    No they may be asking for them like that and that is fine no big deal but they should have mentioned that to you before you bought it or at least put it in the description. When it comes to military or LEO if they tell the builder what they want then they don't hesitate.

    I agree with you, as they should aware civilian customers, in order to avoid missunderstandings.

    In this video, at 00:53, you can see the tonality differences, similar as mine.

    Greetings from Spain, and thank you everyone for your responses.

    I know this is a necrofile but I would never inspect anything with an led flashlight. You can look at a beautiful milsurp park finish and have a stroke when you see the defects and rust that aren't visible under normal lighting. Also, my good friend does parking for a living and he makes sure he moves the parts in the tank while they're cooking or else you'll get the same blemish that you have. I believe Machinist91 is on point.
    As a final not, that is a working rifle and not a collectible.

    I live in Northeastern BC, Canada, and just for info here is the price from a local gunsmith for Ceracote finishing a rifle:

    Cerakote finish – Tough, baked on ceramic finish. Very durable, highly resistant to weathering. Several colors are available, this price is for a whole rifle. Smaller jobs may be less. $300.00

    My M40 can end up looking a bit like the park on the video.
    A light coating of RemOil (or any gun suitable oil) makes it go away.

    BTW parkerization by itself is not much of a protectant--a lot better than nothing
    Parkerization with oil wiped over it is an excellent protectant.

    My M40 only looks that way when the parkerization has been cleaned with lacquer thinner and allowed to dry.

    Interesting. I always rub a light synthetic grease thoroughly into the action and barrel metal once it has been out in rain or snow hunting. Perhaps this is why I never saw what was described as you mentioned.

    Yup, I kept my barrel lubed with RemOil and it always had an even sheen.

    Parkerizing is designed to hold oil. Its not a finish on its own.

    I was looking to purchase one of these Police MLR Remington 700 and did notice that the stock had some unusual blemishes and sort of scratches (NIB) the metal looked poorly done. The answer that I got from the dealer was that this being a police firearm the finishing is not top notch, however, for the markup that these rifles have they better be perfect!!!.

    I would contact Remington, they must be able to service you even in Spain.
