I originally had three of the oversize national match birch stocks, new, in the white. These are the stocks that are 2 1/2" wide right in front of the receiver, tapering to 2" at the ferrule. They are right at the max for HP NM competition. Were made by Reinhart Fajen in the late 80's/early 90's. In 1991 I used one to bed a rifle for HP competition and wound up painting it. This past year I finished the second one to have a good-looking alternative to my second rifle, which is currently in a fiberglass stock. The third stock I was considering selling, but when I pulled it out to take photos I noticed some horizontal splits in the buttstock area. Is the stock repairable, usable as-is (with finishing), or just firewood? I don't have any intention of finishing it myself or using it, just trying to figure out what to do with it.
