    OBBB5,

    It is hard to tell from the photo, but that doesn't look like rust. Did it clean off easy?

    Looks like stainless steel as well.

    it looks like they tried to clean it off before they sent it to me and these are the pits. i could be wrong though.

    Bitterroot,
    it didn't clean off, but i didn't try real hard either. I'm positive it was rust, i even showed a few friends before i called remington to get a few other opinions. I just kept getting more mad as i found more spots all over this "new" gun. I may be making a mountian out of a mole hill but since i bought a brand new gun that is where i was holding my expectations. Either way i sent it back and i told them i wanted a refund. It looks like my origional purpose for this thread (mounting a base) will have to be postponed for a little while.

    That is a real bummer OBBB5,

    I don't know how it happened, especially being stainless steel, but on the bright side ...

    You get to go gun shopping.

    I hope it turns out better the next time.

    Thanks Bitterroot. I'm not sure how it would happen on a stainless gun either, when i talked with remington they told me this gun was on backorder and it would be months before it could be replaced so im wondering if they tried to fix mine with a barrel and action that was just laying around or something or maybe used.
