Makes perfect sense to me!
Just keeping my options open I guess. Or maybe the options of the next owner.
Stumbled on to a walnut stock, so then I needed to locate a forearm, right?

Not sure what the problem is. Now it is like you have two rifles. You can just change the wood depending on how you feel that day when you wake up.
I'm not seeing a problem here...

Nothing wrong with having good wood.

I'd take the walnut stock over the laminated stock, any day.
Not only do I see a problem, I see a big one. That wood is with out a rifle.
I see it.... you don't have a screwdriver set!
Now you have the best of both worlds. A work stock and forearm and a Sunday go to meeting stock and forearm.
I like the laminate wood. But I much prefer the dark walnut.
