    Hi all I have a Remington model 700 I would like some to help identify the specific model and come up with a value for it.

    I have been doing some internet searches and looked at Remington's website but have not found the right info yet.

    It is a 700 in 270 winchester, it has iron sights, and no floor plate. It has mounted on it a burris fullfield II 3x9. It is in great shape and has not seen very much use.
    Serial E6742xxx

    Thanks

    Looks like a plain old M700ADL.
    If you get the series of letters off the left side of the barrel, just in front of the receiver, you can figure out the month and year it was manufactured here:

    PS: great gun/scope package by the way.
    Killed many a critter with one very similar!

    google remington and just call them and ask, the websites used as reference wont give you the right mfg date. It's a 10 min phone call, well worth it.

    Thanks for the info so far, it is going to end up on the classifieds soon, anyone care to venture what the package is worth?

    I would say it's in the ~$500.00 range if it's in good shape.

    But the reality is, it's only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.

    I paid $500 for my older 700 BDL, which has a floor plate. ADLs are theoretically more accurate because of the no floor plate, but a PITA to unload and clean. I prefer BDLs, and I think most do, but that looks really nice and it's in a great caliber. I'd ask $550 and see where it goes. My 700 in 7MM shoots 3/4" 5 shot groups from a rest at 100yds and hand loads. Pretty impressive for a pawnshop gun!

    bluebook of gun values, a lot of gun shops have them and some will let you look through it

    Thanks for the help everyone, it is my grandfathers rifle that he would like me to sell for him. I do not know much about the Remington line up of center-fires.

    I have the bluebook of gun values but I am about 7 editions behind on it so models and pricing is starting to get pretty far off.

    If I were you, I'd buy it from him, and keep it for yourself! There's something special about shooting or hunting with "grandpa's gun". Even if you're not interested in it right now. Don't let it slip away!

    And listen to this song/watch this video :) - CMT : Music Video : Granddaddy's Gun : Aaron Lewis
