    Ok need honest opinions. I got this walnut and there is enough to do stock and forearm. I have considered it for my 1909 16. The stock has been cut and it’s way to short for me, so do I keep looking or have one made from this wood.

    I say go for it. It’s nicer than your gun would have had from the factory but if you like it that’s all the matters

    That is very nice walnut. How did you get that? It is American or European

    What do you think Marc about that on an Auto 5. I think he needs to use it

    That will make a very nice set on his 16 gauge

    I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Guy told me European walnut. I haven’t looked at any pictures yet to see if I agree. If one of you know your wood let me know.

    Hopefully. I just looked at some pic too. Looks like walnut. I’m for sure not a wood guy.

    It look to me like Turkish walnut. The one you want to have

    The grain set on that looks perfect, even down to the bunching at the butt end.
    Go for it. Would love to see it done.
