Remington 760 .35 Rem

I have a Remington 760 in .35 Rem that has never been fired. My grandfather bought it new in the early 80's I believe. I have inherited it since then. I am having a lot of trouble finding info about this gun. Does anyone know what the value of this gun might be? I will probably never sell it based on the sentimental value, but I'm just curious. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Remington 7600 .35 Rem

you sure its a 7600 and not a 760? the late model 760's were offered in 35 rem in 1979 and 1980 after being out of production in that caliber since '68. they were replaced with the 7600 in 1981 but as far as i know they were not offered in 35 rem again until Grices wholesalers started in the '90's with some special runs. if you give me the barrel code on the left side of the barrel back by the receiver i can tell you the mo/yr it was made.


if its a NIB late model 760 in 35 it could be worth $6-700. they were limited production in those years and are somewhat sought after by collectors.

Re: Remington 7600 .35 Rem

Its just the opposite. .35 Remington was once the king of the woods back in the day. Remington has been chambering its pumps in it for almost 100 years. Its not so popular today, but still a great cartridge and still very much alive and well. 35 Whelen has been chambered off and on since the 1980's. Its a wonderful cartridge as well, but Remington has not offered it in a while. There are alot of 35 rem. pumps out there, just not many for sale. You have a wonderful grandpa for that gem of a gift, treasure it !

Oops you are right. It is a 760. I have a 7600 in .308. I always mix them up... Anyway the barrel code is B7210649. Thank you!

Re: Remington 7600 .35 Rem

thats the serial number. the barrel code will be 2 or 3 digits on the left side of the barrel back near the receiver.

Re: Remington 7600 .35 Rem

your gun was made in june 1979 so it is a late model. you have a nice, desirable rifle. and one of te best guns for PA hunting. your gramps bought a good one.
