    What's it worth?

    Howdy guys, I found a Remington model 700 BDL in 300H&H magnum. It seems to be in great overall condition, and fired very little. It has Leupold bases. The old guy (older than me!) that has it wants $550 for it, could get it for $500.
    I really don't need it, what do you think? Good deal, or not so much??

    It is hard to tell as there are many, many models and variations. IMHO the .300 H & H should bring a premium as they made fewer of them than most other calibers.

    Looks like it probably is Classic LTD edition as it is the only one I could find in my Blue Book that offered H & H. It adds a 25% premium for .300 H & H. Depending on condition, should be worth more than he wants for it, probably at least 600+. I'd buy it in a heartbeat!!!

    I saw a closed auction for one that went for $675. Other than that, new 700 BDL models were from $800 -$1000. None where 300 H&H though.

    If you like it, and its available, buy it up!

    If money wasn't an issue, you can never have too many guns, especially when you get a good deal on them. Buy it up...

    It sounds like a good deal. I would look on gun broker and guns america for some comparable guns to get an idea of what its worth.

    Must have been a good deal to sell that fast.
