Default how much is it worth ?

I have a remington gamemaster model 760 .308 that was handed down down to me from my father who got it as a wedding gift from my mom . I was just wondering what it was worth in fair condition , I use it every hunting season so its a well used gun but by no means is it in bad shape . The finish is wore a bit on the pump but other than that its in great shape . Would it bring the value down if I got the gun re-done ?

Ran a check on completed auctions for one of these over at Gunbroker- selling there for about $350-$450. Of course, folks bid less than what they would pay over the counter to cover shipping and FFL fees. Would add about $100 to sale price. Understand a dealer would not offer that to you- they gotta make a profit.

Default Value is Relative...

You have one great mom. She gave your dad a gift that he could later give to his son. I hope you hang on to that gun and hand it down to one of your own kids or a nephew or niece.

I would not worry about the value of your gun since it sounds like a family heirloom that would not be sold. I'd shoot it and maintain it.

I have an early Browning Sweet 16 in nearly perfect condition. It has one "character mark", a worn spot on the barrel created when my dad used to carry the Sweet 16 across his bicycle handlebars. That mark is staying there for the next 15 or 20 years that I have the gun. At that time, my son gets the gun and he can decide if he likes that "character mark" too (so far, I have not accidentally added any character to the gun myself).

I have the 760 in .270. It has been a great gun. It shoots straight and functions flawlessly. I suggest you keep your 760 and enjoy it.
