bolt body
 
well this may be a weird question but here goes. has anyone ever tried to change the color of the bolt body on say a remi 700. i just got the sps and the only downside for me is the all black bolt body, weird i know. but i couldn't bring myself to spend a whole lot more just for the bare steel look. but is their a way to get a new bolt body or strip that ugly black paint off or what?

Pacific Tool & Guage makes Remmy 700 bolts. You'll have to contact them to find out what measurements they need to fill your order. A gunsmith can help with these measurements.

You may be able to bead blast the finish away then have it polished.

Here is a video from Midway USA on how to polish a bolt.

will that have any affect on it because of the thickness of the coating

If all you are doing is stripping the spray on finish (not cutting into the metal)I would not worry about it as long as you leave the lug area alone.
