Alright, so I bought this gun a few weeks back. Winchester model 70 (in .270). As far as I can tell, the gun was made in the early 70s though it seems Winchester Serial number ID is pretty poor. It starts with a G and is in the late 200,000s. It says "classic sporter" on the barrel and has the big, non-rotating claw for the extractor (by that I mean the claw remains at the same orientation regardless of bolt rotation). Controlled feed I believe it's called. Non-detachable magazine as well. My question is this: is the stock real wood? Seems like a dumb question but I don't know if it is wood or plastic that has the appearance of wood. It's nice and heavy, but without scratching it up I have no idea how to tell. Not really a critical thing for me to know, but I'd like to anyway. The surface is just so smooth and shiny I have a hard time believing that it is solid wood. Maybe some of you who know more about these rifles an fill me in. As always, thanks for your input!
