I recently purchased another Remington model 514 and when I took the bolt out of the rifle, I noticed that just behind the bolt face on the under/lower surface of the bolt body it has some fairly significant scarring/sratches in the metal of the bolt body. The scarring is only on about the first 1/2 inch just behind the face of the bolt, it does NOT extend all the way back the entire length of the bolt body. I think I can take a dremel tool and put the bolt in a vise and smooth out the scratches. But does anyone know what might have caused this ? I am sort of theorizing that some previous owner of the rifle did not know that they needed to pull the trigger in order to take that bolt out of the back of the receiver and that they forced/jerked the bolt out of the back of the gun with the trigger mechanism not being properly lowered and the trigger mechanism had been scarring the bolt surface as it was forceablely pull backward over the trigger. Do you think this is likely what caused this scarring or is there something else that might have caused this ? Thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
