I took the forend off my Remington R B. There was no bluing under the wood, looked almost like it had been in the white originally or bright metal, sort of patina now. I know some rifles were not blued at
that time, was this one of them? I saw a ARG R B on Gunbroker, lots of blue which looked newer than the rifle.What was the original finish on this RB?

The Argentine RBs originally had blued barrels and color case-hardened receivers. With age and wear the colors fade and the receiver looks gray, or patinaed. Examples rebuilt in Argentina were blued over this case-hardening, which generally results in a mottled blue.
