dirty bolt face? oxidation?
Hi , had a question, I bought a savage LRP in a 260 rem I looked at the bolt face (before I shot it) and it looked like it was covered in crud, I preceded to clean it Gingerly with some rem oil and a tooth brush but no go, I ended up using some 0000 steel wool , bronze brush, and a little corner of a scotch brite pad again gently, to clean off what looked like rust or surface staining, its mostly clean now except a little near the ejector pin. I called savage and they said never use anything to clean it, well too late, have I damaged the face or what,? its hard to believe it came from the factory looking like an old used gun there are no visable stratches on the bolt face. whats next if anything? thanks Scott
