Remington 760 and 7600
 
Is there any difference between a Remington 760 and a Remington 7600? I know of where I can get one and I really want it, the 760 that is but I need to know the approximate value. It is chambered in 30-06 Springfield.

I looked on Remington.com and the 760 is not on there but the 7600 is and they look very similar.

The Remington model 760 is simply an earlier version of the same rifle as the 7600. The stock/finish is different and I'm sorry but don't know the years of manufacture or numbers offhand.

Both are really good rifles.

The 760 I want to buy was purchased sometime in the 60's or 70's and has only been shot a few times. The guy that owned it just recently died of cancer and was a friend of my FIL. I want to buy the rifle but I don't have 800 bucks to spend on it right now. On the other hand I don't want to rip off his widow, I want to give her what it's worth.

Remington.com says the MSRP on a new 7600 is $792.

For $800 It better have some nice glass on it and come with a case of ammo. OR it can be a significant donation to the widow of a friend. A 760 in really good shape is probably worth no more than $400-500.

For more reference check out remington7400.com. They do custom work on the pump and semi-auto Remmys.

I was going to say 300-450$ for the rifle alone.

I was giving benefit of the doubt about pristine condition, but Bear is accurate for better than average condition.

They're pretty good rifles. I've owned two of them over the years. Bear is right on the money. Even with nice glass, I wouldn't pay much more than $400.

760/7600
 
The 30:06 version was only made 1952-1958
$300 would be as much as I would consider in excellent shape white outline basket weave stock. I will tell you that these rifles are pretty light and with heavy weight bullets they will rock your world. 180gr + in the 30:06 there is no give or cushion so expect a mule kick :eek::(
and I'm not recoil shy at all!
Good side is I have never seen one that didn't shoot well with the right load:)

Thanx for the info, that really helps a lot. 300 to 500 hundred makes me feel better about it. Also the rifle is in prestine condition, I inspected it myself the other day. The action is very smooth, there is no rattling anywhere and there are ZERO dings or blemishes of any kind on the stock or action. This rifle looks like it just came off the line. Kenny, the guy who owned it, was a stickler about things being clean (except for his jokes).:D

I'll tell my FIL what you guys said and try and get the money scraped together to get it. Shouldn't be long now cause I just got a raise from $13/hr to $14.50/hr. I'll post some pics when I get home with it.

Also, one the barrel it's stamped "30-06 SPRG", I was assuming "SPRG" meant Springfield. Am I right?
