Remington 700 30-06 (Whoops, actually a 770) Login/Join

I found what appears to be a deal on a NIB Remington 700 in .30-06 with an unknown-brand optic. I have a Savage Trophy Hunter XP in .308, but I don't know anything about the Remington.

What would be a reasonable price here? Anything I should know?

Replace the stock, barrel and trigger and you could have a shooter. Possibly true up the action.

I personally value 700's at action price, especially if you want "good deal" price.

All that being said, I bet your Savage outshoots it.

I don't hold newer Remington rifles or shotguns in very high regards anymore. Older ones, yes.
I'm with War on this one. If you can get it at a good price, do some work on it.

I've got an older (made in the 80's) Model 700 ADL that shoots like a dream. I don't care for a newer one, but I'm sure with a little tinkering you could make it shoot ok. IF the price was right, that is.




Here's to the sunny slopes of long ago.

The only Remington I'd be interested in more would be a 700bdl in 7mag.

I recently sold a pair of Remington 700s. Here's what I found after extensive research and selling prices on GunBroker:

742 ADL Woodmaster, Good-to-excellent: $350-$550, excellent-new: A bit more. Average closing price for completed auctions on excellent-new: $463

700 BDL, Good-to-excellent: $380-$670. Average closing price for completed auctions on excellent-new: $545.

If I'd listed them on GB, those average prices where what I would have asked on buy-it-now.

Whoops. It's a Model 770.

Pass. As in 50.00 is too much.

If it were me, I might consider looking at a Tikka over a 770.

Handled a Tikka Saturday at Allegheny Gun Works and I liked it. I thought it was very smooth.
Sadly or maybe not, a Glock 17L caught my eye and that's on its way instead of a rifle.

Lol, I dunno about sadly. There's a reserved place in my safe for a 17L some day.

But if it were down to the 770 as "a deal" or a Tikka for fair, I think I would opt for a fair price on a Tikka.

Guys, I am only considering the Remington because it is ridiculously cheap and in a caliber I don't have. I already have a Savage in .308.

I have held a Tikka and it is a very nice rifle, but it isn't what I was inquiring about.

I like to keep an eye on local Armslist offerings, when looking for used. Of course one has to use 'due diligence' if going through with a possible purchase.

I was half joking at 50.00, literally. Its a 100.00 gun. If you want it to own a rilfe in caliber you dont own then go for it. I bouhgt a single shot Savage 12g for 65.00 becasue it was 65.00. I didnt need it or want it, but it was 65.00 and I didnt own one already.

They were selling the exact gun at Walmart at one point for 299.00,less on sale.
