Re: how do i fix a cracked stock??
That crack is in the worst posible spot, as you probably have already figured out. Especially for a hard kicker. If it was mine I would hog out as much material as I could and rebuild the entire area, including the recoil lug, with an epoxy like Steel Bed or some such. A cross screw or bolt would add some strength but could ruin the looks of the stock and may not be needed. Good luck.
