    OBBB5,

    I don't know what is going on with your rifle. I do know that sometimes the coating applied to a new rifle will have little spots that look like rust. It is always good to totally degrease a new rifle (after pulling the barrelled action from the stock, of course), and put on a thin coat of Remoil. If the spots aren't easily removed, or have some pitting behind them, then it is definitely rust, and I would be pissed.

    Yeah I could see surface rust which is no big deal. We need pics!

    When ever I obtain a new or used rifle, the first thing I do is remove the barreled action from the stock and give it a Barricade silicone bath. That stuff is awesome!! It eats any surface rust off, and provides a protection layer from future moisture. It also makes the action buttery smooth, anyone familier with it.

    oops, time for a new thread.

    Wow. That is just surface rust which is no big deal but is still not acceptable for a new rifle from a reputable manufacturer.

    No kidding. I would be pissed if that were my gun. That is just poor customer service if you ask me.

    Surface rust on the follower spring? Not unheard of in a new rifle, but if they sent you back your old stock, it is likely they returned the follower, follower spring, magazine housing, bottom metal, and trigger all from your original rifle. That wouldn't be a big deal to me, as they are mild steel springs and get some surface rust if you look at them sideways.

    Were there were spots of rust on the new barrelled action? That would be disconcerting.
