Yours looks like a Beech stock with a clear coat over it, not bad, just Beech. This Glenfield stock is Spalted Beech that has Arrow Wood Finish on it that had naturally darkened in the container. Notice some familiar traits?
After stripping, before refinish:

After several coats:

It was originally covered with a Dark Walnut type topcoat from Marlin/Glenfield that hid the real wood from view.

I was going to agree with the OP but I believe Als' picture knocked it down to second place.

IMA the rainbow 10/22 wasn't mine. I'm just a fan of 60-70s art.

Stock does not look that bad. Of course if you really don't like it you could paint it purple like Ricochet used to do!!

Ive preferred alcohol based stains for wood for years now.
Nice thing about a palletwood stock is yer not out much if it goes badly.
A good friend messed about with one like you have and finally just el-cheapo flat black spray canned it. After a couple years of handling,use and wear it actually looked pretty good as the wrist and forearm wore thin and through in places to the wood finish beneath.

LOL &#x1f601;...&#x1f44d;
Ha! I don't know about purple....
But ,yes it's growing on me.
I've Tru oiled it inside and outside.
And it fits very tight. Takes some doing to get it apart.
So far. She's shooting excellent.
Sometimes this spring, I'll scope it and bench it.
I've built several 10/22s... But this one ,,has been a blast to mess around with.
I'm not afraid to mess something up. It's been alotta fun ,&#x1f601;

True..
I've been trying to thin down the wrist a little bit.
Feels pretty good to me now.
I'm using that Walnut stain.. it works quickly.
It doesn't bother me to keep sanding here or there.
It has always bugged me.. wood sticking out past the trigger. I like it to sit flush.
But as you say.. it's a pallet wood stock.
And it's becoming one of my favorites &#x1f44d;&#x1f601;&#x1f914;

Worked a little bit on ol' ugly again..
Had a scratch on the barrel.
Some bluing worn off.
Was going to get some cold blue..
But my better half hands me a bottle of crafts acrylic paint...
She does something called crafts..
Kinda like me and my .22s. &#x1f604;
She said it was good paint.. dishwasher safe.
????
By golly the stuff sets up like iron.
Don't look bad at all !!!
I gotta try again for a picture.. phone acting up.
I liked her ideal.
I think it'll work &#x1f601;&#x1f44d;

Ha!
I'm starting to just try anything..
After all .. it's just a pallet wood 10/22...
With CPC'd internals..
I don't think you could actually hurt it in anyway..
So ?
For the sake of Pete's Dragon.. we'll try anything &#x1f644;&#x1f44d;
