Default What Remington 700 model is this exactly?

Unfired, brand new. Person wants to trade this for a laptop I own and what to figure out the exact value/model. Person just keeps saying standard 700 model.

Thanks!

first of all welcome to FTF!
stop over in the Introductions Section and say hello to everyone when you get a chance.

second, that looks to be a M700 SPS in stainless steel. it actually is a fairly standard offering from Remington. the rifle itself has an MSRP of $838 which new in the store could be anywhere from about 15-25% less than that.

http://www.remington.com/products/firearms/centerfire/model-700/model-700-sps-stainless.aspx

so NIB, about $625-725 would probably be the asking price is my guess.

so you need to determine if your laptop is worth that or more. just my thoughts, laptops lose value very quickly due to advancements in computers and technology. they depreciate quicker than a new car. so what is cutting edge today in the store is old news and obsolete by next year. that rifle isn't going to depreciate in value near as much, and will actually hold better value in the long run much better than the laptop will.

personally, i'd make the trade in heartbeat.

The laptop I have is almost brand new, around 1200 brand new. Person is offering the rifle, 350 cash and two pretty standard 9x scopes.

i'd take the trade for sure. in about a year, that laptop might be worth about $300-400. the rifle will still be worth worth well north of $600 if kept in good condition. plus getting $350 cash in trade as well, that's just icing on the cake. the scopes are okay, but not a huge bunch of money.

i'd definately make the trade on those terms without hesitation.

That 300 Remington Ultra Mag will have a decent amount of recoil,and ammo isn't very cheap either. Unless you reload,or really have a need for such a caliber,I'd rethink about trading a Laptop for it.
That caliber is overkill for everything smaller than elk,moose,or grizzly's. Just my $.02!

Does it matter if its a certain caliber? Its a 300 mag (value wise)

Not really. That rifle in that particular stock will kick like a pissed off mule in that caliber,if you're not knowledgeable about the different calibers.
It's not a 300 Winchester magnum,it's a Remington Ultra mag. That caliber holds about 15 grains more powder than a 300 Winchester magnum,and you will feel every grain of it on your end.
