    Found a remington model 600 mohawk in 308 win. It came with a redfield 3x9 scope thats very nice. oh also sling and swivels. I have wanted one for awhile and came across it last night. paid 289 out the door so Its not a great deal but I like it.
    cleaned it up and bore and everything else is real nice, stock has a few dings but not bad.
    18 1/2" barrel and rifle is fairly light. I wounder what the twist is on this?
    Can not wait to shoot it.

    That is a great deal in my part of the world!!!!! I have looked at the identical set up at $600.00 and it was snatched up before I could make an offer.

    Great find, and a super deal.

    I just got one about a week ago, Rem 600 Mohawk in 243, with a Redfield 3-9x40. Traded my ruger charger for it. It is a stinking laser, nice to carry and looks good also. A few aftermarket parts for it.

    Boyds has new solid walnut stocks for 59.99

    My father has one of these, it is quite the piece. It was his Pennsylvania woods gun. Has not seen any use since he has been in Texas.

    Not sure if it is the "Mohawk" model but it has the vent rib on the barrel. His also wears a Redfield scope and I believe it is in .35 Rem.

    Neat looking rifles, congrats.

    Outstanding find and great price. Those guns were never really appreciated like they should have been. They were before their time. :)

    oh yeah, plus you got a choice little scope on that, another good amount of bucks, used. It should be a 1/10 twist, if it is not that, then it is 1/12.

    SGW42, If a 35 Rem 600, very valuable as very few made. a Couple
    of years back appraisal for nearly new was $1400. I have one bought
    in the early 90s.

    Jon, it sounds to me like you got a pretty good deal.

    Personally, I'm a big fan of the Remington 600/660 carbines.

    Enjoy it...

    While I think you are right, it certainly seems like it should be the opposite, with the Mohawk having a "mohawk" (vent rib) along the top...

    Always coveted one

    Never gotten around to finding one for the price I'd like to pay. They were pretty much a flop and probably should never have got out of the concept stage. Still, they are highly regarded and hard to find.
    Remington tried to revive the concept with their 673 a few years back. I don't think they sold many of those either.

    Sounds like a great deal to me.

    Good disaster rifle.

    I've got a 600 in 243 with a weaver 2.5-8 power and external adjustments via the rear ring. I inherited it from my old man and it really surprised me to find out how high the prices on these things can go. I'd never sell it, but it's nice to know that it's worth something if I ever had to. Mine shoots 80 grain remington loads into an inch @100 yards all day long, but I remember my dad telling me his dad bought one in 308 and promplty traded it off, said it's accuracy was terrible. Wasn't there an issue with the safety on the 600s?

    There was an issue with Remington safeties...

    Most of the .308 Win. Remington M600/660 rifles were quite accurate.

    I also have a Swedish M94 Carbine in 6.5x55mm with one of the early Weaver V8 scopes on it (with the external adjustments and whatall). The scope works just great even now after all these years...

    I had one in .350 rem mag (ouch), a .308, .243 and .222. All but the .350 mag. were tack drivers. I believe the short bbl. had something to do with their accuracy.

    If your trigger is not stamped with the letter "v" you can send it to remington to have the safety checked out. Some had issued with a/d when the safety was somehow manipulated in a certain way. I never had a problem with mine, but then I don't trust any safety.

    Where at on the trigger would a fellow look for the V? On another note the only thing I don't really like is the plastic triggerguard. I've seen ads for a steel replacement but haven't actually had one in hand. I did not mean to infer that all the 308s were inaccurate, I only offered it up as anecdotal. I've still got the "sharkfin" front sight but have never seen the rear, on any of them I"ve come across. That would be neat to have too.

    Congrats.

    Jon,

    I'm not sure how to tell you this, but, EVERONE is just patting your back so you don't feel like you've wasted your money. The 600 is a terrible shooter and all the guys at the range will hang there head and shake it saddly back and forth. I understand your pain and will give you $300 for it!!! :evil:

    Just kidding, great find!! :D I think the twist is 1" in 10 .... have fun with it!!!!!

    I concur very nice find! I have one in 6mm rem. that I was given by my maternal grandfather. Mine also has the same scope on it, may have been a combo? All I can tell you about mine is I can shoot 1" to 1 1/4" groups at an amasing 225 yds off sand bags. Congrats on a great find, I would love to find another one for a shooter. Mine is in about 95-98% so she spends alot of time in the safe.
