Model 760 carbine

Quick question for you Remington guys. I ran into a fellow today and got to talking firearms. He has a 760 carbine in .308. He says it's immaculate and is willing to sell it. He said make him an offer. I don't want to insult the guy. I'm going to head over his place tonight and check it out. If its as he described Im gonna pull the trigger. What kind of number should I throw out there. He said he took it hunting one time killed a deer with it and it has never been out of the safe since except to put a fresh coat of oil on it every year. Right up my alley! I know the guy somewhat so he may give me some wiggle room.

16 years and counting. Welcome to the life of a Buffalo Bills fan!

$350-$400 depending on what version 760 it is.

Age would have a lot to do with value. If it were from the mid '50's (I think they started the .308 around 1955), with the ribbed forearm, the value would probably be north of $1,000.00. A deluxe , with basket weave fore end and monte carlo stock I would guess in the $700-$ 800 range. If just a run of the mill 760 from the late 60's to early 80's, I would say around $500-$600 if in truly excellent condition.

I'm no expert on 760's, I'm not familiar with all the available trim options , years of production, ect... but I have owned a few of them over the years. The only one I still have is a 1952 in .35 Rem. It is no safe queen, and it shows. It is the gun I often carry the remainder of the season once I shoot a buck. They are a pleasure to carry. I had a .30-06 in carbine that was a real tooth rattler.

I'm sure some resident 760 experts can give you better gen than this, but that's what I know.

Hope you can buy it. Good luck.

Did you get it? The carbine versions go for more money than the longer barreled ones. I think 450 to 500(assuming very good condition and no scope)

I know you're buying and not selling, so naturally you want to see the lowest numbers you can, but the numbers the other two guys have put up are low IF the gun is immaculate. The prices they quoted would be spot on for a gun in average condition.

A gun that has not been manufactured for over 30 years in mint condition always brings a premium. They are difficult to find.

There's one on the pennswoods classified right now for $850.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Maybe in 30-06. But in .308, you can add about 200 in my opinion.

The sleep of a laborer is sweet, while the rich man tosses and turns, worried about his possessions.

I don't know if .308 would add that much, maybe. Next to the 06 the .308 was one of the most popular calibers offered in the 760. Now if you had a .222, .223, .257 Roberts, or .300 Sav. then I imagine your doubling or tripling the price.

I don't think think the 760c carbine was offered in any caliber but the .30-06 and .308 though. Anybody know for sure ?

I came across a 308 carbine years ago and bought it because I never seen one before and thought it was rare. Itís not as uncommon as I thought but I havenít seen one since. They were produced in several calibers over the years. Seems like anything but the 3006 are few and far between but they are out there.

I've never seen anything other than the .308 and .30-06 in carbine. More 06's than .308's, but I have seen a fair amount of .308's.

Edit: I looked up cal. made in 760c (carbine), they are : .270 Win, .280 Rem., .308 Win, .30-06, .35 Rem.
