While the collector types want the military wood, these rifles were given a new lease on life with new wood. I see them as still very useful rifles entering a new time of service in the civilian world. Why not a nice looking stock? I might prefer a somewhat darker finish so as not to stand out on the woods; but the natural hackberry really looks good.

Just wondering (I'm not a wood expert), is there a good reason why the buttstock cavities aren't drilled out for the cleaning kit? Just cost-cutting?
