I need some help on a rem 700 300 um

I found a rem 700 in 300 Rum and its got a full 1" bull with brake, all composite stock and I guess a parkerized finish on all metal.I dont know if this is a factory gun or not...was a police use weapon and its for sale for 1400.00 with very little this a good price for this gun?
Any help would be appreciated
Ballistically Speaking, Im about a 300 FP with a BC of -1.

Find out what kinda barrel and brake it is, and who did the gunsmithing work. Also find out what kind of stock it is. Doesn't sound like a factory rifle to me..

My guess is if its got a nice barrel and brake by a reputable company, as well as the stock, it could be worth $1400..

Pretty sure not factory and not police. Someone put that together.

Key question in a gun like this is what does the barrel look like inside?

For that kind of money you really need a borescope to look at the barrel.

If it shows lot of firecracking and checkering, deduct $500 for a new barrel, and all you have is an action and stock which is not worth $1400.

Will they give you 3 day return so you can take it to a smith and have it checked for that? Make sure that is one of the return conditions, ie firecracking in the barrel.
