There are PLENTY of options for Classic bolt guns with real walnut and blue finish.

You seem to be mistaking the modernistic, flashy, space age looking rifles made by Weatherby and Remington with high gloss finish on both metal and wood that were popular during the late 50's to 1980's.

The true Classic stock designs were from the 1920's up through the 1950's. They all had subdued finishes on both metal and wood. For a while everyone was trying to put fins on rifles just like cars. Ruger is credited for breaking that trend with the Classic design of the 77 when introduced in 1968. Thankfully most other manufacturers followed suit and got back to classic rifle designs.
