well it seems remingtons have rizen in value in the last 6months.is yours a adl or bdl model?retail for a new one is around 650.00-to as high as 800.00,,used i have to say 300-400+ or -,,and trade in at a shop or gun show 250-375.00 ,,scopes are funny things and don't seem to sell the gun so dealers don't usually give a preminum just because ya got a good scope,,sometimes your better off selling it with a cheap or no scope at all and selling your scope seperate,,that said your scope is proably worth around 75 and up,

The Remington is in " Execellent " condition with really nice grain in the stock
The crown on barrel is good / No problems

How do I tell if it's a adt or bdt model ??
All the barrel says is " 7 MM Mag ,Stainless steel "
The bluing on gun is 98 %

Thanks for the help guys !

the ADL has a blind magazine box,,while the BDL has a hindged floorplate,,in other words ADL you have to cycle the bolt to eject unfired shells,,BDL you can open the floorplate to remove the shells, The BDL will be the higher valued of the 2 models,,sometimes it may have nicer checkering than a ADL ,,same guns just ones fancier.

Thank you Kurt
For all the info.
Then I have the ADL
From looking up the date code , It's from '71
And a real safe Queen

Would asking $ 500 be too much when selling this one ???

well heres a rule of thumb,,always ask more than you want for it.. ya can always go lower if someone is intrested....most dealers buy as cheap as they can so they can make money or why do the work and time trying to resell it..like i said before remington as well as many other guns right now have rizen quite a bit on the retail level..last year at this time a new one was around 500 and up,,now there close to 650 and up,,for most of there 700's and i've seen retail prices as high as 850 on some variations,,looking at your rifle from the pics i don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to get 500 for it ..but a dealer will laugh at ya if ya ask that because he figures thats close to what he'd ask for it and not much for him to make so he can't give that in most cases,,if your really thinking about selling try an add in a local paper or one of the free ad papers and mabey list it at 550-600 or bo.. once someone comes to see it it shouldn't be a hard sale because it looks very nice,,ya might even try some of the for sale forums like here or on other boards,,i've sold on these before and have done very well and there usually free to sell,,if your contemplating an online auction then you have to figure in the dealers cut and expencices incured while selling, along with final value of items sold price,ya might want to check out an auction site like auction arms or gunbrokers and try doing a search on remington 700,,or 700 remington, or even remington,and see just what the public is paying for them before you sell it.. might be more and it may be less,,but i have seen a decline in sales at a local shop on sporting arms since the first of the year,,everybody is panic buying ar's and ak's thinking there going away and the sporting rifle market is slow right now ,,the caliber is good on yours and the redfield scope is a bonus to a private individual,,but notso to a dealer..so your best bet is a private sale at those numbers,,right now most states hunting seasons are over or closeing for the year so hunting rifles will be slow sales unless your giving it away,,so if ya got a little time to look and check other rifles online it will give you a better idea on current values and you'll know the prices people are willing to pay,,hope that helps ya some..

WOW , Curt ..
I'm impressed with your knowage and honest answers
You answered all my questions and even some I didn't have time to ask
At this time I have a private party that wants it real bad ( Just the Cal. he wanted ) Father-in -law who used to sell cars would say "" there's an **** for every seat "" and we kicked around the $ 500 price .So I think this will work out to make both happy !!

I know what you mean about the gun sales right now and can't belive what people are paying for some of the "Black Rifles "
I just want a WWII era Garand to keep my '43 Winchester Carbine company
and I'll be happy

Thanks again for all the help .Ron Hemet Ca.

i always try to be honest with values,,it makes me mad when a dealer trys to give you 10 cents on the dollar for your stuff and wants 50 cents on the dollar if your buying..,,and alot of people look at the values books and think i'll get that for my gun,,price guides are just that "guides"they give you a balpark range to think about,,i really think guides should show trade in values like car value guides do ..it would proably be more relistic prices in the long run.. and people wouldn't get there hopes up.. just to be shot down,, good luck with your rifle
