Remington SPS Problem

Hello all, Merry Christmas.

So I got a brand new 700 SPS Varmint from Santa today. Got it all decked out with B&C stock and Zeiss glass and then tried to cycle some rounds through it and I have vertical deep scratches from shoulder to the base of the brass. I found that the feed rails on both sides underneath are really sharp and fed the brass through and watched as the scratches were made. My question is, should I try to polish the rails on both sides and see if I can fix it myself or just send the rifle back to Remington? Will I void the warranty by trying to smooth them off do you think?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Re: Remington SPS Problem

If you feel comfortable enough and think that the edges aren't so bad that polishing will do the trick then you can. I myself am not very "technically inclined" for that kind of stuff. I can figure out the problems with my guns but I have to have someone "fix" it for me.

You have three options:

Fix it yourself if you think you are able.

Send it to a good gunsmith and let him fix it. (What I would do)

Send it back to Remington and let them fix it.

Fixing it myself would be my last option haha. With my luck, I would go to polish the ramp and the barrel would bend and break off.
