LRI does bolt fluting and a very quick turnaround with several options for flutes
Thanks

Don't send a Savage bolt to LRI. Per their website:

AS OF 3.13.2018:
LRI DOES NOT FLUTE SAVAGE BOLTS.
IF YOU SEND US A SAVAGE BOLT IT WILL NOT BE FLUTED. WE WILL SEND IT BACK AND YOU WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.
THIS IS NON NEGOTIABLE.

I had noticed this in the past and wondered why so strongly worded myself. Clearly they don't want to work on Savage bolts. Just leaves more work for those who aren't as biased. OTOH I suspect that their legal footing is pretty shakey if you paid up front and they did no work. Return shipping, sure. The rest? I seriously doubt it.

Acetone maybe? Otherwise vinegar and HCl acid are options to remove it without abrasives. You would have to soak it for an extended amount of time in vinegar. With vinegar and acid it will strip the black too. HCl has a chance of eating away and pitting the steel so if you’re not sure, it’s best to go another route.
Left my bolt in vinegar for cleaning and forgot about it. 4 days later had to replace main bolt body. All the hard chrome was gone.

Any idea how to remove this savage lettering from this model 10 action? I do not want to ceracoat it and I want to keep the bolt black and just remove the lettering. Does anyone know how savage applies the lettering?

first of Savage like other rifle manufacturers laser etches their logos and other things on blackened rifles. so cold bluing would be your best bet. rebluing/phosphating the whole gun/bolt body.

Buck, LRI does do great work, you are not wrong there, they just won't flute a Savage bolt. I don't understand why, I've been doing them for years. They are harder material and wear tooling faster but the answer is to charge accordingly.
 

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
