Re: 12 Ga. Field Grade, manf. 1903, split stock
Jerry and Drew are correct; do not allow those guys to perform such a crude repair on your stock. I don't believe your shells were the issue; the wood cracked because it's 118 years old, has likely shrunk just a bit and is brittle from age. Have it properly repaired by someone like Jerry; the repair will be invisible, and will last for a lifetime.
