Re: Can't find the value .257 rbts

I HAD the same rifle in .257 Roberts, a Rem Classic, with about 100 rounds thru it, perfect condition, and I sold it about 5 years ago for $650. It was the second in Remington's old time classic line. (The first they offered was 7x57). I'm still crying.

So never give up!!
The guns were stolen from my mom's house as I was in college at the time. I know that a police report was filed with Tucson PD and I followed up with the officer for the first year afterwards without any luck. Also regularly hit the gunstores and pawnshops since a .257 roberts isn't the most common gun to be coming and going. I was told that it was very like that the guns were in Mexico since it is so close.

I knew that there were just over 6500 of them ever made, therefore I changed out stocks.
In 2011, I acquired a Remington Model 700 LE in a 257 Roberts at a gun show in Pennsylvania for, oddly enough, $1100.00. It was billed as am "unfired" 1982 model. The barrel, from the bolt area (where "REMINGTON" appears) to the end of the muzzle had been etched in oak leaf and acorn clusters. The stock on which it was mounted is also engraved with the same - in the forearm and butt (behind trigger guard) areas. It came with an accompanying unfinished wood stock said to be the original. To be sure. it is a pretty piece and would look good in anyone's cabinet. And so I am now trying to determine it's actual value. I am now not sure the accompanying stock is the original nor is the one the barrel is mounted on since I have come to understand that all 700 Model stocks are supposed to exhibit classic black on the barrel end an butt. This one has the classic checkering but nothing blacked and on the inside there appears the letter "B" (also on the serial number - for BDL I think) and the number "11" stamped in the wood. The B is in either black paint or ink. I would appreciate any help on determining the actual value of this piece. Thanks!

I took the wooden stock off in 1995 and replaced it with a Remington "plastic" stock that has been glass bedded and floated. I do have the original stock, it was taken off to protect it. It has a few minor marks on the wood from the safe prior to changing it out. This is the long action version, but I think all the 1982's were Long Action? Please help me out if you have credible infomation..Thanks
