M1A Wood

Does anyone know about the finish on the NM M1A factory wood finish? I'm not in a high humidity area, but the question just won't go away. Is that wood sealed or just stained? I went ahead with my base coat of teak oil and six rubbed in coats of tung oil. The stock looks great- but did I goober up, waste time, or actually do something productive? I know the GI's before me used BLO and tung oil on Krags, Garands, and M14's and I kinda figger it was done for something besides looks. Am I right or wrong?

Walt, are you back from Camp Perry and settled in yet?

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
