stock question
 
Im looking at a top lever and noticed the stock has a large gap between the frame as if the stock is sliding back or pulled away from the action . Ive seen that before on numerous old doubles . How is that normally repaired though ? Im trying to find some before and after pictures if possible .

Stock head is likely broken internally. Are the locks pulling back from the frame too up in front?

Yes there appears to be a few mm gap there .

It could also be the result of excessive oil over the life of the gun causing the wood to become oil soaked and soft or punky allowing both the stock to work back from the frame and the lock plates to work to the rear into the softened wood.

Heres the Parker in question https://www.gunbroker.com/item/885240497 .
Think ill pass on it as ive recently found a interesting project I may take up .

Yeah... it is best to leave that one right where it is. That thing is a money pit and the price is 3-4 times what it should be in that condition.

I wonder if some poor Remington is wearing this Parker's hammers?

That is what I was thinking , I vaguely remember seeing one in similar condition to this one last year sell in the $3-400 range .
