Exactly. I thought hackberry would be too soft for use as a gun stock. I have an M-14 NM stock made of maple and it is bizarre enough. (It is still in the original plastic "shipping" bag and has never been installed. Will need glass-bedding from a professional glass-bedder.)

I have heard gunsmiths call the M1 and M-14 birch stocks "apple crate wood". I'm guessing because they are old "walnut only" fans. They'd probably have a stroke seeing a Garand stock made out of hackberry.
