I know they already have..do you think it will continue ? I bought a new 870 Marine Magnum for 750.00 a couple years ago, they're selling all day on GB for 1200.00 1500.00.

Due to the increased price of ammo, don't expect a warning shot...

My perception. Left handed Rem 700’s really got crazy after Slow Joe took office. Prices for the left handed bolt rifles seem to be settling back down. However, I doubt they will ever get back to where they were.

I certainly hope that someday the rifles, or more importantly to me, the actions will be made again. Other than a custom action, as far as I’m concerned, Remingtons are the best to blueprint for a custom rifle. I have quite a few that are very accurate

How do you check to find out if an action truly needs "blueprinting"?

For the people that like them.
Give em a couple of more years for the older 700,s they will go up even more among people who like them.
The desirability of them will increase as the availability of the older ones become more and more unobtanium.

They will become like pre 64 70,s I bet.

Throw in the multiple bankruptcy era,s and the knowledge base of quality issues on some of those versus the older pure Remington guns even with the walker trigger ( after market triggers address that issue)
The older pure Remington guns will be the ones commanding big Benjamin's.

I can see em reaching collector status like pre 64 70,s in time.

No I don’t think so. Too many Remington clones. As for crf model 70”s. The new production are better guns.

It depends on what you want from your rifle. If you’re not loading your own ammunition and tuning it to your rifle you have a ways to go before you need to true an action. Every action is built within tolerances. Production actions have large tolerances and a custom target action will have smaller tolerances. Remington actions are well known for large tolerances. Every action body is banana shaped and the bolt is too. Blueprinting is just going through the action and oversize cutting all the surfaces to align everything to the approximate centerline of the action.
Bottom line is that if the rifle meets your accuracy expectations and functions well you don’t need the action trued. If it doesn’t your best first step is to learn to load ammo and see how well you can tune a load to get it to meet expectations. Bed the rifle. When you get to the point of replacing the barrel you need to true the action at the same time.

Triggers sure aren’t.

As half the country wants them all destroyed, my guess is yes.

Not critical of you chopper.

Jorge, I've told you before and it's STILL the truth. I've been shooting, loading, graphing, & hunting Rem 700s since
1975 (?) I still have a few.

NOT one, single, solitary, problem of ANY sort.

AKCHOPPER: As a lifelong (adult lifetime anyway - age 14 to now 74!) Remington Rifle advocate, user, buyer, trader and endorser I have been watching the Remington Rifle market very closely for a very long time now.
My opinion, yes indeed the cost/value of Remington Rifles is going up, at a moderate rate - I would NOT say skyrocketing.
I would say that interest in Remington 700's, Model 7's, Model 40-X's, 541's and XR-100's is VERY strong right now and I don't see it weakening anytime soon.

So, youse guys are all presuming the DNC and Dimocommies will soon be out of power and destroyed along with all their nefarious hopes, dreams and schemes.

Presuming this country will continue as it has in the past?

I hope and pray you are right, but big things will have to occur for that to be so, and many lives will have to be sorely impacted also.

I was just proffering my opinion on the value question, not on the issue of the 700s multiple maladies, such as non-locking bolt and fail on fire safety, brazed on bolt handle and flimsy extractor, but since you brought it up.... But let us know when a 700 approaches the values commanded by pre-64s...

Well, if it's a Remington, it needs blueprinting . . . . for starters . . .
