Re: Opinion needed on Remington 700
I DOUBT IT IS A BDL, I DO NOT THINK THEY MADE A BDL IN 204. They did however make a vls laminate beavertail forend with the bdl style floorplate and a heavy barrel wwith no sights in a 204, i am am sure that is what this is. if it is a bdl it would have wood stock and open sights with a sporter barel unless it was a vs model and they were stopped being made before the 204 was introduced. if it has a bdl stock i believe the laminate stock was replaced with the wood. look on remingtons website under history and i am sure you are not going to find a bdl made in a 204, it was only made in a vls laminate. Now on to the price, in te vls i have seen these same rifles from 550 to 625 new because there was no interest in the caliber in that configuraton and they discontinued it quite quickly. If you find the same rifle in a 243, 22-250, or 223 they run 625-650 used and up 725-750 new. Basing all this off from memory so if someone knows different, please correct me. I would not buy the caliber, I think it is a dead duck caliber that only true rifle looneys know about and resale [censored] on them, and it does nothing a 22-250 cannot do...... but if you are a rifle looney maybe it fits your bill.
