I've searched the forum and done some Googling, no avail. A couple of months ago my father gave me his old Wingmaster and told me it doesn't even have a box of shells thru it. It has some wear on the blueing but is still a beautiful gun. The problem is the stock is cracked about a full 2". The serial number is V18xxxxV. Questions; 1) in your opinion is it okay to shoot? 2) I've been thinking about replacing the stock but can't find any replacements except plastic, know where to find some? 3) I've thought about replacing the cracked stock with wood, adding an 18" barrell, and extended mag to make it my HD gun. But thinking by the time I do all of that I could have an Express and have a back-up. But I really like the looks of the wingmaster so much more. Opinions? Thanks guys.
