You got a pretty good deal. Mine was a model 700 300 RUM with the lightened bolt and muzzle brake. All the other ones Iv seen have went for 1,900 or more. Do whatever you want to do. There are some people who love them and others who haven't had as good of luck. If it was me and I know what I know now after having one, I would sell it for what its worth and buy something else. Good luck with whatever you want to do!
