I'm thinking of tackling this project. The stock is from a pre-garcia Sako Finnbear Deluxe 7mm Mag I inherited from my grandfather. The guys over at the Sako Collector's forum think it is salvageable. General consensus seems to be pins and accuglass. In fact, I have been offered $175 bucks for it as is if I decide to restock.
I really want to restore this back to it's original state however. The barrel and action is 99% and in excellent shape. They are beautiful rifles. I have a .243 Forester Deluxe and would like to have the matching pair. I showed it to the gunsmith at Buck & Bass and he wanted no part of it. Do you guys now anyone who might have the skills to do this job?
Here's the intact Forester and what the Finnbear will look like restored:

It can be put back together but it isn't going to look worth a crap, especially with those chinks missing, and it is going to be weak at the wrist which isn't where you want it to be weak.
I would get that $175 bucks someone is offering you right now, don't look back, and have a new piece of wood put on it.
Washington is playing their ignorant and ill-informed constituency like an organ grinder plays his monkey. The monkey shuts up and does what he's told, as long as he gets his banana. There is no difference in Washington. They squander the blood sweat and tears of the hard working, tax paying Americans and lie to them when they're caught. Needing their ever-increasing supply of bananas, the trained monkeys will continue to dance for their bananas.
