    Value

    I have a 1962 700 .270 with a 20” barrel. Serial number is 149x. I was wondering the value of it I would say it is 90% also does the 4 digit serial number add to the value? Thank you.

    Content update

    John Lacyís book indicates model 700 production began with serial number 1000 in 1962. Thus, yours was one of the first 500 model 700 rifles produced with a probable barrel date code of AJ, indicating March of 1962. It is one of 2,693 ADLís or 1,142 BDLís produced in 270 Win. that year. If its in all original condition with no alterations, even in 90% condition, it will have a certain level of collector interest. In the current model 700 used market conditions, values are up a bit.

    The 20" barrel (carbine length) caused me to look up Remington catalog offerings; both ADL & BDL non magnum calibers were all 20" barrels in 1963 assuming would be the same for 1962. I pay close attention to the firearms market and considerable increased demand for older Remington firearms. While this doesn't help you NOT putting a "value" on your 700, MSRP for 1963 ADL was $115 and BDL $140.00. You need to determine which model you have then let us know.

    I think the one constant for 700s is the ADL has a blind magazine and the higher end models have a hinged floorplate on the magazine.
