fair enough, I haven't handled one of the newer stocked guns.**** man that's solid Walnut with a lite coat of stain. Smooth as a babies ass............Not a flaw in it and damn sure aint none that laminated bullchit......lol It does need to be oiled......
I hear ya I too would like to swap my 500 furniture over to the walnut...Did yours come with it or did you purchase aftermarket?fair enough, I haven't handled one of the newer stocked guns.
I prefer the look of the walnut on my older mossy with a little gloss finish on it.
Wood over polymer stocks all day long though on the short barrel pump guns!
