Default Rem 700 value

At 60, i am ready to lighten the load
And reduce my recoil.

I have a late 70ís model 700 left handed 7 mag.
One owner. Well worn, but shoots like a dream
I looked online, but I canít get a comp.
thanks for some help with the value.
FYI No lefty family to leave it to.
Lefty Daughter still loves her .243

A new BDL is going to run close to $800. Used LH BDLs in 7mag are listed between $500-600 on Gunbroker.

70’s model BDL worth more for the action than new Rem. ?

It depends on what "well worn" means. Condition means everything in gun values. Do you have some pictures that you can post?

The value is enhanced if in minty condition...the well worn part is going to hurt it

No worries. Thanks for the input, guys.

I hunted it for many years so it is “used”..
But I am a hunter so it I never shot more than a few shots each year to check POI
Assumed the action would be worth something
Maybe I hold it for a bucket list aoudad hunt.
Or maybe I find some reduced factory loads and whack some pigs for old time’s sake.

Thanks again

Try some Hornaby custom lite ammo. Reduced recoil and won't kick you like a mule

Old 700's..... One of the best "factory rifles" and calibers ever made..
Like has been stated above, wether ADL or BDL and condition will mean a lot toward its value..o

Bill Baily put me on Hornady 139gr btsp years ago in mine telling me they would knock down any WT in Tx. I havnt been able to prove him wrong. Recoil not bad and still slinging them at 3100fps.

I added pachmayr decelerator Years ago.
Definitely helped. Started shooting 25-06, .243, .260 and .270 and never returned to 7 mag.
Haven’t killed that many bucks in recent years, but lots of big Hogs with the .270 proved its all I need now.
