I am very curious on this one. I went to cabelas tonight just for something to do and see what the bargain cave had and made my way into the gun library. My store puts all used firearms in the library instead of the used racks and there sat a mint Savage model 111 in 6.5x284 Norma. This thing was mint, muzzle break, adjustable cheek rest, etc. $399! I seen a mint Remington 700 wood stock with scope for the same price a few months ago but then you see beat up old Marlin model 30's that look like they went through a wood chipper for $500+. Anyways, how do stores figure out how much a firearm is worth when they buy it or sell it?
