Nice gun - had one like it years ago - pretty heavy to carry in the deer woods all day so I went to a lighter model. I would say $700 plus

If it were a 30-06, I'd make an offer on right now. What importer (if any) mark does it have on the barrel? Ser # range would help establish whether it was pre/post Garcia?

Nice gun... value of the gun is very dependant of part of the country you are in and the cal... Some people really try to charge high dollars for these guns and honestly I believe they are worth it as they are wonderfully made guns... (sure can not touch something close made today for under several thousand). However, with that said, they just do not bring more than 700 to 800 around our neck of the woods.

Looks pretty clean, I'd venture $750ish.

A heck of a lot of rifle for the money. These were a lot better built gun than the $750-$800 guns of today.

Most I have seen are priced around $1000.I don't think they are being snatched up at $1000 and would think it would sell faster at $700-$800.

They are very nice guns.It's just that light weight,stainless and synthetic are more in vogue right now.

last year I bought:

1. AIII 30'06 Classic 90%...$650
2. AV 270 Hunter 90%...$700
3. AI 223 std 95%...$800.

The 223 was nicer than your 7 mag.

2 lug SAKOes just don't bring the money they should.
