Did the HW77 ever come with a factory walnut stock?

Reason I ask is that I found one from a guy who advertised it as such and the pics are not clear enough for me to tell about the grain in the wood. I do notice that the comb is higher than any of the 77 stocks I have had. Looks more like a 97 stock, but I do not know if they have ever been produced with walnut factory stocks either.
I had never heard of one adn thought someone here would know.

If you are looking at the same rifle I am, that stock is NOT walnut, clearly it is beech.

Same family as the 335/333. I have one. Kind of a 333 in a 335 stock. A pretty nice gun in the 250-300 dollar range at most.

This one is also intersting in that it has what looks to be the HW97 front.. whatever it is that makes the 97 cocking lever design. It's like that.

In other words, if this action is factory stock, then this rifle also never came or meant to be equipped with factory open sights. Since there's no place to even mount sights, I'm guessin it's factory.

palm swell checkering, if that's the right way to say it.

My very best shooting with this rifle was five shots under half a dime at thirty yards off a front Calwell rest. I've come close many times but never quite duplicated that day.
