    Hey guys I need some help figuring out the value on a rifle I have available to me. It's not bone stock factory. Here is what I know...

    Remington 700 Stainless action (unknown if it is blueprinted)
    Black Hole Weaponry remage stainless barrel 24 inches long 1:11 twist 300 win mag .6 at the muzzle 11 degree crown
    Bell & Carlson stock (bedded)
    BDL bottom but it looks like it is either Kwick Klip or Magpul not oem
    Under 100 rounds thru it (probably more like 20)

    I've had BHW barrels before and they shoot nice tiny groups so that is quite appealing BUT what is a good price for a rifle like that wo/screwing the guy over on price. He wants it gone, I want to help BUT if I don't like the recoil it might end up for sale here after I'm done shooting it some for fun. What's it worth or more importantly what would something like that sell for? Not exactly easy to just go looking on gun broker or ODT to find sold prices. HELP.

    Sorry, no pictures but it is in excellent shape.

    Maybe a grand. No doubt more into that though. B&C, for the most part, is just a hunting stock. Mainly see them on budget build nowadays. Any clue which one? If you decide to sell, most people will probably want a threaded muzzle. Rifle is probably too heavy for a hunting rifle, but not heavy enough for most wanting a long range stick.

    This is just my humble opinion of course. What type of BM will matter in the aftermarket, as well as what types of mags it takes.

    What he has into it doesn't matter as much as what it is "worth" :-) Looks like the stock is a Bell & Carlson BDL Alaskan Sporter in black (just looking at the web site) so it is the lower end of B&C but still way better than any OEM plastic! It is definitely set up as a hunting rifle about the same thickness on the barrel as a 300RUM but with less kick since it is only a 300WM. Looks like a DNZ scope mount and a Vortex Viper on top maxing out at 12 or 15 power (he wasn't sure) probably doesn't matter to me. Definitely has some money into it but it isn't high end tactical either.

    If I had to guess money into is about:
    Remington stainless donor $500
    B&C stock $250
    BHW barrel $350ish
    Lug & Nut for remage $50-75
    DNZ $50
    Bottom metal $75-125 (Magpul or Kwik Klip)

    Total he has into it should be $1025 - $1100 + the scope cost. So I'm thinking giving 800-900 bucks for a quick sale shouldn't be screwing him over OR is that still a little on the cheap skate side of me?

    Humble opinions is all I seek. Thanks guys.

    $1100

    $900-$1k is a fair offering price if the rifle is in good shape.

    Your assessment is pretty spot on.
