Help on recommending stock repair

So a few years ago I acquired 141 Remington from the widow of one my close friends. The gun is super cool with a delux stock, tons of character, and four digit serial (28xx). The gun is in good operating condition, but the stock has been repaired where it meets the receiver.
With that said, that repair is loosening and is need of yet another repair. I would like to use this gun and I want to have the stock fixed so that is in good solid condition.
I have two options; finding a qualified person to repair the existing, or to replace the butt stock completely. I prefer the former as replacement will be labor intensive, time consuming, and expensive. I am hoping that one of the members here can reccomend an individual that is qualified to make such a repair. I am willing to pay what it takes and hopefully save myself some time and frustration. I have attached a few photos and thank you in advance for your help.

You can have that stock fixed with epoxy and wooden pins by a good gun smith that is good with stock repair. Nails will always loosen up. It will cost you a fortune to replace that stock with a one that looks original and a good repair will not lower the value as much as a replacement.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
