    Maybe do the diamond etching on it like they do on rifle bolts?

    I believe I have seen this question, nut I don't remember where. But it involved vinegar, blue scotch brite (fine). Do a search , also look at youtube.

    I use foam-backed 3M sanding pads in grits of 220 and higher. (fine & super fine)

    Go easy at first and don't sand the barrel lugs.

    You can get them at Home Depot/Lowes in the paint dept.

    This is called jeweling. It is simply an overlapping, directional polish.

    It requires a Damaskeening Tool. It's used for decorative polishing of metal with circular polishing swirls. A process also called spot polishing, engine turning or jeweling.

    Below is the tool and my Marlin 60 bolt. the bolt in my press and the finished product.

    Some beautiful rifles there Mr. Lon. :)

    Do you have an XP100 to go with the REM700? I think that was a common chambering for that model.

    Example...not mine:
