    Are the shiny Rem 870/1100/1187 shiny bolts just highly polished bare steel, or are they chrome plated?

    I've been examining a bolt, and it appears to be simply highly polished bare metal on the shiny area, but on the matte areas it looks like it is chromed, not bare metal.

    This bolt is in an 1187 used for hunting, and I'd like a matte black bolt. If it is bare metal, then I'll have it bead blasted and blued. If it is chromed, I'll probably order a "special purpose" black bolt and use the shiny bolt as a spare.

    Yes, fully camo'd head to toe for the older educated coyotes. You don't need this degree of camo for the young dumb ones.

    But hard chromed... I'll order a black bolt and use this one as a spare. Thanks.
