does anybody out there have a "blue book" of gun values?? i got a message from a friend yesterday telling me he was in town at a "bait shop" and he was looking at the guns they had and he said there is a 1960's vintage m700 bdl in .300win mag for sale. he said the gun looks very nice and well taken care of considering the age. he is a gun nut so i trust his judgement. they had a price tag of $399 on it, my question is what's it really worth?? my gun value book is to general on prices, they still make the bdl so in my book they give values as an average i guess. if it were discontinued maybe they would narrow it down. just wondering if the rifles vintage helps or hurts its value. im going to go look at it tomorrow.
thanks in advance!

Sounds like reasonable figure to me.  I don't have my blue book here at work but I would check gunbroker for similar ones.  If its in the condition you buddy describes it in it sounds worth it in my book.

Blue book does not reflect regional price trends.  YMMV

Pyro, sounds like an excellent deal to me. A friend of mine just bought an early model 700 "classic" in 6mm for $550.
On an earlier thread, I posted I had found a mid 60's production 700BDL 30-06 that had been unfired for $600.

Man that 9.3x62 sure has nice wood! I COVET nice wood!!!
 
Pyro, be advised a CZ550 is a lot more rifle than a Rem700.
 
And a 9.3x62 is over the top in cool factor vs. 300WinMag.
 
Definitely worth 201 clams more... I know what I would do.
 
YMMV though.

Speaking of 6.5's... what's the deal with Remington's lack of offerings for the great 260 Rem?
Or any 6.5 for that matter?

Remington is known for occasionally making goofy marketing/model decisions, but it looks to me like they are missing the boat with their lack of support for the potentially great 260 Rem.

Just look at the Silhouette Rifle category... many shooters have adopted various 6mm and 7mm flavors (read .243/7mm-08) for recoil reasons- the .243 is a bit light to assuredly drop the distant targets and the 7mm-08 still has recoil issues with getting quickly back on target- the 6.5s are just right and the 260 Remington fits perfectly in the mix.

Pyro, I can assure you that you would love the 6.5x284 ! A co-worker of mine just ordered one from Montana Rifle co. I had a Winchester model 88 done in that caliber about 5 years ago.
As far as Remington and the 260, My father bought a 700 mountain rifle in it when Remington 1st came out with it. Remington stepped on their wee-wee just like they did with the 6mm in his and a lot of other peoples opinion.
 My fathers mountain 700 is a beautiful, light, and handy rifle, but it only fires 120gr bullets worth a crap. A 140gr bullet will not group inside of 4 inches, which is the size bullet he wants to use.
After a lengthy discussion with Rem's customer service, they admitted they screwed up initially by putting a 1 in 12 twist barrel in the 1st batches. They now use a 1 in 9 twist. All they would offer my father is to put a new barrel on for $400, but they would cover shipping. Pisspoor in my humble opinion.
The 260 is an excellent round, and my father in law has a model 88 with Walther barrel done in it. I guess you can tell we like Win 88's.
