This might explain how they get that way!!  I am sure he probably hoses it down after the hunt to get most of the mud and dirt off of it.

G’day mate!

I always thought it’s because they were left out back in the “Out-back” Laugh

That’s a good way to dry the rifle after it has been hosed down after the hog hunt!!!

Id like to know what the Aussies put on the wood stocks of their Winchesters back in the day that makes the wood so dark.  Seems like a lot of them have darker than normal wood.
