I've been asked to sell off a collection, and I'm looking for opinions on a few of the items. This one is a Remington GameMaster 760 pump action 30-06 Springfield rifle. It's not often I see pump action rifles, so I'd assume it's somewhat uncommon. It's in great condition, this guy really kept his firearms in tip top shape. What do yall think it's worth?

Actually more common than you think, especially in .30-06, depending on condition Hamburg,PA Cabela's has had them priced from ~$400 to ~$550. Recently though all of their prices new & used have been pushed up as much as $50 or so.

prices vary from state to state. out here $300 to $400 would be closer.

You do not see them very often partially because they have somthing of a cult following. Those who like them, have them and those who don't, don't.

I personally don't think I'd want one. I've always hunted with semi-auto (a .243 most of my life) and just don't see any advantage to use a pump action. I guess it could be the poor mans rifle, or as stated a cult following type thing. I saw some on Gunbroker selling anywhere from $300-$800+ based on caliber. (not that I follow gb values all that much) Just kinda wanted a little info to share with any perspective buyers.

I sold a .270 in decent condition for $350 about 6 years ago. Almost wish I didn't now. Their is something fun about pumps.

I spent a little more time on Gunbroker and some other gun auction and sales sites, and found them currently selling (In the last 8-12 months) for about $600. I find that kinda high, but lately it's hard to define what high is with the market all jacked up. If nothing else, it's definitely a sellers market.

hard to tell with out seeing it but for $450 its all about condition. Good rifle for a hunter. Many around in the hands of older hunters more than younger.

shot my first 3 deer with one in .30-06. it was accurate enough & if i missed on the first shot only took a second to pump & be ready for shot 2 without ever takin my eyes off the target. wish it was still around

around here i see them in the $350-$500 range, with most priced close to $500

760 is my go to deer riflr. In Pa. you cant hunt with a SA for 1 and they are lighter than most SAs from bygone era, also probably more accurate in my experience.

Not every state allows semi auto for hunting. Here in PA its manually operated rifles only. I'm willing to bet there are almost as many Remington 760, 7600 and other variants as there are Winchester or Marlin 30-30s. My dad has one and its a great rifle, but the value is really dependent on the location. In areas where they aren't as common it will fetch a higher price. I would guess between 350-450 as far as value.

I did not know that some states disallowed Semi-auto rifles. I guess that's a product of living in the south so long. I don't really see the advantage to the deer either way, whether I pump it or it reloads itself. It's still the same bullet in my mind. Thanks for the info anyway. Learn something new everyday.

I listed it for $600. I had an offer for $525 and I turned it down. I know I priced a bunch of weapons from the collection I am liquidating quite reasonably, as I sold 2 of them today, and I have a meeting setup for a 3rd tomorrow. I've not had to negotiate a dime with any of them, all payed asking price. From what I've seen, it should bring at least $550. (this is of course, in a very high sellers market....in a normal time, I can see it being much lower)

This 760 has always been a great shooter for me. I bought this back in the mid 80s and it is still in pretty good shape. I didn't shoot my first deer until I was 38 years old and I did it with this rifle.

I can tell you that the 760/7600 are regional guns. Here in the north east I'm the odd guy using a bolt. They are known as Pa Machine guns. Guys that use them, love them. Used, these lunitics will pay 800.00 for a nice condition 760.

Well, you find someone that wants one and I'll throw you a bone as well. This one is in excellent condition, having rarely ever been fired. I have it listed locally for $600, but if you can sell it where you are I'll send it to you for $500 and you can make whatever you want off it. I have so many from this collection i'm selling I can't fit all of them in my safe. Need to make some space! :eek:

I love mine but never saw one sell for that much, they seem to hold their value. I have a friend that wants to sell his for $250 because his ball and chain wants them out of the house.
