Default Model 7 price check?

Looking to sell my Remington Model 7 Stainless Steel .308 Rem caliber (No J lock) mounted on a McMillan molded in GAP camo stock with factory installed machined pillars & Pachmyer Decelerator recoil pad. In excellent condition. Included are Leupold rings and bases & sighted Leupold Vari-X II lightweight 3-9X33mm scope.

This is the gun I wanna buy...what would be a steal on this rifle? I offered $950. He said no.

What are you willing to go to. SS Model 7 have gone stupid in the price over the last 4-5 years. I've seen bare guns go for what you offered. Plus he has another $600 in his stock and plus the scope. I have a handful of the SS Model 7 and wouldn't sell them for $950 but I also wouldn't pay that for them. If you ain't stuck on SS you can buy a brand new matte model for $500 if you shop around. I bought 2 of them in .260 last year for $450 each.

Holy cow! I've got a SS Model 7 with laminated stock in 7mm SAUM, and had no idea it has become valuable! I wanted a shorter rifle than a 700, and a cartridge with a bit more oomph than my model 600, which is a 6mm. I couldn't find a 600 in .350 Remington Mag for a reasonable price, so the Model 7 was kind of my fall back selection.

He's asking $1125 for it. Is that a deal? Saw a brand new ss model 7 with a fluted bolt and a trig job set to 2lbs go for $645. I do wish it was a 260.

Actually that's one caliber that isn't worth much at all. It was kinda a bust. You'd be lucky to get $500-600 out of it. And no I'm not joking. The ones that bring the big money are the .260 and 7-08

I bought my son a model 7 ss in 7-08 a year or so ago and I think I paid $700/$750. I'll buy myself one if I can find it but I'm not paying $900 for one.

Very useful thread. Thanks for the responses from you guys who have offered good info. I know I wasn't the one asking the question, but I'm sure benefiting from the replies!
Pa-in-law has a 7-08 model Seven that I've been trying to beg off of him for years. Such a cool little gun when you're walking a lot through some heavy stuff.

I believe you're right, Splittime; kind of like all my "investments".
I hand load, and wanted more potential than the 7mm-08, so bought the 7mmSAUM. I like the cartridge, and have worked up loads with the 140 Nosler that are very accurate and much faster than I get in either my 7x57 or 7 Ackley Improved.

Now if it was a 7WSM you'd have something.

I bought my son a blued model 7 several years ago and it was $350 new.
Did a lot of research and settled on the 7/08 when everything I read said the .260 was a dead cartridge. Wasn't gonna make it.
Has the .260 rebounded?
