Hi everyone. My P1853 Enfield has some cracks behind the barrel plug, beside the lock, and it extends externally out through left side (see pictures). I see some limited evidence of epoxy used to fix it in the past, but most of the cracks are open. This gun is a shooter, not a wall-hanger...so what's the best advice for fixing these cracks to strengthen the stock? Strength-wise, Epoxy sounds good but its hard to get it to penetrate deep. So what's the best glue for penetrating deep but will survive recoil?
