mp38/40 wooden furniture?

I have seen pictures of the MP40 with wooden furniture but believed it was all-metal. Were there different MP models? ... wii-assets

The furniture on the MP38 and MP40 is Bakelite, an early plastic. It could be black or a dark brown which, in those computer textures, can look a bit like wood. There is also the MP41, which is the same firearm housed in a wooden stock similar to that of the MP18.
