When I picked it up, the barrel was slightly scratched at the muzzle, but the stock came apart in 4 pieces! I can see how the grain turned from the grip forward & severely compromised its strength. Some Dark Elmer's exterior glue did well. Now I know better where to evaluate a stocks' grain; it ain't all about a beautiful finish, eh.
Ouch! Sorry about your stock.
