    Mauser Stock Wood Question...

    So Iím looking at a couple different Swedishicon Mauserís that all have different wood types for the stocks. The nicest looking one is Elm but having never handled an Elm stocked rifle Iím lost on the quality... Is Elm a good wood for gun stocks? Is there any reason to avoid it in comparison to other wood types such as walnut?

    The military wouldn't use 'bad' wood for stocks. However, it follows that some types of wood are better for rifle stocks but all were good, depending on supply. Pick the prettiest one.
