All, 

I don't know how I missed this my first pass but, upon further inspection, I found a pretty good crack in the draws.  I don't even think it's worth doing linseed oil treatments until the gun is fixed.  I've emailed Brian d**k about the issue; not sure there's anything else I can do. I'll attach photos for those interested.

From what I can see in your photos the “draws” are still quite solid. The are oh the for stock referred to by that name are the angled cuts in the wood where the receiver at the trigger mount makes contact. The area showing the damage at the rear by the reinforcing strap is located is probably cracked by age and wood expansion.
That area should be an relatively easy fix with cleaning of the crack then strong epoxy and possibly a screw installed at an angle to draw the crack together and add strength. It could be done without any outside evidence at all.
You will want to address this crack before applying any oil.
Good luck!

That is fixable. I mirror what Frameman 1 has stated.

Okay, thanks again for your guys’ help. I’m clearly no expert at this and learning as I go so I really appreciate all the advice and insight you guys offer. I’ll still probably have it looked at by someone who knows these things well. I’d rather not mess it up with my inexperience. Cheers, guys
