I thought it was an ok deal?
3 Attachment(s)
went to the gun show with my dad and uncle yesterday i dont know why i went to the show because i picked up this 700 from my uncle before we left.

my uncle used to be a sniper for his LEO agency and has since gotten out of it. for some reason he wanted to get rid of this remmy for cheap.

Remington 700
.308 win
24" heavy free floated barrell
Glass bedded action
heavy fiberglass stock (i dont know who makes the stock or if its a Rem product)
Harris Bipod
leupold one piece mount/leupold rings/Leupold Vari X 3 4.5-14X50 with tatical knobs
approximately 4-5lb trigger:mad:
120 rounds of federal gold medal match 168gr sierra BTHP match
alluminum locking hard case

Grand total. $1,000 :cool:

That is a great deal on a pretty good stick. Good looking rifle you got there brother. The scope alone would probably run $700.

Where's my Range Report? :D

Tell you what. Since I'm such a nice guy, I'll give you $1,001 for it, and pay for shipping too. :D

Nice rifle man. I'm expecting a range report for it once you take it to the range.

Glad to see there is another scrounger in the group. Nice lick there my friend. How's it shoot?

i paid 400 for my rem 700 in .30-06 at a pawn shop, but the scope that came with it wasn't near that nice (took it off and i'm having iron sights installed now and will use them as a backup and have a nicer scope mounted when i'm done with it) and the stock was a more mass produced factory one. also, mine had no ammo with it and i bought my bi-pod and case separately.

with the nicer stock and nicer scope and goodies and ammo too i'd agree that you did ok on that one.

i would say that barrel and bolt handle look a little dry from the pic, but that's no biggie. a little oil rubbed in would fix that. i may be wrong however, it could just be how the pic looks.

but nice gun man.

NICE snag Hot! Now get 'er dirty!

That sounds like a pretty decent deal to me. :cool:

Nice addition you got there.

Hot Sauce NARC 10-26-2009 08:41 PM

thanks guys.

ill be working on a range report this weekend

it is all dried out and dusty....uncle probably hasnt shot it in 10 years

my uncle claimed that after the first cold bore shot it was capable of 1/4 moa but we will see it has a bit of a heavy trigger.

depending on what happens with my savage (on its way back to the factory) i may just swap out scopes since i like magnification, and IMO the bushnell elite i have on my savage is alot clearer and brighter.

Hey Narc, if that Leupold is that old, box it up and ship it back to Leupold. They will take it apart, clean up the inside, reseal with new gas, all for free. They have a true lifetime warranty. You'll get almost a brand new scope out of the deal. Leupold rocks that way....
