good walnut is starting to get scarce also, was told by a sawmill that good trees are getting hard to find as they are getting all logged out, so sawmills are making lumber from trees that they normally wouldn't of taken in yrs. past.

That is fact.
Due to Thousand Cankers disease there is a lot of restrictions on transporting walnut these days. It's not so much the trees aren't available, they just can't be transported to the bigger mills.

Well,
I talked to John the Customer service manager.
They are going to send me another stock.
John said that the tech last time was suppose to inspect the last stock, but 
obviously that did not happen.
He assured me that Nick, a service rep, will go to the tech and inspect the stock with him before 
it is shipped to me to make sure that it is a good stock.
Wish me Luck !

Stock number three arrived today.
Guess what, it is cracked as well.
I am going to repair my original stock and one of the replacements for a back up and call it a day.
I am done with Lyman, I will never again buy a muzzle loader from them.

That is astounding! I am stunned by your repeated difficulties!
Three cracked stocks - it defies explanation!
Are the suppliers not drying the wood long enough? Has there been a change in the wood preparation process? Are the stocks being shaped while under stress?
Is the disease mentioned above creating weak areas?
Are the rifles and stocks being packed and shipped improperly?
No matter what the reason, why haven't the flaws been caught before shipment?
I would suggest calling one more time and asking "What the heck?!" It may not help you, but may direct them to solve their systemic problem.

I would suggest calling back also. 

My brother was having problems with getting information on a Mossberg O/U he had sent in to rectify a manufacture issue.  He kept getting the run around each time he called.  So I sent a letter detailing the problems he was having to the "Chairman of the Board" on behalf of my brother.  I got a phone call the day the letter arrived.  Problem got fixed!

Poor service is a reflection of poor management personnel.  A warehouse employee gets an order to ship out a stock.  He/she walks over and pulls a packaged stock off the shelf, never visually inspects it for flaws because management hasn't required him to.

You got farther with them than I ever did. They ignored my correspondence.

Glad you received some satisfaction even after all the hassles.

st louis hawken is by far my favorite kit to build. They arent perfect and require some time at fitting, but they are an amazing shooting rifle. For a factory built, check into the traditions hawken woodsman.

I would second the Woodsman. I picked one up at a gun show for a pretty good price and it's my current favorite to shoot ( they all are when first bought though ) Seriousy though it sights well and shouders even better. It's the one I'm going to use for the contest as soon as I get a chance to shoot again. Hopefully that's this Sunday. Unless you're set on a new one, Used ones can be found for a whole lot less money.

I gave up on Lyman too. When they came out with the recall about the bad breech plug. I sent mine back for an exchange. No more Lyman for me.

Customer service was pleasant enough. It's just the gun sucks now. Nothing like the old Lymans. I don't really blame Lyman. Investarms is at fault. I'm not sure what happened to them to be putting out guns like this when they used to be so good.
