Default 6 mil on auction

Are my poor old eyes deceiving me or is that a lot of active rust visible on some of the internals?

Yep..seems like they don't know how to properly oil a rifle after a fresh repark. Thats all from inside the oprod...falling down into the action...

Not the first I've seen this way...but seriously... thats your "auction" pic???

Have been seen on some Specials and seems like a reaction from the fresh park and the metal of the oprod spring. I can't imagine that when assembled, they put a rusty oprod spring in a rifle.

Might be a clean spring but there may have been rust inside the op rod. Once the spring moved in it, it would have knocked some loose. If the receiver and other parts were damp, the small particles of rust would have gone to work straight away.

So, is this a serious issue, or easily correctable issue

Seems to me an ODD choice of parts for a 6 mil receiver. Old SA parts with an PB Italian trigger housing?

Special Grade really, not a Service Grade for sure.

Definately rust, but.... umm looks like wood shavings too from a oprod rubbing on the stock?

It has been posted that it will clean up if oiled and cleaned and re-oiled/greased. I believe even the spring will clean up. No permanent damage

Don't forget, the repark is outsourced and not done in house at CMP. It appears there is a problem with the post repark process with some as this issue does seem to show up on the oprod/spring from time to time.

I have an old cleaning rod and a worn bore brush I use to scrub out the op rods, then spray oil inside them and drain overnight. Every rifle new to me gets this. Then grease the spring as normal and no problems.

You’d be surprised the crap that comes out.

Is it really rust or is it just wood shaving from the op rod rubbing against the stock. If you look at the op rod, the streaks of wood shavings (rust) follow the front to rear movement of the op rod.

Actually looks a bit like sawdust from attempting to fit the bloated boyds driftwood to the rifle.

In fairness I think they should have a talk with the individual in charge of the photos in general.

These are high dollar auctions, and deserve a bit more care in presentation.

Rust on the spring only. The stuff near the oprod drawing number is definately an UNFITTED stock with the oprod "self fitting" the stock

On a whole. CMP is sliding in quality. Grade creep to the low side is apparent. That hackberry crap was foisted on us with a "stealth" update on the description.

Now auction quality is slipping. We have a six mil receiver with pretty old parts (excepting a PB trigger housing) with an obviously ill fitted stock and active rust inside the oprod. On top of that the description is dead wrong. Its evident that this is just a 6 mil special grade.. not a service grade.

I mean I get it, the stuff coming in is getting worse and worse. But hold true to your grades. If stuff is sold at lower grades or without wood. Suck it up and grade it and price it accordingly.
