Default Remington Classic

I happened to find a local gunshop that has some older Classics in the back room NIB still for sale. I know that some are worth more than others and I see alot of 300 Savages, 221 Fireballs, 8mm,and 30-06's but do these guns carry different values based on which cartridge they are? Im sure they do, but I cant find any of the normal sites that have too many (gun broker, guns america etc.) there is one in particular the 25-06 that I am eyeing up and was kinda wondering what the value from a collector stand point is.

I don't have a dollar figure for you but i would assume that the odd claibers that did not appear in the regular model 700 lineup would fetch a bit more than the ones that did. I did find some information for you.

do you think mid 600's is too much for a NIB one?

If you can get a Classic for $650 you better buy it. I bought one in .300 mag back in 1996 for about $475. I replaced the recoil pad with one from Limbsaver, it is a real shooter. What is the store, I may be interested in buying another classic myself.

The Classic's are nice rifles but I don't think they will bring much of a premium.

I have a pair in 250 and 300 Savage. I love them, the 250 is a tack driver with very little recoil. I load it with 100gr Gamekings for deer and 75gr varmit masters for Ground hogs. It has shot a one hole five round group from a Lead-Sled rest more than once. Even though i love these rifles. I wouldn't give much over 500 for one. You say this shop has several NIB 10-20 year old rifles? If they are having that hard a time unloading them, maybe you can haggle for a great deal.

The Dec. 1 issue of Gun Digest (formerly Gun List mag.) has severeal for sale, all NIB. Two in 8mm @ $550 & $595, one 35 Whelen and one 350 Mag. @ $725 ea. I believe I paid around $575 for my Fireball, the last one I bought. I feel they might drop a little, but not much as used. NIB should only increase from original price, I would think.

I once owned the .257 Roberts and it was an excellent shooter, especially with lighter bullets.
