Remington model 788 value, 44 magnum , 1967 mfg
Any help would be appreciated.... I just bought a Remington model 788 in 44 magnum. Got it for an awesome price on an auction where a guy listed it as a a Remington 778. Anyway... the serial number is 0256xx which comes back as the first year mfg of 1967. The gun is in very good to excellent condition. Metal and bore are excellent. Wood stock has a few dings but no cracks. Looks to have been hunted some but not fired much. It had an aftermarket recoil pad which I replaced with a buttplate that might be a reproduction. Sights are all there and original. Stock has not been cur and length of pull is 13.5". I just saw similar rifle in much worse condition sell for $1000 (search completed auctions on GunBroker to see it) I don't know the serial number on that one. Can anyone give me an idea what mine is worth? I can send pics to someone who might know. I want to keep it but want to know its current value. Thanks in advance.
