how do i fix a cracked stock??

i just bought a used remington 700 KS fiberglass/graphite stock for my remington 7mm ultra mag. upon further inspection, i noticed a crack forward of the magazine well going toward the recoil lug area, but not quite to the recoil lug. the seller refuses to refund my $$. so i'm stuck with a cracked stock. is it possible to fix the crack? should i use a hacksaw to enlarge the crack, fill it with epoxy and add a reinforcing screw?

    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.

    Sorry about the crack and lack of refund. I'm not sure they can be reliably fixed. Where did you get it so I don't do any business with them.

    apparently, after deep thought, the seller decided to give me a refund. i will be ordering a Bell & Carlson medalist tomorrow.
