Default Silver Pigeon cracked stock

About a box into my day yesterday I noticed this. Watched it grow as I shot another 3 boxes. Put a monkey on my back for the remainder of the day...

2 year old SP1 Sporting. Purchased new with +/- 5 K of only 7.5s target rounds fired. Stock has never been removed (in my ownership time) and I treat my guns with respect.

Suggestions?

You better have it looked at. I would stop shooting it if you saw the crack lengthen.

I'd contact Beretta and see if they will take care of it for you.

Or see if Bob Day has a way to fix it (epoxy?).

Or you can look here for wood.

Thanks. Sounds like Bob Day is the guy.

I will give him a call this week.

I sent off a query to Beretta customer service, but honestly if I can get it fixed locally and in a shorter time frame, that would be preferable.

Not an uncommon place to crack. Loose stock can be a factor, or just not enough relief in the inletting (looks tight).

Pretty easy repair with the right tools. If noticeable at all, it will be minimal.

Bob can fix that. Probably pull the stock and wick in cyanoacrylate glue with an accelerator. If the crack is worse than it looks from the outside, he may epoxy a staple from the inside. Either way, it should be virtually invisible.

BOBGRA....I have seen those and agree they are pretty.

But at $1000 a set and higher, plus fitting and shipping I would rather get this fixed locally and keep saving for gently used DT10😁

I think that set was $650 plus tax, shipping and having it fit.

I got on their email list and periodically they would send out a sale email on their wood stock sets (although it's been a while since I've seen one).

Is anyone 3D printing parts like this yet (stock, fore end)?

You could do a cool carbon stock but the weight/balance would be off.

Unless you want to upgrade the stock I would just have Bob repair it. It will be just as good and he can glue it and put in a reinforcement depending on the size of the crack. He can make sure that the stock is properly fitted to the action so that it will never crack again. If you buy a new stock it will still have to be well fitted to make sure it does not crack under fire.

To get it fixed the fastest +3 on Bob Day. Great guy, works out of his house near LA Clays, does amazing work.
He fitted my Silver Pigeon for me and put an adjustable recoil pad and I love it.

To save money, you can check if Beretta can fix it, but that will take time, and the weather is great for clay shooting.

I ended up pulling the stock and the crack did not go very deep.

Went to a woodworking store near me and picked up some cyanoacrylate glue and after taping off the area put a line of glue over the crack and gently encouraged it into the crack with airpressure.

Now 300 rounds past the repair and it seems fine. I will continue to watch and if it reappears I can reasses.

Beretta service is slow and spotty at best.
If the stock bolt loosened up from use, that could cause this.
Other possible causes for this:
Stock bolt to tight or the in-letting is not quite right.

Personally, I'd call Bob Day.
