22-250 What's it worth

I have the chance to buy a 22-250 that has a bell & Carlson stock, Douglas barrel and timney trigger on a Remington 700 action. It has had 150-200 rounds through it. Price is 450 I'm 99 percent sure it's worth it because a factory rifle will cost that much but is there anything I need to look for to make sure nothing is wrong that there not telling me. Thanks Joe.

Re: 22-250 What's it worth

The action itself is likely worth the cost of admission. As long as you are up for a re-barrel if necessary. Check the bolt face for pitting. Sometimes reloaders like to push the hotter cartridges a bit too hot and will sometimes show pitting from gasses on the bolt face. This may be an indicator of how hard it has been used. Also muzzle wear/condition......YMMV

Although I am not wild about a 22-250, for $450 you can't pass that deal up. A used Rem700 with a cheap factory stock will go for $450. With the B&C stock, the rifle you are looking at is worth $550+

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Between the trued 700 action, the B&C stock and Timney trigger even if I don't like the 22-250 or it needs a rebarrel I won't get hurt on the price. I will post pics after I pick it up tomorrow. Thanks for the help. Joe

Re: 22-250 What's it worth

Just to be safe, after you pick up the rifle, ship it to me for some preliminary testing. If it's good to go, promise I'll ship it right back ;) If it turns out to be a piece of junk, I'll keep it so that you don't have to deal with the disappointment ;)
