Wear pattern developed rear of the ejection port on the receiver just below where the top cover sits on top of the receiver. Not real worried about the wear pattern. I can’t imagine what is causing this. I don’t think the top cover can drop down that far but then again I just don’t know.


Please advise,



R/s, Hiller………

Did it just develop during the time you had it, or was it there when you bought it?
It looks like the wear from mounting a optics mount.

I thought it developed from my use which was a head scratcher because I’ve not mounted anything that would wear the finish off the receiver in that area. After looking at some older pics I think the wear might have been there all along.

It’s hell getting old and becoming forgetful!

I feel you.

I'd hit it with a little cold blue if it was mine. Followed up with a light coat of oil, then it would hardly be noticeable, if at all. :)
