I own one, I have some unfinished laminate that I'm finishing, and I'm wondering about a few things: 1) Are these basically birch plywood, or is some other wood also used as part of the laminate? 2) What do companies like Remington and Savage typically use as a finish on factory laminate stocks? It looks and feels like plastic to a greater extent than most other wood finishes that I'm familiar with. 3) Do these ever come apart or delaminate? How common or rare is that?
