Default Broken Infinity .22 stock

Hiya,

in januari my mate S. and i decided to take all our Korean airguns to the range.Some Career III 300 s, three Infinity .22 MK1 and Mk2, the 201 and the LBC Infinity 9 mm.


At some point S. came to me. 'I dropped yer gun Roel and the the stock broke.' S. is a great guy, and can`t get angry with him. Why should i? He`s not the kinda guy that breaks stocks for fun.



Dayum! A broken stock for an Infinity is kinda hard to get by. When i asked Joost, the Dutch Shinsung importer he flushed all my hope down the drain. Forget it Roel. No way there`s a stock available over there.



Shite!





I mailed lotsa stock repairmen over the world. Hardly anyone of `em reacted. They don`t seem to need work i suppose. Over here in the Netherlands there`s one great stock maker. van Breen from guns and gunstocks. He got the stock to repair it. It`s not cheap. Restoring the checkering and colouring the stock after it has been glued were options i didn`t do. Cost me too much money. So i decided to have the stock glued and no more than that. If needed i didn`t mind spray painting the stock black.

I was stunned when it got the stock back. Maybe i am easily stunned, dunno that, but i was.



The glue seems to have the same colour as the dark stripes on the stock. Lucky me. I don`t know how van Breen has done this but the resulsts are great.

Seemless and coloured.


It`s visible he did some sanding. Looks like some wear of a thumb or such...


A close up of the checkering. Nearly perfect!




A joyeus day having the gun on the track again. Here together with the Career III 300.


Best!

Hiya Dave,

to be honest me and the gun are a fairly reasonable team.


The gun was tied to an Aqua Environment regulator te keep the working pressure stabile. Shinsungs are underestimated. They`re accurate as f**k.

Best.
