    Gene, i`ve worked a lot of different wood including a few spalted pieces. The second gun has such fine checkering I don`t think a spalted piece would checker that fine. But I have been wrong once before. Larry

    It looks like a picture that was on here a few months back. The owner told me it was pin oak if I remember right. I thought it was a knock out looking piece.

    I don't know, its probably just me, but if I were to show off a beautiful piece of wood, I wouldn't photo it on a garbage can!

    Well seeing as that I cut down both trees that those stocks were made from, I can tell you that the first is spalted hard maple and the second is pin oak burl. I still own the Parker but have since sold the Seitz. FYI the spalted hard maple checkers great, however I do not prefer checkering on my trap gun.

    Clearly spalted maple (= kinda rotten and a bit soft) and probably an unusual piece of pin oak for the second stock. It is very nice.
    I am surprised at the ability of some to distinguish between Turkish, English California and Black Walnut. All of them are simply the same species of tree grown in different areas.

    Your close Pat. There are two major species, English, and black. I'll spare everone the genus and species names.
