    Hello,
    im a new member but have been reading lot of posts on here.

    I have a Remington 700 BDL short action. LH. It has been slightly reworked by Clay Spencer (spencerriflebarrels.com) the lugs have been lapped trigger assembly polished, crisp break at 2lbs. I'm not sure if I want to go with a stiller or stay with this one. Can someone tell me what it's worth? Fired off around 180 rounds with it, kept it all very clean. Just a rough estimate, or if someone would like to make an offer. I would also be willing to sell the barrel with it. It has been lapped and index crowned, also by Clay Spencer. Will only ship to licensed FFL dealer.

    Thanks,
    Oliver

    OK you asked for it

    Completely trued 700s go for no more than about $450 to absolute max $500, but plan on $450

    Ok thanks. I'm just curios because I may sell it and buy a stiller rather than have it blueprinted

    if you plan to have it blueprinted, depending on how much you have in it to date, you may be way ahead to sell it for $450 ?? barreled $550 and buy the custom action.

    Don't listen to those guys. It's only worth about $50. Where do I send the money?:D:D:D

    I think BH gave you a pretty good estimate.

    BH gave you a pretty good range----that is why I do not use Remmy actions. Go with one that has already had the work done -- just for example a Stiller or others.
