Any thoughts? It's been sitting in the safe for 9 mo. I don't even have a place to shoot it.
It's worth too much to others for a keeper for me.
I'd price it high and wait. It may take a while till you can find just the right person, but I'd make a profit on it and move on.
Bought it used. Shot it a lot. Hinted hard. Took a lot deer. Moved from Texas to Oklahoma.
Hunt with a .30-30, didn't shoot the Mag for 10 years. A good buddy was retiring and moving to Utah; wanted an elk rifle. I hated to sell it, but I did. I have had seller's remorse, a time or two, but I still don't need it.
Give got a M70 .30-06 and a 700 .260Rem, that use a lot less powder.
I would have to vote; LIST IT at a premium and see what the market will bear.
Enough to fund my next project. Not sure what my next project is yet.
rather part with, list it. I'm sure it will make someone else very happy.
Fun fact: The bolt action Patrick Swayze used in the original Red Dawn was a Ruger M77 with wood stock.
Selling one you don't need, want or use for enough to fund what you do want, need or will use; I call a WIN.
Still, if there's a nagging inside that you want something different then you likely won't be happy with it.
At this point in my career, rifles are not only rifles, but also actions for future barrel upgrades. If it was a R700 pattern, an M70, or a Ruger American, I'd keep it.
I'm keeping my M77 because it's not that valuable, but is an excellent <200y hunting rifle in .270W. . . the sort of rifle you'd happily hand to a relative newb who needed to borrow a deer rifle and might smudge the bluing on the way.
Looks like a Tipton to me.
The value of an alternative desire for a different product doesn’t really influence the market value of a given asset. The rifle has a value based on the rifle it is - what’s that number to you?
I can say I want to sell my Ruger M77 MkII .30-06 for the $7500 I need to fund my next ELR rifle, but I don’t think someone wanting a $500 Ruger M77 MkII in .30-06 will put an extra $7000 value on my hopes and dreams.
