Yes, some were. Pull of the buttplate, laminate will be obvious.

"Orginally"? No-don't think so- but look at how far back "orginal" can be with the M-N.

The laminates I have seen have been on the post war re-arsenaled rifles- stocks were messed up, so when going back thru arsenal, orginal was tossed, new laminate installed.

Some post WWII Mosins did have laminate stocks. Maybe some late war stocks were, but I am not certain. Most of the laminate stocks we are seeing now are post war refurbs placed on the rifles between the 50s and 70s. If you have a 1939 Izhevsk Mosin-Nagant with at laminate stock, it is an original Soviet stock but was not on the rifle in 1939.

I didnt buy it, ive seen it at the sporting goods store for months. They get the normal ones in from time to time and there cheaper. I was just wondering about this one.
