    Need some help

    Hi All...I joined up because I figured this would be the place to go... I have one of my Pops old Savage .22 long rifle serial number C276895... I'm just trying to hunt down information on this gun... I know it is probably 30+ years old and Dad gave it to me as my first gun... It got dropped when I was young and cracked the stock... I'm a wood worker and luthier (build guitars) so I was going to use this as practice for building custom gun stocks... I unfortunately lost Pops 8 years ago this October, I won't go into full details but lets just say I will never own a Remington 870 because of what he did... Anyway any kind of info that can help me date this gun would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks so much to any help and I will keep you all posted on the outcome of my attempts at making custom stocks.. Thanks for any info -Shane

    Since you have the original to use as a pattern, I would search for someone who has a duplicating machine. Some stock builders have their own, but some don't, choosing to outsource that part of the process. A google search might find one in your area.
    Bruce Baer a PA gunsmith, has a separate stock shop with a duplicator. The stock end of the business is run by his wife Gerry who does the duplicating also. Bruce does the final inletting on a milling machine, but otherwise she does it all. I wouldn't hesitate calling there and talking with her about your project. Untill a couple of years back when a bridge fire took place, all of Joel Russo's stocks originated in that shop.
