hI FOLKS i'm an ol woodchuck from vt. been huning fishing shooting for 40+ years I've been reading this forum off and on for a couple , a lot of my searches have sent me here . So I filally joined . I need help . when I was 7 years old I split 3 chords of wood for an ol boy and got a 22 rifle for the job . well as the years have gone by , i've shot at least 3 decent bucks with this little 22 and 100s of squirel & partrege. woodchucks, porcupine fox, coon etc. well to the point! a couple days ago , one of my friends came over with her dog , mine and hers started horsing around and wham they knocked the ol 22 onto the tile floor and the bacolite stock broke in half . I know the ol gun isn't worth more than 25 or 30 bucks but I love it . and want to find a stock for it but i'm having zerro luck I dont care if it's cracked ,chipped ,or wood , anything just so I can shoot my ol toy agin it's just a sentimentle thing I guess. anyhow [ don't laugh]:neener: it's a JC Higgins modle 101.16 semi auto made for sears ,I allso think a savege 6,87 will fit but i'm not sure .
HELP ME PLEASE

Don't be so quick to say its not worth anything. There are JC Higgins collectors who would swap you a working .22 for your broken one.

However, depending on it's rarity, they may be getting the best deal.

Talk to a JC Higgins member. One may post later.

Welcome to THR. the stocks for the model 87s do seem to be hard to find. There is a complete rifle on Auction Arms right now. the bid was $11 with 3 days to go.
Have you considered gluing the halves back together? I have repaired tenite stocks before with acra-glass from brownells. It's worked so far. jim
