    Many Sako stocks, especially the Deluxe models, can be mistaken for Maple by those not familiar with European or "French" Walnut. It is much lighter than American or Black Walnut. If your stock is actually Maple it did not come from the Sako factory & is an aftermarket stock. There are many photos here on the forum that show these stocks. If you peruse the forum you can see how blonde they are, especially the L46 & L469 Models. If you post pictures of your stock we can confirm what you have.
