1968 Rem 7mm mag

Just picked up a 1968 Rem 700, 7 mag in about 98% plus condition. Was wondering what your take is on this gun. I have never had Remington before, was wondering value and quality.

    surjimmy,
    Hard to say or give the value without actually seeing it. If it is in deed at 98% then it should not have many rounds through it and the actions alone are going to approx. $400.00. Should make a fine deer/bear rifle for up to 500yds. The Remingtons made back in the late 60's should be just fine. The quality, IMO, was a little better then than now. JohnnyK.

    You have a very nice rifle and I expect it will be extremely accurate, same rifle I used while growing up in Idaho. Many mulie and whitetail bucks fell to that rifle. I bought another one when Remington brought it out in the 'Classic' and it also was a great rifle, had it fitted with a McMillan stock. I used it up here and killed several moose and caribou with it. I have two boys and when they turned twelve, they had their choice of a new rifle or one from my collection. The youngest chose the 7 mag so I no longer have it. He is now 27 and it's his 'go to' gun. He shot at the range with me on Friday and it still shoots a one hole group at 100 yards. He will be taking it to Idaho in November when he and I go down to hunt whitetail.

    I think you probably have a keeper there.

    It could have a Hart barrel on it (Look around the proof marks and if it has a hart shaped
    stamping/Cartouche then it will be a very good rifle and worth more than most new ones).

    $600.00 + would be the value if so marked and in really good shape.

    It also could have a very good, fully adjustable trigger.

    It does have what appears to be a upside down heart on the barrel. When I have time I will give you a range report with pics of the rifle.
