Thanks for the replies!
I bought my gun from Simpsons a year ago and I just love it. I took a sheep with it in March, one perfect shot!
A few months ago, using a bipod to sight in a new lead free round and the schnabel forend tip snapped off! So I cut and shaped the end and I actually like it better. So one crack delt with! This morning I was wiping it down with some oil and noticed a tiny crack near the front of the bottom metal. I took it apart to examine it and it looks OK but I want to find a synthetic stock to have just in case.
I really like this gun. I trimmed the barrel to 18", added a marbles bullseye rear sight, new banded from sight, sighted it in dead on at 100 yards. The gun weighs 6.25 lbs. and the length of pull is 14.25" and it fits me perfectly. I would feel very bummed if the stock failed but I'd be more bummed if I didn't have a replacement stock set aside for it and miss out using it for a hunt.
Thanks again for the replies and advice. I'll keep an eye out for a deal on a stock.
EZearl, what was the length of pull on that stock as it came form midwayusa?
