Boiling hot water is not necessary, and will blemish or even remove the shellac with which these rifles are finished. Regular water is fine.

...if it's factory then it shouldn't be laminated...
There were indeed factory-laminated stocks. However, I don't think the boiling water is de-laminating the wood; rather, it's just clouding the finish.
No matter how big and tough you are, when a two-year-old hands you a toy phone you'll answer it.
