Default M40XB wood....walnut or hardwood ?????

What kind of wood can I expect to find on the Remington 40X heavy barrel rifle that I ordered from the CMP ? Walnut or some type of hardwood ?

They all came from Remington with walnut. I've never seen anything different. I have seen some that were very light in color but the stock was just a lighter walnut. Also new cut/sanded walnut will be light until it has time to age. So if you refinish one don't swet it if it's not dark red brown when you sand it. If you sill it with poly or something like that you will need to stain it as the dark color only happens if the wood is exposed to oxygen. Donald
