Re: 1943 Remington Rand

Re: Rebuilt Garand

Bolts are not supposed to be blued. There is a wide range of parkerizing colors depending on numerous factors. If it is parkerized, I would say it is normal.
Here is a Springfield bolt that fits your description.

Re: Price check on an M1903

Prices aren't going down. You worried about that $1500 price and "thinking" of mounting a Unertl?
That scope and work will be another $1000
