How much would a Remington Model 700 Bolt action rifle be worth?
The rifle is chambered in 7mag and is left handed. It is in great condition with a scope, Burris scope, don't know the specs. There is no rust on the weapon and maybe a couple of scratches on the stock. Normal wear. It is a wood stock with a light barrel. If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks.

Being a left hand rifle does make it harder to sell. Try to find a local gun shop that does consignment with a percentage split. If your in a position to wait a little while you can ask $500.00 to $600.00 for it and the gun shop will take a percentage cut from that. You may have to settle for a little less that way but it will get better exposure in a gun shop. Some folks like me would pay good money just for the action to build another rifle.Source(s): USPSA Tactical class 3-gunner Competition gunsmith Used gun hunter Left handed shooter

Condition, condition, condition; how does the barrel look. The typical hunting rifle does not get fired that much so the barrel should look sharp. Left handed rifles cost more since they are not in that plentiful of a supply. With the Burris scope it would most likely range between 200 and 500 frogskins. The 700 is a nice long lived rifle and would give you good service. You would be better off with a 30-06 or 8mm Mauser caliber; but you can't have everything.

As a Firearms Appraiser, I need some additional information to give you an accurate value..Does the Rifle have a Detachable Magazine? Does the stock have a Black Nylon Grip Cap and Fore-end Cap?
There were 7 different grades/variations of this Rifle and the answers to these questions will help to narrow down the possibilites.Thanks.Source(s): Firearms Appraiser/Gun Shop Owner-Dealer Collector/Hunter/NRA Life Member 30 Years Firearms Experience

It could have significant sentimental value, but as far as a "hunting" rifle, a .22 is only good for shooting squirrels and birds. It's not old enough to be desired by collectors, regardless of the condition. You'd be lucky to get $10 at the pawn shop, $60 from a private buyer. Hang onto it for 30 years, then it'll be worth alot more.

JD is absolutely correct also, with any magnum class rifle it is essential that you make sure the barrel hasn't been 'shot out' from excessive use. A couple of thousand rounds can wear out a .7mm Mag. barrel. Will the muzzle accept a bullet of the chambered caliber down the wrong way? If it fits say to where it makes contact with the neck of the casing then the barrel has excessive wear.

If you do want to sell it, call around a few local gun shops and see if any will sell it for you online. .
As has been mentioned, a left-handed model will be harder to sell locally as most people are right handed. However, online lefty models can often get as much or more as that's where leftys go looking for their needs.

it is worth between a range of $216 to $402 depending on condition weather it has cracks in the stock or how deep the scratches are

Being a left handed model, it makes it harder to sell. It depends on condition, and the popularity of the 7mm. I'd say anywhere from $200-$300.
