    Early? Rem 700

    Evening all,

    Iv got this Remington 700 here with a Burris scope of some kind really neat Iíd say itís of the vintage of the rifle my guess is early 90ís could be earlier though very early parallax adjustable dialing scope but it is a guess ,itís a brilliant example not your usual profile either itís a rather large barrel the stocks mighty cool and all looks to be in good nick . It belongs to and engineer at work that was talking about rebarreling to 6.5prc I convinced him to go 280akley rather than muck around with the bolt face etc . He was keen on that idea how ever iv since seen the rifle and pleaded with him not to butcher it simply sell it and buy a tikka in 7rem mag as I believe itís to original and to tidy and someone might really treasure it itís chambered in 25/06 which might pose as a problem on here but il give it a go anyway as to itís value I really have no idea so donít be offended he will entertain offers if the price is off as usual some suggestions to where it should be are welcome $1700ono as a package Name:  69967A23-12CE-498B-BDBA-26051CC2BA75.jpeg

    If I had to guess I'd say it's a90's or 80's BDL heavy barred varmint.
    But hey, I could be well wrong.
    Nice rifle

    Its a BDL I think. A real beauty. I have one of a similar vintage in 7mm Rem Mag. Used to copper up like crazy but would consistently shoot .25 moa 5 shot groups. Those old action were much better than the newer ones.

    Yeah, it's a BDL Varmint in 25-06... and nothing wrong with a 25-06, so it won't cause any problem on here.

    The scope is a Burris Signature Select 6-24◊44 AO (magnification is a guess).
    Its click value is 1/8 MOA and only has 22 MOA of elevation and windage adjustment in its 1" tube (I used Burris signature rings with inserts with my 8-32x Signature Select).
    It has great repeatable clicks/tracking as well as super clear glass (a little dark though...).

    Yes 6-24 bang on mate . I’d take it off his hands as I’m a sucker for rems and rifles in general but iv got my adult pants on and I seriously wouldn’t use it I’m even building him a whooping shed and could take part payment as a rifle so it’d almost feel free but none the less I won’t use it cheers for the info so far

    They’re easy age. There should be a two letter code stamped on the barrel close to the action, google the decode and it’ll give you the month and year.

    Rcf appears to be 82 or 85 from what I can see I’d say the later

    I fear you have given us a tad too much information on your relationship, right there
