I know I’m getting old, but are my eyes this bad?

    Buddy asked if I would be willing to sell him one of my Remington 7600 pump in a 270win. They are practically new, maybe 75-100 rounds through each of them. Curiosity on value, I looked on gun broker and about pooped myself.

    Are these prices real?

    I believe this is a classic example of what it’s “worth” vs. what someone will pay. These are cool guns that Remington doesn’t make anymore (or at least to the quality that they used too). However, would I pay that for a pump action center fire? No. Considering the accuracy of the action and such.

    I guess list it for similar maybe? It just takes ONE nostalgic buyer… I find myself perusing pre bankruptcy Remington listings for similar reasons.

    I don’t get it. Why does old stuff increase in value?
    I’m old and I’m pretty much worthless.

    My beretta a390 regularly sells for 50% more than I bought it for 30 years ago. Its crazy what used guns will fetch. I wouldnt pay that for my gun, but hey, if someone wants to Id consider selling it. Those are real nice guns Randy I wouldnt blame you one bit for wanting to hang on to them.

    The first seller is totally delusional. You can list a pile of rubber dogsh!t on an auction site for $1 million. Doesn’t mean you’ll ever get a bid.

    But there IS real demand for the Ol’ Pennsylvania Tommy Guns nowadays. Remington isn’t making them anymore, and back east where they drive deer and shots are short, there is still a LOT of love for the ol’ Remmy pumps. A guy I used to work with was from back east and his family hunting party had nothing but various vintages of Remington pump guns.

    The supply of used guns is very low. To Captain’s point, I was looking for a used A-series Beretta for my son. No dice. There used to be dozens of these for sale at any one time on the auction sites. Now there’s nothing.

    Grouse, I saw the one didn’t have a bid yet. But scanning 17 pages on gun broker was almost a heart attack. Many have multiple bids in excess of 1k.

    Two of my 7600’s were bought early 80s for I think under 300

    Inflation may count if they were new. You wanna buy a used 82 chevy pickup for 25000 dollars?

    They do. And I’m sure you can find a cult following and willing to pay those kind of prices for a Pinto as well.

    I feel the same about my 79. I just looked at a 84 2500 a month or so ago. But the guy wanted big bucks for something that needed everything
