Walnut to me. It is a very heavy and dense wood.
This wood was given to me at last weeks gun show and the guy didn't know what type of wood it is.
I used a piece on this Gun Metal Bolt Action that I plan to give him at the next gun show for the wood he gave me.
Sanded to 400X, buffed with extra fine steel wool, sealed with 4 costs of Thin CA, buffed with extra fine steel wool,
applied 6 coats of MINWAX WBOM Polyurethane using my "Dipping Method", buffed with extra fine steel wool and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss.
