Walnut Hardwood Flooring That Looks and Feels Like a Piece of History
Henry’s, Remington, Colt and Sharps were just some of the many rifle manufacturers of the 1800s. Walnut was the primary wood species used on stocks for these incredible rifles. They were known throughout the Old West for their elegance and artistry. These guns were handmade and crafted with incredible intricacy. To see one is to appreciate how things were constructed before the Industrial Age took hold.
The rifles are a reminder of bygone days, when gunslingers squared off in the streets and then everyone threw one back at the saloon. It’s a time that should be honored. Thus, we pay homage to these pioneering gun makers and their superlative products with our unfinished old-growth walnut hardwood flooring for sale.

Why Choose Walnut Hardwood Flooring?
If you're looking to upgrade your home with new hardwood flooring, walnut makes an ideal choice. There are multiple reasons this species was a top choice for handcrafted rifle stocks in the time of the Old West and is one of the most popular options for natural hardwood flooring today.
Walnut Is Attractive
Boards milled from American walnut trees have a distinctive look that you'll only get with the real thing. In this species, the heartwood features darker chocolate and coffee tones, while the sapwood is typically a much brighter, creamy beige — the contrast makes for a beautiful sight to take in. Over time, from use and exposure to the elements, walnut will develop an attractive and lustrous patina that gets better every year.
Walnut Is Durable
Beyond inviting warmth and aesthetic appeal, solid walnut flooring is a natural hardwood. This feature makes walnut an excellent choice for your home, including high-traffic areas, and means there's less likelihood of leaving scratches or marks. It's also stable and unlikely to shift after installation, as long as it's properly acclimated before going in. Wide-plank walnut floors will last for years with minimal ongoing care.
The Added Benefits of Using Old-Growth Wood
These advantages both make walnut an investment that adds value to your home. As an added benefit, Gunstock Walnut planks are made from old-growth wood. Trees that produce old lumber offer even more natural properties that make this flooring unique:
- Added density: While walnut is already hard, old-growth walnut is harder. This lumber has tight growth rings that make these boards harder to mar.
- More appeal: With tighter wood grain and more years to develop character, old-growth walnut hardwood flooring has a lot more to take in.
- Old-growth trees grow fewer in number every year. With wide-plank walnut floors made from this rare lumber, you'll be preserving a piece of history in your home.
