Re: Which rifle will retain value better?
I have a Rem 700 6 Dasher built for benchrest competition by a well known York Co. gunsmith. It has all the bells and whistles you can think of. Blueprinted, Holland recoil lug & custom bolt,FP bushed, Jewel trigger, pillars, special 3" stock paint job, tuner on bbl, and lots more. I think I have about $2,700 in the rifle.
A dealer friend recently told me I could probably get $500 or $600 for it!!
On the other hand, I last year, sold my entire collection of 36 older Sako rifles, many NIB. I cannot believe how rapidly the asking prices for similar Sakos have now escalated. Cheap guns do not return much profit.
