Larry-

It's hard without seeing it, but, do you think it could be from the previous owner cleaning/scrubbing that spot with a brush?

I know that I've seen plenty of military weapons parts turned "coppery" by guys cleaning them with the GI issue bore brushes.

They will leave a "stain" behind that is sometimes tough to completely remove.

Re: Rem 700 bolt mystery?

Gary...thanks for responding...I doubt this rifle was ever cleaned by the previous owner...it appears to have been fired very little, and sat idle for a few years and everything was a little rusty...I am brushing it with a bronze brush and solvents & it's coming clean but was reluctant to brush at first due to removing the bluing from the lug, but looks like no big deal...can touch it up easily...this spot is a "splash" of copper looking, very hard stuff which most seem to think is brass chips (I'm not sure myself)...after firing it was "welded" to that spot...really isn't a big deal ultimately, it's just that the rifle appears to be in excellent "low mileage" shape and I just wanted to get it completely clean... thanks again, Larry

Re: Rem 700 bolt mystery?

I agree with fifty driver I had a model 700 in 7mag that did that and turned out the ejecter had a sharp edge and when you fired it and extracted the case it would shave a little brass from the head. I never had the firing pin stick but the ejecter would stick after a few shots but after 60 or so rounds it went away. I guess the edge wore off. I just kept the bolt face clean and kept shooting. Good luck with!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
