How do you figure the value of a custom rifle? I have a 7mm Mauser AI with a Proof Research carbon barrel, McMillan stock, Remington action, and have forgotten the trigger in it. I do not know the gunsmith that built it and neither did the gunsmith that I got it from. I got the gun for the wife but it is just physically too large for her. I also have Redding dies for it with neck sizer. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Daniel

Got a photo of a group it has shot?

Figure up the retail price of each part, as well as gunsmithing fees. You'll have to deduct the final talley by a percentage, but I'm not sure how much. Im rhinking to start at 20% less.

Customs never bring as much as someone has in them.

Jason, when I have done my part it will shoot half inch regularly. Gun has been bedded. Would I be out of line asking $2000 including dies and what brass I have for it? Yes I have targets that I could take pics of but would have to send to a phone. Daniel

The problem selling customs is generally people have money as they are not cheap

So you need to a) find someone who wants it set up in the way yours is and is looking to save time and hassle or b) lower the price to convince someone to buy yours over what they want


The more info you provide the better, things like shot count matter.

I've sold a few and lost on all of them.

Now, I'm going Tikka rifles and making them 'mine'. Custom stocks, bolt shrouds, bottom medal, and magazines....still a sickness.

$2k would likely be fair to both parties, but be prepared to take less. Also, where you market it makes a differece.

Yep. They never seem to bring anywhere near what someone has in them, unless you made some pretty bland choices and can find someone who was looking to get exactly what you have.

I dont have to sell, would consider trade. If that doesn't work out will keep it. Have a step-son and a son that probably like to have it. Shot count would be a guess. When I got it, gunsmith said it had been fired very few times. I have put approx. 250-350 rds down the barrel.

How about if it was a 275 Rigby???? Buzzsaw, The cartridge is actually the 7x57. I have just always referred to it as the 7 Mauser.

A couple of years back I got a divorce and liquidated my guns. I had a left handed semi custom with a solid $4000 invested. It was the best shooting gun I ever owned. I sold it on here for $2800. Thatís 70% of initial investment. It sold in just a few days even being left handed. Granted it was a 7-08 not 7mm Mauser but it was before 7-08 regained the popularity its enjoying today. It was built with the best parts available at the time. I donít know if this gives you any help but definitely a point of reference.

Note: the sale was a complete package. Bipod, pelican case, Nosler brass, bullets, dies etc.

Save it for the sons. There is nothing wrong with the cartridge except it is not the current cool round. If it was a Creedmoor there would be a line to buy it.
If you short sell it for way less than you would like to get you will be pissed and regret selling. Give it to one of the boys and be a hero.

A 7x57 has the potential to outperform the 7-08 if it's handloaded to similar pressure. There is NOTHING wrong with that cartridge, and I'd choose it over the 7-08 any day of the week.
