We have all heard the debates over walnut vs synthetic stocked rifle, blued steel vs stainless barreled actions and why one is better than the other, especially in adverse weather conditions like we have up here in Alaska.
When it really comes down to it, what rifle do you prefer and use the most; a synthetic stocked stainless or a blued steel bedded into a walnut stock and why do you choose one over the other?
These days when I hold a walnut stocked rifle in my hand and look at it, I see a classic. The wood usually has a few dings here and there and at times the blue is wearing thin on the barreled action. These rifles for some reason look like they have character, the earlier the rifle the more character it looks like it has. What do you see when you look at these walnut stocked, blued steel rifles?
Now for synthetic/stainless, when I hold one in my hand..... well I will leave that up to you. Thanks in advance.
