Depending on what finish was originally applied on the stock, it can darken over time. I'd say just wax it with what you've got there and USE IT.

The only other way to get that dark look is to artificially weather it, or refinish in a darker color. All those old stocks had years of people's grubby, dirty mitts handling it, and that's how it turns dark. I'd say a lot of it is dirt that was rubbed in with oil from people's hands.
