Default Remington Model 8 in 30 Remington

I spotted a unique looking rifle on the wall of my lgs and found out it was a Remington Model 8 in 30-30 Remington. It had a dovetail sight and a peep sight and the finish was worn but they were only asking $400. Do you guy have any input on the collectability of this rifle?

Is it 30-30 or .30 Remington? They are not the same cartridge.

It has to be a .30 Remington basically a rimless 30-30.

There are some desirable variations but most will have a straight stock.

Sold one with the curved stock in.25 Remington for $900 plus several years ago to a collector.

Depending on condition $400 may be a good deal. Cases and data are readily available.

If it's shootable, that's a buy it now price. I don't know what the most produced caliber was, but I see 300 Savage for sale most, and they're usually $500 or more.

OP, keep in mind that those are not easy to scope. It is a D&T proposition. So, if you want more that the barrel-mounted rear sight, you are looking at a peep. If the peep sight is one of the expensive ones, then factor that into the cost.

If it is in original condition, not reblued and not refinished, and the barrel is excellent, and the peep is a good one, then $400 is a deal.

That is a reasonable price for what you described. I wouldn't consider it a spectacular deal, but well within reason. .30 Remington brass is available sporadically, but it is not impossible to find. Standard .30 caliber bullets can be used, though be aware that the cartridge is on par with .30-30, so bullets designed for .300 Magnum may not open properly on game. Stick with regular bullets, or even those designed for .30-30. Other than that, if it floats your boat, go for it. They are fun rifles.
