Birch or Beech?



Log in to see fewer ads
This is a 10/22 magnum factory stock. It has tiger pattern and don't know whether it is birch or beech. I doubt maple.

It looks like maple. Perhaps birch, I've never seen beech like that.

Son of Birch or Son of Beech ?

Out in the forest lived a birch tree and a beech tree. And between them a sappling was growing. The birch tree asked is that a son of a birch or a son of a beech, I don't know said the beech.
Then out of nowhere a wood pecker flew by and landed on the tree. They asked would you go down there and see if thats a son of birch or a son of a beech and the bird said "sure."
They waited awhile then the wood pecker came back and said, "Gentlmen, that is neither a son of a birch or a son of a beech but the best piece of ash that I have ever stuck my pecker in."

I think some of these factory birch tiger striped stocks can be pretty cool looking

Very nice! Is birch the standard wood Ruger used in their post-walnut era?
