  • Maple M1 Garand Stock:

    I'm new to this forum I was into M1 Carbines before this. But I pick up a M1 Garand with a S.N. 39,XXX I think it's April 1940 metal is in good shape. Type 2 rear sight, out style trigger guard and Springfield M1Sca butt plate. I wasn't able to field strip to look at anything else at the time. I haven't got in my hands but will in a couple of weeks. The stock looks like it's been trough the war really ding and mark up. It looks to be a really light in color. So I heard same stocks were made of maple. So if this true who would have use maple and what year, does anyone have an idea? Thanks, Joe

    Can you post some pictures of the stock ? It may just be a light colored walnut stock. I've had walnut stocks that were very light and some that were very dark

      No maple Garand stocks, USGI garand wood is either walnut or birch

        I know this is an old thread but sometimes black ( American Walnut) can have striped figure on occasion ( curly walnut). At first glance it may resemble maple.

          Birch can also have figure (tiger strip) to it. A lot times the stain used on birch covers the figure.
