Nutmeg is an evergreen that grows in the spice islands and a few other places around the world. It is special because you get Nutmeg and mace from one tree. It is the only tropical tree that produces 2 spices. Nutmeg is from the nut, mace is from the ground up outter covering of the nut. It takes 7 to 9 years before the tree produces the nut and at 20 years it reaches full production.

JP; Was it a drop in or did you have to do some inletting? The nutmeg color looks good. I used it on my wifes 17M2. I had to do a little fitting on hers and finished with many coats of tung oil. I went unfinished because I had to cut the stock down to fit her.

I had to inlet a little. The scope mount was the most. The dremel works wonders. I only put 2 coats of BLO on it. The gun wax is a breeze and works very well.

Very nice. I got my 98 in a Boyds thumbhole target/varminter stock. Have had it for about three years and just the other day I noticed to stock was getting tight on the barrel. Some 440 grit took care of it in less than 5 min.
