What Type of Wood on Indian SLR and Enfield Type Rifles?

I'm trying to find out what type of wood was used on the Indian SLR furniture and if it is the same as that used on theEnfield type rifles they used prior to the SLRs?

The majority of both were native woods with the most prevalent being mahogany and teak wood being the secondary.

I don't know what type of wood, but it is the same as on the Ishy 2A No 1 Mk 3 clone. Reddish, medium short grain, and brittle.
