What panfisher said...... and stated much nicer than what I had in mind.

Wars have been fought in all weather extremes with wood stocked, blued barrel rifles.
Some rifles did not even have bluing, and left factories in the white- think Mosin, 1861 Springfield ..... even the Pennsylvania Rifles of the 1700's were "browned", not blued..... and almost none of them had synthetic stocks until the latter 1/2 of the 20th century.
