    It's hard to tell the extent of the damage. Is it just on the surface or does it go further in?


    While I appreciate the mention, I'm not sure I want to get into doing this for hire. It's one thing to do your own gun, but when doing it for someone else and you mess up, that's a whole world of liabilities I don't want to deal with. Not to mention the labor involved is usually worth more than what most people are willing to pay.

    Likely more than the gun is worth for a job that shows zero issues after the repair.

    Exactly. Many of my $100 rifles have well over $200 worth of labor in them. It's one thing as a hobby, it's entirely different as a profession.

    Just the surface as far as I can tell I took it off and didn't see a crack inside where tang inlets into stock

    Think I would just squirt (wick) some thin CA (superglue) into the crack and be done with it. If I was ambitious I might cover it with some plastic wrap (won't stick to the glue) and try to press the piece back down flush. Might need a little cleaning up but should work.
