    Having several Mosin-Nagants with standard hardwood stocks, I'm thinking of getting one with a laminated stock (to kind of complete the collection). Compared to regular wood, what were/are the advantages of laminated furniture? I'm guessing durability and cost are the two primaries. Or did the Russians go to this for some other reason?

    The laminated stocks are stronger, plus they just look so cool. :cool:
