Default reccomendations on a toe repair

Was curious how people would suggest this toe repair on this old trojan, don't have the gun in hand yet, so this pic is the best I can do.

A new piece of wood would have to be put on and blended into the stock and finish touched up. Even with matching the grain the repair would be visible slightly.

Thanks Brian, Thats what I had assumed, I have done a similar repair on a VH before, but was just curious if there was a trick I was unaware of.

You could try putting it under your pillow at night and see what happens in the morning.

Thats funny! The only problem with that is that the fairy might replace it with a VH stock or worse yet, a Fox stock. Be careful.

Default toe repair

just bought some nice american walnut pieces from bell forest products to fix a toe on an old ithaca. with my power miter box and bench belt sander made the new to to an exact match. drilled hidden pin hole for brass pins and adhered with defcon 2 ton epoxy. adhered incredibly well, touched up with a little stain to match color to stock and in the process of refinishing with permalyn products. so far so good. will sen u a picture. hardest part was sanding the stock after finish was removed. 220, and 320 grit. a day each grit. masking tape over the checkering to no wear it down any more.!
