What he said.
That is a fantastic peice of timber for a modern factory rifle!
Looks almost maple and with a wee bit of quilting.
Gonna look super fantastic if given a proper oil finish.
im jealous mine has a patch of it on the side of the butt,none along the stock ,doug

Hi chaps, it's my hmr varmint that Mr shippers is doing a brilliant job on, he done me proud on my tikka m55 308 as well(might post some pics if I can figure out how to!) we are thinking of staining the cz in a mid grey so the stripes come through nearly black. Any thoughts on this?
Seems a bit of a shame in my eyes to stain such a nice piece of wood. If it were mine I would be looking into a nice, semi-matte sp? natural oil finish that brings out the character of the wood. Of course the trade off is a bit more maintenance. It's your rifle, so do what you like I suppose.
What wood is this? I think I know.
His house is in the village though.
Ah - but I digress: it must be a Frosty night!
I know what you're saying Alastair , but I'm looking to use an alcohol based stain which is easier to remove if I ever wanted to. I've looked at other grey stocks and if anything, the grain becomes more prominent. How many brown guns do you need to see!
I would have said it was flame maple but I dont know if they make stocks out ofmaple. regards SBM
