Thanks for complementing my collection!
Iíve actually sold a few really nice rifles on the last couple of years - two Frasers, two Jeffery Farquharsons, a couple Gibbs Farqs along with a couple double rifles.
I can say, though, the H&H Woodward is just an incredible rifle well worth restocking but only if done to exacting standards.  If there was any aspect not done properly I donít know if I could stomach it.

There is a superb craftsman, Dennis Smith, who calls himself and his website The Stock Doctor.  You should consider contacting him for an evaluation as to whether your original H&H stock can be repaired.

Huvius,

Thats a very nice group of British single shots. A shame about your H & H.
Years ago there was a gentleman in this neck of the woods named Austin Moorcroft who had an extensive collection of British single shots that first sparked my interest in those rifles. He and his rifles are long gone. Some of his rifles are pictured in reference books on British single shots.

Regards,
Powderman

I have some English single shots, though nothing near as grand as yours. But I do appreciate them. Very nice collection, I am very impressed and envious.

Since I first heard of Mr. Pisano as a young man, I'd be very surprised if he's still with us.

"I can say, though, the H&H Woodward is just an incredible rifle well worth restocking but only if done to exacting standards.† If there was any aspect not done properly I donít know if I could stomach it."

I too would highly recommend Dennis "The Stock Doctor." He has fixed two stocks for me, one was broken just like yours; through the wrist and through checkering. He fixed it perfectly and I have actually shot the rifle at matches with no problems. You cannot tell at all that the stock was broken in half through the checkered grip. Amazing work and he could properly fix yours.

Incredible collection you have! Well done!
