Wood to metal fit on today's doubles

Below are two pics I took from the internet. The rifle is a Krieghoff I believe. Note the wood to metal fit. It sucks! modern makers, both doubles and other rifles and shotguns, state the proud wood is to allow future refinishing. I don't buy it! The vintage rifles has super tolerances in the fitting of the wood and this fit lasts through today. Refinishing does not equate to sanding so the wood does not have to be fitted above the metal surface. To expand, today's guns and rifles mirror the attitude of mediocre acceptance in this cheap throw away society. On the forums and catalogs, synthetic (plastic) stocks show zero workmanship as does CNC made metal work. Long live vintage double rifles from the UK!
