Guns Like firearms themselves, there’s a wide variety of opinions on what’s the best gun.

In my recent gun search I had it narrowed to an Icon as one of my top 3 pics. I think they are great looking guns that should perform well.......but.

I saw 3 icons today at the gun shop.
One was a 30-06 w/weathershield that was used last year as a demo. I had to laugh when I saw 2 places were it has surface rust showing. So much for 50% more resistant to rust than stainless. I'm sure it works, but don't think it's impervious to rusting as the advertising hype had lead me to believe.
When I pointed it out to the guy behind the counter he handed me a brand new Icon in blued/ wood that had signs of surface rusting (in an odd marbled patern) on the bolt. He said the bolts were supposed to be treated in the weathersheild as well.

The Precision hunter I handled showed no signs of rust and was sure a sweet looing rifle for anyone needing a bull barrel 22-250.
