    A barreled action that moves around in a stock is not normal for ANY rifle. I think you should consider what is wrong before doing anything. Sakos are generally fitted very well at the factory & gain little from bedding.

    Update
    After bedding the the action as i was tapping the barrel to release it out of the stock the but came apart and fell clean off the rest of the stock. After all the work i put into a near perfect bedding job i was so horrifiedly bumbfound ( if that makes sence) i didn't even swear, a word of warning check your stock for cracks before you you do any work to it.
    Moving on what other options are there for an improved stock for the 75 or is the origional the best option that are available in Australia.
    Thanks in advance.

    So glue your butt back on and go shoot. No pun intended.

    Photos would help, depending on the break it could be possible to pin and epoxy the butt on, Unless it's broken through the wrist.
    What caliber?
    Any chance to return the stock to Beretta? typically they don't like having broken gun photos on the internet!

    #1 Beautiful repair!
    #2 No, I would n't shoot that !

    You did a great job but the stock has been compromised, even epoxy and pinning, too much risk or losing and eye or hand - is it worth it?

    Do you have photos of the stock before repair? Beretta Aust should get that replaced and off the internet before it goes viral.? What is wrong with these people!
    USA won't ship to Australia? Beretta will not send to Beretta?

    I have screwed a 14 gauge batten screw diagonally to hold the two pieces clamping on that angle wasn't an option. :mad: I guess your right its not worth the injury, I had to put it back together to get it replicated any way, at this rate I might be taking that option if Beretta doesn't pull their finger out.

    I can't speak to your particular repair since I don't know exactly how it was done, but modern epoxies are stronger than the wood they join. Cosmetics are another issue, but a properly repaired stock, even when broken through the wrist, can be as strong or stronger than the original.

    Your repair looks great. Given the work that you did on this repair I would shoot it and not worry. A repair like this using epoxy etc. will hold together with no problems assuming your description of the repair to be as advertised. In fact, that crack was probably in the thing for years before you gave it the nudge it needed to actually break. Go shoot it.

    Rick, Stone, For the first time, I disagree. Is it worth your sight, your hearing, your hands, or the safety of those around you?
    If the through stock broke in one area what about the rest of the stock? Where is the void that will send the wood splintering?
    Why risk it?

    Modern epoxies are great, not doubt, but they are not perfect and may not be applied or mixed perfectly.

    Further without doing a complete NDI on it, Sorry, just not worth it.

    Suit yourself but you could probably use the stock as a bat and rap it against a tree and the tree would break before the stock.

    Non destructive Inspection, Ultra sound, x-ray, flux. Mostly in metal but can be applied in wood, especially laminates.
