I am not entirely certain as to what is happening but I wanted to ask. On a Remington of mine, which still has the factory HS Precision stock, there have been forming these light burn-looking marks on the stock itself. How is this happening? Well, my real question is can anything be done about it? My case is not bad at all, as I have seen much worse but just wanted to ask.

There was a posting on this earlier but I couldn't find it.

Thanks.

If you are holding the rifle, (right handed bolt action) it is on the right side by the bolt handle. Like I said mine are not severe but I have seen worse and want to find out if I can prevent this.

I would say something isn't quite right.

The first question should be, why are there burn marks? Are your hot shell casings hitting it? Is gas escaping? Can it be washed off? Are they white marks or char-ing marks?

Well there are no white marks, no charring marks or are any casings hitting this part. As far as the gas escaping, I don't think it is but I can't really tell if it would be. The rifle does fire as it should and it does pretty well so far on paper. It is a very very slight small dark mark. I have seen this before on someone elses rifle but his was ten times worse. At the time I didn't really think much of it because mine was not exhibiting a similar mark but now I see a tiny mark, similar to his.

I appreciate any input guys. I don't want to ruin my rifle, thats all.

Does it look like the material burst, cracked, etc?

If it's not white, it probably wasn't scraped against anything. You would normally be able to tell if gas was escaping (a very bad thing ;) ) and it is not a burn mark.

It it deep, is it jagged? Is it straight?

Sub,

Basically it looks like the finish was heated or treated and looks discolored or different from the rest of the stock. Slightly darker looking. The small area lies in front of the bolt and behind the chamber.

I suppose a photo would help. I'm going to keep on shooting and see if it gets worse. If it does then I will post multiple photos in order for everyone to see what is happening.
