    Just pulled in a Remington 510 that a client wants restored. Got everything disassembled but for the receiver insert. It looks to be made of aluminum and to my eyes looks like it may be sweated in (soldered). My question is: What is the best way to remove it? I need to prep the barrel and receiver for rust bluing and I want to clean and polish the insert (for better feeding)..

    Thanks

    You have separated the barrel and receiver?
    It is not welded or soldered in place. I can not remember whether they are pinned or just pressed in place but it seems they were just pressed in.

    The barrel and receiver are still together. After looking at it again and doing more research, it "appears" that the insert and barrel share the same two pins and once removed, I can simply pull the barrel and remove the insert.. I'll post some pictures once I pull everything apart.

    yes sir that is correct. once the barrel is removed then the insert can be removed.

    Looks better than my original and mine is in nice shape. Where did you get it, how much $$. My 510 looks gr8 but the barrel is almost in the white.

    Got the stock from Numrich. Price was $86.39 to my door. It appears to be brand new and will need final fitting. The trigger guard screw holes have not been drilled. It came with a new butt plate and screws though and the wood is very smooth like it's had a light sanding. I plan to slow rust blue the barrel and receiver. Not sure about the bolt assy. yet. I have seen different finishes from all blued to partial bluing and high polish. I'm also going to re-crown the muzzle and possibly true up the bolt face if I can. Both surfaces are rough. I will post fresh pictures as I go along.

    I don't mean to go off on a tangent, but I got an email from Numrich this morning and noticed they have a 510 bolt assy up for auction right now. Just thought I would mention it in case anyone is looking for one.

    New photo updates

    I've got everything ready for rust bluing and final finishing for this rifle. I had to order screws for the trigger guard since whoever did the "repair" on the old stock also decided to use two different types and sizes of wood screws to secure it to the stock.... :rolleyes: Hope you like what you see.
