Found a Remington 700 Mountain Rifle chambered in .257 Roberts yesterday. From the date code on the barrel it is a '91 model. These were only made from '91-'94.
Gun is in very good condition. Bluing is every bit of 95% with only a couple of tiny imperfections. Wood has a lot of scratches but they are only in the finish and not into the wood.
Has factory seal over the trigger adjustments. Yes, it still feels like 6-7lbs.
Comes with Leupold 1-piece base and rings.
What would be a fair price on the east coast?
Many thanks!

ive got a Rem 700 Mnt rifle in 7mm Mauser from 1992 and love it.
I think it was around $400 new.
Light,with a longer barrel, carries very well.
Id snap it up if it was in V-G condition or better, it might be the perfect light rifle.
Mine is a long action, I can load bullets to touch rifeling no problem

i'd give $400-500-ish for it, if it is real wood and not laminate or synthetic.

that the rifle was only made for a couple years means nothing to me, same-same w/ the cartridge, and the bases (especially because the first thing i'd do w/ those, especially on a mountain rifle, is pitch 'em).

the 700 mountain rifle is a fantastic feeling rifle, though!

Anyone else?
Yeah, I think I will go with 2-piece bases adn use the existing rings.
May save another ounce!
I love the Mtn Rifles too. My favorite is a .280 that I used to kill my first deer with.

I had the stainless/synthetic mtn rifle they offered in 1993 in 280...I paid 430 for it at Dicks and to this day kick myself for selling it.

Hi,

I own one of these in very mint condition. Mine has one tiny mark on the stock and the blued portion of the bolt has just recently started to get a bit of patina to it. Otherwise it's in out of the box condition - which is where I got it back in 92.

Obviously since I had owned it for so long I must like it. I can't even put a price on what it would take to get me to sell it, however, here's an example in pretty poor condition in my opinion that is currently bid up to $750.00

Good luck

that in 257roberts.... I would tell you that it is rare, anything in 257 roberts is going up, since they are barely factory made at all, and anything of that nature for under 700 bucks, you could get that here, in Houston area.

So are we talking a $500-$700 rifle?
Looks to me like something to pick up and hold ontoas the value shoudl only increase over time.
I think I will go ahead and purchase it.
What ammo recommendations do you have?
Thanks for the info and the link!
