      Really nice wood, fancy or deluxe walnut looks good on any firearm. I have worked with birdseye maple which in my opinion is more difficult to
      work than walnut. Early specs for production M1 stocks called for straight grain stocks which obviously changed when the war started. Some
      claim that cherry was used in some carbine stocks ?

      Photos show early Winchester no-trap stocks with some fancy walnut, could have come from the custom shop after the war started

                      There it is in all its sexiness, I don't often tell other men nice wood but in this case I will she is the sweetest flamed M1 stock I've ever seen. I think part of what makes that stock so special is the matching handguards that you don't often find. I had a flamed main stock but gave up trying too find the handguards.

                            There is still nice walnut and birch around, just more difficult to find. Not difficult to spot commercial wood on M1 stocks and it looks nice too

                              Well at least there is enough wood on the commercial handguards too work down into Gov't profile.
