Gentlemen, is there any way to fix this without having to replace entire stock.
Appreciate any advice. Thanks

It takes a little bit of work, but it can be repaired. I don't know if you want to put that much effort into it, when aftermarket stocks are quick/easy and relatively inexpensive.


1). You could fiberglass the area, redrill the hole, reshape the contours, then paint it. ( I would add some sort of lag or dowel to strengthen the repair.

2. cut out the entire V notch, rough it up. Fiberglass the whole thing flush, drill, and tap for tradition sling then paint it.

Dremel it out and put in some of the screw in sling swivels. Won't have to worry about it anymore.

All the above. Plus maybe a note to Mossberg...

Thanks, Gents, for all the info. Also, this is the 2nd Mossberg I own that this has happened to, and always the upper end of the stock. Their weak link, I guess. Otherwise, couldn't be happier with their lower end rifles, really.

When I was a kid, I never liked mossbergs because the only ones I ever saw were 500s, and most of them had a crack in the butt stock around the pistol grip area.
