YES! any one of them will devalue the gun because then the gun will no longer be original. you would have a worthless pice of junk if you alter it in any way. do NET stain the stock. do NOT blue the bolt. do NOT mount a scope on it. unless you don't care what the value of the gun is after you do those things.
