I am having a hard time finding information on what this rifle might be worth. I have a synthetic stock Tikka Model 695 in 30.06 with a fairly common bushnell 3x9 scope. What do you guys think this is worth?

I just sold the exact same rifle less scope but with rings for $400. That is what they are going for in the Houston, Texas area.

Thanks for the fast replies guys. $400+ seems to be the general opinion. I'm not sure about the scope, its a fairly typical bushnells, i believe a trophy model? Not to sound too insanely ignorant, but I haven't spent a whole lot of time shooting it. It was a hunting rifle that has since been replaced by something I feel more comfortable with, so it doesn't see the light of day very often.

In my experience, you'd be better off stripping off the scope and selling it separately here or on Ebay.

Scopes seem to add zero the value of a rifle. Not long ago, I bought a Marlin 30-30 with a Bushnell Elite 3200; paid $250 for the package. (Those scopes retail for about $200.)

Also bought another rifle for $245, came with a Leupold Vari-X II. (Old rifle, old scope, but both in great shape.) It's like buying the scope and getting the gun for free.

Amen Nathanael. In some cases, I'll look at a cheap scope atop any given rifle, and in my my mind the entire package is worth less simply because I have to go to the trouble of taking that chinese POS off and then spiking it into a hard surface like a football.

If you're selling, strip it...if you're buying, go for the combos and you'll always seem to get more value out of your purchase as stated by Mr. Greene.

Happy huntin'...
