That 308 Carbine is really nice but not at that price. Too rich for my blood.
It is kinda interesting the uninformed public is so totally fascinated by someone else's personal idea that a gun with 3.5" shorter barrel will command such a huge premium??? Since collector value is of almost no concern to these "tracker decipels". Paying $5-800 extra to get a factory Carbine in this model cracks me up. Lol. We have lopped of lots of 742/760 barrels, for the tracker crowd around here, that claim to hunt in stuff so thick they often have trouble raising even 18.5" up thru the branches let alone 22"....... Of course it is sorta ridiculous, but they paid us and left happy as a clam! It's a bubble that will burst, and the guns will seak out their true market values. In the mean time stay tuned for a minty 35 Whelen carbine bring $3500 ............. It's certainly in the cards ( Visa card that is)
People are nutsHere's a 308 carbine that sold for over $3000.
A 30-06 carbine that sold for over $2500.
These are high, they don't all bring that, but still.
Somebody got a real hosing on this one unless they just really wanted a short barrel 30-06. This is NOT a factory carbine. The barrel has been cut, and the stock has been cut with a recoil pad added. $1400. The recoil pad anybody can see, the carbine part they got duped. It's never claimed that it's a carbine, but neither is it stated that it's not, and that the barrel was cut.
I haven't seen a 222 for sale in awhile , is the reason I asked . the last one I watched went for $4600 or $4800 .
Could that 222 be something Remington through together for Grice to sell?
I THINK , shadetree is right on this . no special runs on the 760's . as far as I know grice did some special runs on the 7600's . these were maple ,and black laminate stocks in then current chamberings . I kind of remember Grice doing a special run of 35 Whelen in the black synthetic only .Could that 222 be something Remington through together for Grice to sell?
