30 years ago most military rifles were junk if ammo was a problem. That is why the big re-barrel craze got moving. Because rifles with a split bridge and other weirdness were a pain to scope, most were not even considered worth reworking. Many rifles with these conditions were used for hunting until scopes became the norm. When is the last time someone you know wanted to scope a .303 Brit to hunt with? Back when iron sights were king, the deer woods was full of them. I am thinking that the wood really is meaningless. All the military guns used to hunt had the wood cut off anyway. It could not have been that important what it was made of.
