    Remington 700 bolt handle color

    My brother-in-law just gave me his Apr 1964 made Rem 700 7mm Mag that he bought new when he got out of the Navy.

    It has a bronze colored bolt handle that is original to the gun. I have looked at hours of pics of 700's and have not seen any other example of this.

    Both the round and the rifle design were only 2 years old at the time he purchased it and he never had a thought on it. It was his deer rifle since new and he no longer hunts deer.

    Can anyone here help with this, I am more comfortable here than on other boards. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the info Hookeye. This one has not been reblued and came the color it is now. Sounds like it was a recurring problem...
