Hello.

New member here! Excited to be a part of this group. I do have a question regarding my rifle. The rifle is cerekoted black from the factory and it looks great.
My question is when i run my bolt the brass kicks out and hits the receiver just enough to nick the coating every time. I know most people will say its a tool and just deal with it and I agree to a point, just wonder if anyone has any similar situations occur and how they have remedied this? I know I could simply put a piece of tape or something like that on it but 馃槙 I want it to look nice. Also I have another 700 in the same stock and it doesn't hit the receiver, I guess could try and change the extractor and see if it alters the throw of the brass.

thanks in advance

Welcome to the group. Maybe a dab of flat black paint?

I would look at the ejector spring and maybe change it out for another. But the brass ejection is tied to bolt speed so it鈥檚 a timing issue.

I am going to try one from Midway, they claim its better than factory.

Thanks

My gunsmith said he likes to see those marks. It shows you鈥檝e shot the rifle. A lot of people start modifying without shooting it first. I felt like you when I saw them, now I see it as normal wear.
