Model 5 !

You may find a mod. 5, they have the improved mod. 2 action, but with shorter barrel. Excellent for field hunting, I hunt rabbits with mine here in New Zealand with 2-7x scope.

Hi TOU
The stock on my #5 has little if any stain at all. It did used to have a darker stain but I stripped and sanded it down to bare wood and then just sealed and bl-oiled it.
