Default S400 Walnut stock finish??


I bought a brand new AA S400 walnut stock from AA two weeks ago. The finish was very flat and the stock had a strong woody smell to it, as if there was next to no finish on it ??

I've been shooting it (sometimes in damp air) Today I noticed that the butt is starting to get a little rough. It really needs a quick wipe over with 800grit paper. But surly a brand new 250 stock should not need refinishing after only two weeks ?? If I'd dropped it in a canal and left it there for the afternoon, I could understand. But it's never been 'wet' or even damp, kept in a new gun bag in the house.

Do I need to get busy with 800grit and a pot of satin 2K laquer ??

Is this normal on AA walnut stocks?
