No, They are impregnated with resin under high pressure and are very stable and weather
resistant. They are also very stable due to the many different ply's with the grain running in
many different directions.
I have replaced all but a few of my synthetic stocks because they are better balanced, and
as I said very stable (More so than a lot of synthetic stocks) they have the feel and looks of
wood and they dampen the harmonics much better. with out exception all of the rifles stocks
that were replaced improved the accuracy and consistency.
They are also not as noisy as the synthetics when scraped by brush and weeds while hunting.
There is still nothing that looks better than a fine piece of wood but for performance the
laminate is hard to beat.
Just my opinion
