I'm with Ronald Schaefer, why would you do that? I own several Savages as do my wife and 2 daughters, all of our Savage rifles produce MOA. I am a proud owner of several Savage rifles and several others of different makes and models, they each have a sweet spot and I'm proud to own them! I'm just saying I dont understand the need to deface a productive rifle!

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.
That would have been an acceptable explanation, better than nothing at all.

Your comment is a case of you thinking you know my motivation for removing the “Savage” lettering on the bolt body. I prefer a slick clean looking rifle. I would never put a sticker on my truck of a brand I like or a sticker on my rifles. My motivation is not that I’m “not proud,” or anything like that, to own a savage. I asked a simple question on how to remove the lettering, if you don’t know how to do it or have a constructive comment on the subject then keep it to yourself.

Thanks for all the good comments. So it looks like the options are:
1. beadblast/sandblast the bolt body and ceracoat/duracoat it
2. Flute the bolt
3. Buy a new bolt body

appreciate it.

1 and 2 are what I have done on my original response. For your #3 consideration, "if" your time and budget allow...

He mentioned the Glade bolt handle...I added one myself. Nice upgrade for $68.00...still don't have my Savage Shooters bolt sleeve...pain in the rear to order from them...
