What do I have

I acquired a Remington 722 in 6mm Rem caliber. It looks likes it has had the barrel replaced and restocked. It has a 26" Heavy barrel ( .664 @ muzzle) and a nice piece of walnut. The Barrel has a 1:10 Twist, but NO markings. It has a Bishop buttplate, very nicely fitted to the stock.

Is this a "factory Remington" or a custom gun built on a 722 receiver ?

Any idea what this could be worth ?

Not a factory barrel. A factory barrel would definitely have proof marks and other stampings.

Besides that, Remington made only two 6mm twists...... 1:12 for the .244 Remington and a 1:9 for the 6mm Remington.

It's worth what you can get. Not worth as much as a factory original 722 unless the aftermarket work is exceptional.

It's a custom gun on a factory action. If the barrel shows little wear and the stock is nice its a 500.00 to 600.00 dollar piece tops. It would help if you know who did the work, especially the rebarreling. Personally I would have no interest if I do not know the smith or have seen the gun shoot. If its not nicely done and clean it's worth about 350.00. In real life, it's only worth what someone will pay for it at that given moment.

I agree with jeffpc, $350.00 sounds about top of the mark if it's in good shape, unless like I said before there is some exceptional work. In my mind $600.00 would really be pushing it. You can find good factory original guns for less than that. Really hard to say without seeing the gun. The fact the barrel has no manufactures markings doesn't help.
