My father recently obtained a 1960 Model 88 in .308 in an estate, and we are beginning to try to determine value. It will be something he will sell.
It is in incredibly good shape. In fact, I almost wonder if it has been refinished, but if it has, an incredibly good job was done. The bluing looks almost too strong and black to me, for some reason; maybe it’s because I’m used to seeing guns of that age with wear. However, the inner parts of the lever mechanism, magazine well, etc. show almost no wear. I’m not an expert, but it honestly just looks like a new gun, not a refinish job.
What, very roughly, would it possibly be worth? I know .308 was by far the most common chambering, so I’m sure that’s limiting.
