At the gun shop there is a 1955 SC 35 rem. The rifle has been used, but what bothers me is some one scratch their initials on the receiver. What can be done to remove them? Ser# M14***

About the only thing that you can do is polish it out and re-blue that spot.

I wouldn't worry about any scratches if the rifle is in good shape and the price is right. A 35 Rem chambered 336 is a mighty fine hunting gun. Put it to good use!

It might work to your advantage if you can talk the dealer down even more because of it. I'd certainly use that line of dickering with him. Are they real deep or what? Just scratched in like with an awl or deep like from an engraver?

I have a 55' 336rc .35rem, M-series,
it was my first deer rifle and remains one of my most prized possessions.

It has ballard rifling and factory d&t receiver for scope mount.
I had later learned that these two features ran together during a very short span, less than a year..

How 'bout some pics??

What Dave Bulla said is what I would go by. Sometimes it will get you a better deal and if you are like some of us and love to do simple restoration work, you get your self a project to look forward to. Are you could change your name to match those initials. ;D

Depending upon the location and the size, consider stipling over them using a spring loading center punch in some sort of geometric pattern or design.

I fix a 303 Lee rifle that someone did the same thing. I sanded it down and used cold blue on the area I sanded it. You can't tell or see unless I told you I did the repair.

My two cents.

Good luck and enjoy your rifle. :)

I saw a Remington M660 in 222 at a gunshow recently for a very good price. Started thinking that there was
something wrong with it when I spotted the DL# engraved on the reciever.
