Default Thinking of selling my pride and joy

Years ago I bought a Winchester model 70 in 300WM. I sent it off to the guys at American Precision and had them work it over from front to rear. The rifle is absolutely gorgeous and gets a lot of attention when I take it out at the range, mostly from people asking what it is chambered in making all that big boom.

Brief rundown of specs is:
Barrel: 26 inch M24 contour 5R Broughton
Action has been blueprinted and trued
Fat Bastard muzzle brake (makes the recoil about as the same as a 223)
McMillan A5 stock
Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50 illuminates mil dot scope with badger base and rings.

Is there any interest in something like this or am I going to have to go to gun broker? Was thinking of asking $4500 for everything plus including some extras.

Thanks.

Also I know it’s bit a WTS thread I am just seeing if there is interest.

I suspect your rifle is worth far more to you than it will be to someone else. No offense intended, but I can't imagine you getting someone to pay $4,500 for it.

For $4,500 someone could build a brand new custom rifle to their exact specs -- or come close to getting a new AI, etc.

I think you will also find few people who want a custom rifle based on a Winchester action -- most prefer Remington or a Remington clone.

I recommend keeping your rifle and enjoying it.

Barrel is a consumable, and since it's already had some rounds down range, won't really be worth much to a potential buyer. With .300WM you're talking 1500 rounds +/- life expectancy?

Can't comment on the Winchester long action itself, but I know you can buy an R700 for about 350-450?

Brake won't add much.

McMillan A5 stock; you're better off selling this separately if you really need the funds.

The Leupold scope as well is better off sold alone.

If the rifle really is your pride and joy, just keep it. You'll never get what you want out of it.

You'll never know until you post it for sale with a price.

Parting out is the way to go. Scope and rings, barreled action in the stock, maybe just the stock if you can find a buyer. The Win action is an oddball in the precision shooting world.

^^^ I agree. $4500 would buy a LOT of brand new custom rifle. I'd part it out if it was mine, and no offense meant, but I doubt I could get 45 for it whole or parts. The used market is just too tough; unless you find a casual purchaser who's not done all the homework and wants to avoid inconvenience, you're bound to come up against the "what's your bottom dollar" types.

Remember it is YOUR pride a joy and that does not mean it is someone else's or they would be willing to spend what you want for it.

Realistically a $2000 - $2500 package if you're lucky.

I've seen too many bolts in the marketplace to hope for $3k for this package.

There is always a chance man. I once got $1200 for a pistol I posted for Trade only.... but because forum rules require a price (even on WTT ads) I put $1000. The guy must have really wanted it.

I saw a custom Winchester model 70 heavy barrel for $600. Still kick myself for not buying it. That action isn't as popular as the Remington. I love it but I'm in the minority.

I doubt you would get 2500$. The money is in the stock and scope and the stock is not likely that desirable since it’s for a Winchester action.

I would keep it if I were you. You’ll never get what it’s worth to you.

It seems like whenever you go to buy something, it’s as if you’re buying gold. But when you go to sell it, people treat the thing like it’s a highpoint with a barrel obstruction.

If you don't have to sell it, keep it. I learned from my lesson that everything I have sold here, it's usually much less than what I've paid. Just like cars, guns depreciate in value I guess.
