View Full Version : Remington 700 price check...

June 7, 2011, 05:44 PM
I am wondering what some of you would pay for a 20 year old Remington Model 700. I have a friend of the family selling it and asking me what I would pay for it. I wanna buy it, but not sure how much would be a good price. It also has a Leupold Scope on it.

She is also selling...
Remington Model 120 (has a scope)

Remington Model 40-x (has a high power scope)

Remington Model M540xR - Has a All American 8x Perma Center Lyman Scope

Can anyone give me a price check on any of these? They are all about 20 years old.

Just last year I paid 475.00 for a 1983 Remington 700 in .308. Pawn shop rifle. It had a Leupold VX1 in 3X9. I'd estimate the condition at about 90% or better. Rifling is sharp and clear.

If you'd like to check the date codes on those firearms, the link is here (http://www.wisnersinc.com/additional_info/remington_date_code.htm).

It is worth exactly what you are willing to pay for it - no more, no less. Every area is different. You can always go on the auction sites and look at closed auctions

I had a 30 year old LH 7mm 700 BDL for sale for a while with a Weaver US-made 3X9, dies, brass, double rifle hard case and couldn't even get a bite at $600. Also had two stocks - original and B&C camo one

Pulled it off the market.

It will also depends on WHEN it hits the market - right before hunting season sees prices different than right after hunting season

It doesn't matter what it is, anything is worth exactly what a buyer is willing to pay and what a seller is willing to take.........

Is the Rem 700 rifle a ADL or BDL??
What's the condition of the rifle?? Like the bluing,barrel bore,throat erosion,and stock??

Problem as I see it, is that after all the hullabaloo about the trigger/safety problems with the 700's, I would suspect many will be a little gun shy about them. Those made after 2007 had the problem fixed.

Honeslty a gun in that time period in ok shape 250 tops and if it is prestige then maybe 400-450 tops

You can check auction sites, such as gunbroker.com, or Cabelas gunroom site and see what those models are going for. By the way, my understanding is that "40-X" is the designation for a rifle made in Remington's custom shop, and might be a a very special piece. I'd sure take a close look at that one...Topcoat

Rem 700 BDL with a Leupold scope should go for somewhere around $450-$500. A Rem 700 ADL, you can knock about $100 off of that. Either is a good rifle, but the BDL just draw more money.

Rem 40X- Need more info. Depending on the chambering and condition, they sell for $900-$3,000.

Rem 540XR- Again, depending on condition, about $300-$800. The scope alone could be worth another $200. BTW, this rifle is about 40 years old, they were only made for 4 years from 1969-1973. They were the last of the Remington 3-position match club rifles (nice rifles, but no match for an Anschutz). I wish I could find one.

I am not familiar with a Remington Model 120 (Model 12, Model 12A, Model 12C, yes, but not a Model 120).:confused:

I think I answered this thread in a different place.

Find out more details about the 40-x. There might be a lot of interest here if you don't want it.

I am interested in the 40x depending on the caliber and condition.
