working in house cleaning and moving weapons around in different safes ,

Found one of my old toys in back of safe probably has not seen a round fired in 20 yr's.

Remington 700 BDL /.17rem w/Leopold Varix2 A.O.3x9xeither42or44/only thing done to rifle is trigger tuned to 2.5lb.

I bought the rifle new in the 80's , shot great / sometime in the first year there was a recall on the .17 Remington rifle due to something in the barrel cracking/stress fractures etc

Sent rifle back to Remington & a new barrel was factory replaced and weapon was recertified for unlimited use. Took over 1 year to get rifle back from Remington.

When I got the rifle back it had a better barrel than original. Shoot sub<.5 groups with factory Ammo 25grain/4250fps

If you reload and use the fire formed brass it will shoot tiny groups. Would glue aspirin tablets to target and shoot them for fun. Birds & squirrels/turkeys etc. @ almost any range. Even shot a 7 point buck thru the heart @120yd. Six pack of Dixie Beer split up in singles that no one would drink @450yards. It's basically a laser to 350yards. Only regret never got to take it prairie dog hunting .

Rifle & stock & bluing all in 98-99% shape

Also have @ least 120roundfs factory Ammo for it.

Looking at it today & it is still in beautiful shape - I am either going to trade/sell or pull it back out and take it to west Texas & start shooting varmints/pigs whatever needs shooting . If I do that its going to start picking up hunting dings etc

So basically what is the selling Value rifle/scope/ammo or trade value of said weapon.

Thanks Hetman

Imo with mounts, glass, ammo, and condition. $800-900 especially if someone is after a 17 rem.

Take it out after some pdogs then decide what you want to do, you'll have a great time.

That is also my favorite coyote round. One inch high at 100 and 1 inch low at 300 is a flat shooter and sure does a number on yotes.
