M1A stock

Recently bought a new SA M1A with walnut stock. I notice the stock is stained but not really finished. What does SA recommend to coat the stock with?
 
Do you have any pictures? If the stock is unfinished you may want to reach out to Springfield Armory.
Here is a photo but it’s hard to tell the finish. It feels to me like wood that has just been stained with no finish or sealer . It seems like it needs something to make it resist moisture. I’ll reach out to Springfield Armory. Thanks

Have a black synthetic M-1 stock with no metal laying around the shop, if you think that is what you want get ahold of me.

The stocks are finished with either tung or boiled linseed oil. They are a matte finish not glossy.
