Did ruger use different finishes on their walunt stocks? I am referring to early 10/22's and 44 carbines. I have several that seem to be original finishes that range from satin oil to gloss.

I think they did to a certain degree. I have two single digit 44 Deerstalkers that have a high gloss finish and I know they are correct. The 10/22's I believe were all satin but the more you handle and polish them they become glossy. I have a 44RS that was sent to John Amber from Bill Ruger that has almost a glass finish. Here are pictures of the number 4 gun and the Amber RS.
