    Hellow fellow gun owners !:)
    I bought a Remington Model 700 at a gun show,but i really cannot find out it's value !:eek:
    Here's the description:

    It is a stainless steel fluted heavy barrel.
    It has a Tactical black custom composite fiber stock by Precision Stocks that gives it a " floating barrel ".
    The gun was sold to me as " used " for $600 cash.
    But it was never fired,so to me,it's like new !
    It also came with Leupold scope mounts attached to it.
    Any idea what its real worth is ? :confused:

    What calibur did you get?
    Post some pics of your new purchase. Also some pics of your targets with 5 shot groups at 100yds and/or 200 yds.
    I am shooting the 2006 version of the Remington 700 VLS in 223 REM, with a BSA 36T Platinum scope from Midway.
    I had a local gunsmith remount the barrel and rechamber it with a tight chamber. He also installed aluminum pillar mounts. This thing now shoots 1.5" groups at 200 yds.

    Hi Khawk,

    This is where i'm a little confused.
    It's a .308, and i don't see it sold in that caliber ?
    I'm pretty sure that previous owner didn't buy a stock 700 model and then buy the Precision Stock afterwards .
    Plus the bolt has the swirl markings on in the reciever section that only the Serendo models have .
    I'll keep in toch in the near future with shooting range results.
    Thanks again for your helpful input.

    P.S. I;ve got a great thread running in the " Gereral Gun Disscussions " section entitled " A Gun Show " Trick " ".
    It's rather humerous...check it out ! :D

    The Sendero is the long action version of the VS.

    At that price it's probably the older VSF - Varmint Synthetic Fluted. These had the HS stock with one swivel stud on the forend. The finish is matte stainless action/barrel with the jewelled (swirl marks) bolt and were made in .308.

    If it is a more polished stainless with blackened flutes it is the newer VS SF II , also HS stock with 2 swivel studs on the forend. But those are really pricey and that would mean you got an excellent deal.

    You're right my Jedi Knight friend !

    That's what i have !
    It has only one swivel at the forend.
    I do have the H.S.P. stock,and she's free-floating the barrel.
    It's still heavy.
    I just need a Harris Swivel Bi Pod for her and she's ready for the Bulls Eye !:D

    back in the day

    I seem to remember them selling for 700ish new. Things have gone up since then.

    $600 if in nice condition sounds good to me.

    Glad I could help , as far as the actual retail of the VSF I am not sure. I had some old Remington catalogs but I think most of them were thrown out. For actual street price what atblis said sounds about right. I remember looking at VSF in .223 a few years back , and it was around $650 and it migh have even been used. I know the new VS SFII is usually around $850+ online.

    The price for yours is still very good considering the least expensive heavy barrel rifle in Remington's line today is the SPS Varmint and it is usually about $500 with a dull matte finish and a plastic stock. The stock on your VSF is far superior.

    The Harris bi-pod will be a nice addition. Let us know how it shoots. I have owned two heavy barrel Remingtons in .308 (700VS and 700P) and both were great shooters.
