Probably from dry firing
Yes, it looks like a lot of dry firing
Probably, if a round feeds ok.
I’d still shoot it
No problem.... stick around, we’d be glad to have ya
Could be from the extractor. Doesn't matter, just shoot it.
Just dont dry fire. Rem teens were not supposed to be dry fired. They were and still are an excellent rifle.
Not “normal”, but not really something that requires any attention unless you have issues chambering rounds.
No it is not normal wear but not surprising. The chamber mouth is very thin there and it has the hardened extractor rubbing on it every time the action is opened or closed. Blown up big in the picture makes it look bad but it is not. Just shoot it and worry about something else.
Could be the extractor is just a little weak from age or could just be some crud under the extractor that just needs to be scraped off.. I’ll have to dig mine out to take a look at the setup.
I am not so sure it’s from dry firing. Dry firing will damage the firing pin rather than the chamber. And it could mar one spot, not several. Anyway the rifle is ok to shoot.
If interested mark the firing pin with bright paint and dry fire just once. You will see then where it hits the chamber. Use dummy rounds aka snap caps in the future.
PS. Is that surface rust? The rifle may have been neglected. If it was mine I’d take the bolt apart for cleaning. There may be rust or crud on the inside. It’s a worthwhile project if the bore is good. The rest can be fixed.
Thoroughly clean the extractor and under, then shoot again. Bronze brush, carbon solvent. For ammo try the CCI mini mags, they are good quality. If you still get FTE, replace the extractor.
