Just bought this gun. Stock built by Phil Simms. Grain figure is outstanding with very similar grain on each side. Anyone know anything about what the wood is (Species)?
Now the finish could have a toner in it that is making it look this dark, then it could be maple, but without it in my hands I can't be sure.I do not think it is maple. maple is very hard to stain, and this gun is dark wood and clearly not stained maple. It is a type of walnut for sure.
