    I have a chance to buy a brand new Montana custom rifle in 300wm. It was purchased at the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation auction. It is number 700 of 1000. Any idea on a value? Thank you

    As always... value is in the opinion of the seller or buyer. But, what I would do is look at their website, and price match a similar rifle. It certainly cannot be worth a LOT more than one of their factory rigs. But trying to get a cost on a custom job is tough, especially second hand.
    I have always wanted a Montana Rifle Co gun. Probably never will get one, cause I am so cheap.
    Good luck, and if you need someone to shoot it for you, you know, to break it in or something hit me up. ;);)

    I saw one go for $3500 at an NRA auction. But I'd guess the practical value to be around $1500?

    Beautiful rifle.

    The RMEF does nothing for the price unless YOU think it does. They dont sell any better than a regular rifle and sometimes worse. Some times they are too pretty to shoot.
    I have seen them at shops and gun show and they havent sold for years. Unless you are a collector the limited NRA RMEF rifles arent worth any more than a stock rifle. So whatever the general production "montana rifle" is worth

    I don't know what the rifle is worth, but your wife sounds priceless...

    I am a hunter but I'm not sure if I could hunt with it. It is too beautiful.
