    Does anybody know what the black stuff covering the nails on this handguard is and why it was used on some hand guards but not others?

    generally with factory non refurb wood, the color of the shellac shows over the shiny end of the pin. When you start seeing a raised section at the pins and them being shiny, its because they arent covered with original type shellac. Now, I dont know what the darkened area is, but if the wood hasnt been installed on a rifle in the past, most if it I dont find to be factory original.

    It was wrapped in old crusty wax paper and cosmoline and appears to never have been installed or used. Why would they refinish furniture that was never installed/used?

    It certainly seems to be a shellac finish. There is a very pronounced ‘holographic’ or chameleon-like effect when changing lighting or angles. Here you can see the light and dark parts alternating on the stock which matches the handguard.

    For comparison sake, I made this collage using images posted by Tantal at the beginning of this thread that show the black stuff and have also a very similar finish to mine. Tantal’s are on top and mine are on the bottom.
