Birch was used as replacement stocks, rifles came from the factory with walnut. I know there's a few folks that believe some HRA's came from the factory with birch but they've never been able to prove it.

Okay, I know Poyer's book says that H&R used "many" birch stocks to build with (Poyer's book, p. 124). A replacement stock wouldn't have the DOD cartouch would it???

From what I understand, Poyer's information is suspect.

I have one of those birch stocks with a beautifully crisp DAS stamp. I keep it around because I love the color. Nicest walnut-stained birch I've ever seen.
IIRC the theory/thought is that these stocks were on rifles rebuilt at SA.
