I happened to run across a rem 760 carbine in 35 rem. I thought the price was decent but wasn't sure. It would be more of a collectors gun if it was a fair price. So what ya think? Thanks

275-350 without a scope in nice shape would be my guess.
Personally, I think that's a little low, I see them quite often between $425-$500 depending on shape. If you see one for $350, jump on it man!

I bought mine in a 30-06 in 1980 for $179.

is it a real carbine with an 18.5" barrel? does it have Carbine written on the barrel? if it is indeed a 760 carbine in 35 remington, there were only 456 of them made and it is worth about $1500 in good shape. if you don't buy it, let me know where it is and i will.

What, no pic of the Whelen carbine?

Apparently the one's I've seen around aren't actual factory carbines for those prices. What does cutting a barrel do to the price of a non-factory 760-7600 carbine?

n guess i've flaunted that whelen a bit too much huh?
i know my wife is sick of it laying between us in bed.

a 760 rifle cut down to 18.5" is worth a rifle price or maybe a bit more or less depending on condition. a nice 760 rifle in 35 in good shape its worth about $400. it really depends on age and condition. some of the 760 35's are worth a bit more like the '58-'63 ADL models. the last ones produced in '79-'80 are worth more if they are in really good condition.

that said, cut down models make handy guns though.

280 is rare too. 1300 made. i would like to get one of those but they are too rich for my blood. 35 is the rarest carbine though.

If it's a carbine, and has it written on the left side of the barrel like pumpgun said, it's a rare gun and needs snatched up ASAP

thats too much. you can find them for around $600. when i bought my whelen carbine the guy had a NIB 7600 35 carbine for $629 and probably would have dealt. i was really tempted but just left with the whelen since i already had a 35.

gunbroker prices are nuts. look at little country gunshops in PA for the bargains.

Ahhhhh you gotta love finding deals like that! I have been looking to find a deal on a 7600 in 260 or 280 the only ones I can find are people who also know the real value of the gun.

Around this time last month, I walked into a shop that had a 7600 in 260, 280,35 Whelen and several 06's and 270's! I bought the 280 and wifey bought me the Whelen for Christmas. I'm still working on the 260. All were fairly priced too.
