utility grade Stevens pump shotgun.

Typical gunshow price: $100 - $150

UNLESS it's a short-barreled "trench" (sometimes called Guard Gun for railroads, prisons and banks). gun.

NOTE THAT MANY NORMAL 820's were cut down to "simulate" trench guns. These are valueless.

And you probably can't tell. You will need an expert.

Real honest to goodness Stevens 820 trench or guard guns in excellent condition, with the horrible icky plastic "tennite" stock in good condition are quite valuable.

On the other hand, if it's a normal 820, where the barrel extends more than 3 or so inches past the end of the magazine, (28 inch barrels are normal) then unless it's pristine, $100.

There are almost no cracked stocks that can't be fixed.

Fixing cracked stocks is what I do for fun.

Send me a private message and we can chat about it, but you could send me the stock and I can probably de-crack it for you.

So? The top part is gone.... big deal.

We replace hunks-of-wood on gun stocks all the time.

it's just a bit of carving.

However, if you 're insistent not to try, Bob's gun shop has a new semi-finished Stevens 820 stock in Walnut for $85.00

Boyds has a Stevens 820 semi-finished for $39.
http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/STEVENS-820-12-GA-p/300-174.htm

I strongly suspect that Popperts will have a new or used stock http://www.poppertsgunparts.com/contact.htm

and don't forget Jack First http://www.jackfirstgun.com/


But send me a PM and or post a photo and I'll tell you if the one you have can be repaired.

Sorry to say, the Stevens Tenite stocks do not take to repair. This early type of plastic does not let glues and adhesives bond well.

I think " broke stock" negates mint condition. If you want a true assessment, post a few pics.

How much do you charge to refurbish a plastic butt stock with several cracks with a small chuck of plastic missing from the butt plastic plate?

Carl,

This board is for sharing information. It's not a gunshop or place to buy parts. Your best bet is to talk to folks locally to see if there's a gunshop someone recommends. If that's not possible , do an Internet search for gunsmiths in you town and start contacting them.

Good luck with your project.

Carl,
The Stevens plastic stocks (called Tenite) cannot be repaired. When it gets exposed to heat and light it weakens and breaks down. The only thing to do is replace it with a wood stock (Boyds has them for $65). Stevens only used Tenite because there was a shortage of wood gunstocks after WWII. Tenite was also what GM used to make steering wheels on cars from the 40s and 50s. They stopped because after a few years there was nothing left but the metal frame.
