looked awesome, he managed to retain some of its original worn look, but looked nice. Wenig is an option also. You could also get your current stock duplicated. I almost went this route with a older winchester 30/30. I really liked how the stock fit me and the scope. took a digger coming down a hill and did a # on it. http://www.gunstockduplicating.com/duplication.html Try these guys. I never got around to doing it. I sold the gun to my brother and he bought a used stock at a gun show. They seemed to be well knowing when I called. Told me just send all the pieces.
