These gun do have walnut, just about the lowest grade available though. The Ranger series were meant to be an entry level model. I had one back in the late 1990s and it was a decent gun. It had a rifled barrel and the plain looking wood like yours, although yours does have some good colors to it. I painted it and chased hogs with it for a few yrs. It could he finicky if it wasn't cleaned often, monthly, but other than that it was a good gun.
