    Did you pick it up from the importer or did they mail it to you?
    In my country, accordding to the laws, every weapon is sent to the police station first, before being delivered to the buyer. There is no chance to see it at the shop before being sent.

    Next time you purchase a firearm I would ask the dealer to send you photos of the serial number and of the gun itself. That way you know what you should be getting. As for your discoloration issue, flat black BBQ paint works well.

    You disliked the finish but the result was great? I'm not sure I follow.

    This may be a crazy question but do you have a gunsmith in your area?

    Yes; gunsmiths are very common in my country, as there are many hunters and target shooters. There are several ones that apply Duracoat and Cerakote to weapons, in a professional way.

    But this morning, during a match, I have been told by a police sniper, that IT´S NOT A DEFFECT, but...A SORT OF CAMOUFLAGE, in order to avoid reflections in a police sharpshooter rifle, from the underside of the barrel. I have been shown several ones and every of them had the same feature. IN_CRE_DI_BLE!!!!!!!!!!!

    Please correct my english, if I writte the wrong way.

    Greetings from Spain.

    Mine never had anything obvious as you described. Decent parkerized finish, however in the future I plan to have it Ceracoated because I prefer that finish. Very tough as well. I plan to have a local gunsmithing shop to the work.

    I don't think that is camouflage that's a misshap during assembly. A local good gunsmith can fix that in a few hours.

    I mean: I applied duracote to a Dragunov, whose ORIGINAL FINISH I didn´t like, and after applying duracoat, the result was superb.

    Maybe, one day I will send it to a gunsmith to be either Cerakoted or duracoated. There are several gunsmiths that work with Cerakote and Duracoat in my country.

    But every Police I have seen today...HAS THE SAME FEATURE. Is Remington sending all the deffective ones to my country? I would not say it´s not the case...
