What is the definitive answer on type of wood? I have heard teak but teak is extremely heavy,dust toxic ,and must use different tools because it is so hard and I believe contains silica.Very pretty rifles.Shoot great. Friend has one I have not been able to make a trade.

I'm not sure. I'm no wood expert. Its definitely dense, though.

As much as I really, really try to leave a milsurp gun alone, I'm really tempted to try to sand her down and get her nice and blonde like a Mitchell's
