Knight stock cracked
« on: October 23, 2017, 12:25:30 PM »
My Bighorn stock cracked all the way through, just below the safety.  Is this repairable or should I just find a replacement?

I used Knights contact us page and it worked pretty well.  Their GM actually got back to me with a personalized email and I sent my trigger off to him.

Mine too. My fault. Got the thumbhole and very happy.   Another good bump or fall may leave you with 2 parts

As already suggested go to the Knight site and send an email in... address it to Justin Perry, he is the guy that gets things done there.

That is exactly the opposite of my experience in 2014. They sucked. Thankfully the secretary stepped up and made things right after many calls and a long wait. Hopefully things have changed there!

Knight tells me it isn't covered.  I think I'll try to repair it; what do I have to lose?

Just out of curiosity... do you know who you talked at night about this problem?  And the stock looks newer than I was thinking - how old is the rifle?

Your fix sure looks like it could do the job very well for you.

I donít know who I talked to but the rifle is at least 10 years old and the cause of the crack is:  "I stepped on it."   I canít really blame them for not covering it.

Ooops - that explains it all... Still think you probably have solved your problem...

I'd look for a used stock on ebay or put out a wanted ad. Im not really into that stock repair. May have been different had you been able to drill and epoxy in a steel rod into the the wrist, into the crack area.
