No apology necessary gonzo...

Your Walther is prima face evidence that nice wood and blued steel comes in long guns and pistols.

I accquired this Savage from my brother , when I got it it was rough ! Surface rust and the finish on the stock checkering and peeling . I removed the action from the stock , blasted the action with glass beads and cold blued the action . The stock was sanded to bare wood and stained light maple followed by several coats of clear varithane . Between coats of the clear I lightly rubbed the stock with 00000 steel wool . I was surprized by the appearence of the tiger stripe grane ! With each coat of clear it just got better . When I started working on the stocck I had no idea that it would come out as it did . The rifle is a fun plinker and my go to rifle if I am teaching ! It is a single shot makeing it easyer to work on the basics . I guess I fussed up in not takeing any befor pics , its a little hard to beleave the change from befor to after ! schmedly The Old Army Guy , as alwise , Head Up , Eyes Out and ( First Point Of Contact ) In The Grass !

And a little Western theme - Sorry, no wood on the pistols, they've got stag instead.

I don't own a single plastic-stocked rifle or shotgun. Even my Mossberg 590A1 has wood stocks. Black rifles do nothing for me. To each his own, but I prefer wood and steel. Picture shows the 590A1 with wood stocks. That's a Geco DSM 34 below; a German .22 trainer made before they dropped all pretense of rearmament, and switched to making the KKW trainers.
