      Try "Accra-Glass" with dust from the piece of wood you're repairing. There's too many good "bedding" epoxy's out there to use Gorilla glue.
      Gorilla glue is good stuff but not for stock repairs.

        Gorilla Glue foams and expands as it dries, making it good for patching cracks as it expands deep into the crack, but it doesn't dry hard enough to sand and has air bubbles throughout. I would not use it on a gunstock unless I was trying to repair a substantial crack.

          ...and maybe not even then.

            I have used Elmer yellow wood glue and sawdust from the stock I am repairing.

              Gorilla glue and Elmers Wood glue never really "harden".
              It's better to use an epoxy type glue for stock repairs.

                How about chewing gum and duct tape?
                Only kidding!

                I like Bubba's epoxy idea.
                I have used epoxy on a cracked cast iron sewer pipe.
                It stopped the leak.

                  99; If you go to Brownell's they have Shellac Sticks and Epoxy Dough. You can also find them and other Woodcraft sites. Used mainly for furniture repair the are heat molded or chemical hardened. Very durable and a very good color match.

                    I've used Plastic Wood on the toe of one rifle and it sanded nicely but it's a lighter color and had to be stained to match. It has held up well, but you can see it's a repair.

                      I tested some Gorilla glue on a piece of wood yesterday, and found that it foamed up and was very difficult to work with. It did harden enough to sand, but was much too light in color, almost white.
