Re: rough remington 700 action
I would not recomend sanding on the rails .
If his remingtion is one of the matt black actions with the bolt also with the black finish
this is the problen.
All of the sps's have this type of finish and it needs to be removed by polishing or jeweling.
I prefer to jewel the bolt because it looks better and holds oil better.
If he leaves it allone it will get better with wear (Break In ).
