Any good or advantage we can get from using a hard wood piece on our guns rather than the synthetic / polymer products?

Of course, good looking.

But Anything else related to the performance, like accuracy etc?

if your taking about a springers wood might help a bit especially on some of the magnum ones
the weight will help with accuracy and absorb some of the recoil...but nothing you'll wright home about
any other airgun nothing other then pure looks and feel...good example off the top of my head is my HW98
synthetic stock it shoots just as accurate as the same HW98 with wood... :wink:

Yeah, I checked the data sheet of several guns come with the options on wood or non-wood, the weight measurement is just same although I think the wood should be heavier than the plastic too...

And looks the woods can't help on durable and also need special care right?

I just want to know, if one day I will buy the high end guns and have the choice on wood or non-wood, what I should pick....

I think it matters on intended use. Heavy abuse would lend itself to synthetic like hunting. I'd love if there was an option for the tx200 in synthetic so I could just throw it around with little worry. With the wood stock I handle her very carefully with purpose. In the end if you can try all the combinations you are interested in at the store.

I prefer wood for hunting~ it's a lot warmer in the hands when the temperatures start dropping.
Walnut is king here, with good old birch running second. I really dislike cheeking some of the synthetics- might as well cheek a piece of ice....

I like wood stocks for hunting too. You have to protect it when in the field. I think no rifle should be thrown around. When you go to make your kill shot, your sights could be thrown off too. When you are hunting to feed yourself or your family, your rifle should be taken well care of when ever it leaves your home. I am talking centre fire rifles here but it’s good practice for any gun.
Last fall I offered to sight a friends rifle, her and her boyfriend had been throwing it in the back of trucks, boats and atv trailers the year before thinking it’s tough, it’s synthetic. Let’s just say, for a backup gun, it would be unreliable. And I let them know it :axe:

X2 on the warmer cheek rest as well. Everything counts when making a shot.

I replaced the plastic stock on my 97 Blackline with an HW 97KT wooden thumbhole stock.

I REALLY prefer the wood over the black synthetic- warmer, feels better in the hand and

on the shoulder due to the adjustable butt plate, same as on the HW98.
