There is a serious difference between taking care of a gun and sportierizing one. It is perfectly ok to clean rust off, touch up spots with some cold blue, get the cosmoline out of the stockā€¦ things like that. it really is ok and it is for the benefit of the rifle.

If you take a hack saw and cut the barrel and drill and tap the receiver and put a brand new nikon scope with a bent bolt on, that is a little bit different. Even then, you have two of them and these things are dirt cheap and there is a nearly endless supply of them, so its not really an issue even if you did modify them.

If you did the above to an '03 springfield, that would upset people a little bit more.
There is no such thing as a stupid question, only stupid people.
