Visited my grandfather and came across a Remington Model 600 chambered in .243. Was wondering if anyone has any knowledge about this rifle and can give me an approximate value? Looks like a carbine bolt action rifle? Thanks.

I have one my father bought in probably '66 or '67 in 6mm remington. Fun gun. It is so light, it beats me up more than just about any other gun I own. A few month ago I was in a Cupertino area gun store that had several for sale. I recall they were in the $450 to $600 range. A while ago I searched on the internet and it seems that value on these is dependent alot on the caliber. It did not seem that 6mm was one of the rare ones, so I shoot it.

I believe you have a Model 600 Mohawk. They were a lower cost model made later than the original Model 600.

They are great rifles. I have a Mohawk in .308 and it is amazingly accurate.

Value depends on condition. They are sought after rifles. If it is in good / excellent condition, asking price $400 - $500. If is mint, asking price $600 -$700.

If it has been a home gunsmithing project, or not well cared for, that takes the value down quite a bit.

Too bad it's not chambered in .257 Roberts. That gets the collectors going.

What I am confused about is the Caliber. According to the Remington website, only the 600 Mohawk was chambered in .243 WIN. This rifle is not a Mohawk. It has the Vented Rib on the top. Were these made in .243?

That's why I thought it was a Mohawk.

If it has the vent rib it must be the Model 600. Maybe you know something Remington doesn't.
