Remington 541-S

Found a very nice 541-S sporter barrel and was wondering what the going price is on these I have a 541 THB but wanting the S to go along with it. Any help on pricing would be appreciated

Good condition
$600 super deal
$700 good deal
$800 grab it if in good shape
$900 can be found if you shop around
$1000 I think this is to high unless it has an extra special stock

I have a standing offer from two buyers for my mint condition 541-S that was built in 1976. One is at $800 and the second guy is at $900. The one at $900 wants it real bad and probably would go a grand. I have had a long run with the Remington 541-S rifles since 1973 until now having owned eight. I only had one I wish I would have never sold. They are nice rifles but even being a Remington guy I think they is some hype thrown out there about how great they are. Half of mine were good shooting sporter rifles and the other half were below what I would rate as good. One was outstanding and the one I have now would be up there with the best one. Personally I like my Grand Finale 452's much better. I like the feel and the looks better than the Remington and all five GF's shoot as well as the 541-S and three of them are better shooters than the Rem.

Like any gun, good wood is going to jack the price up. Original condition means everything. Being re-crowned, stock hogged out and bedded, extra action screw installed, finish knocked down, sling swivels installed in stupid places, re-blued ,etc; is a big deal and it will be evident in a very few short years. A lot of early guns have later model bolts or 541T bolts also. After year 78, guns will generally bring a little more to a collector. If not original I will give you $500 for it, if it has the original trigger. One in original condition with very few handling marks and fair wood will bring $1000. The same gun with a hogged out and bedded stock will bring $600 from me. Nice gun, slightly above average wood and the owner knew enough to add grease to the rear of the bolt where it rotates inside the receiver will bring $1200. Very good wood, and almost like new, I paid $1500 for the last one I bought like that. There is generally three or four on gunbroker all the time. I wouldn't give $600 for most any of them. They sell for much more than that but since they sell I guess that is what they are worth. Keep in mind that one day you will pay full price and then find out what buyers of pre 64 70's found out , all of a sudden their re-done gun wasn't worth much anymore, for the reasons I mentioned above. I expect to pay $1000 for a nice, average original specimen. I have owned more than a couple dozen of them. Someone mentioned CZ's different class of rifle take that any way you feel!

High condition 541S rifles will always be of interest to the collector or demanding sporter rifle shooter. Also the limited run of maple stocked 541T and 541THB rifles bring lots of dollars in NIB or LNIB condition.

I wish this were true. From what I've seen on my usual haunts....trending much much higher

I paid $700 for this one about 6 months ago, first I've seen locally for under $900 in a long time.





That included the Leupold 2-7x Rimfire Special scope, I felt pretty good about the price, does have a scratched up spot on the left side of the stock.

Would a “Junior Model” 541T bring less than the full sized version?

That looks to be a 521-T. (Perhaps that is the designation for a "junior" 541-T?)

521 is based on 511. Little brother to 513 target rifles. Different than the later 541 581 series.

Not factory. Could be a Canjar made trigger that was added. Also made for the 788.

Hard to see any "parentage" from that pic. But then I had never heard of a 521 "little brother" to the 581/541. The 513 has a very different look.

The 521 is the same general shape as the 513T. It weighed less than 7#, slimmer contour 25" barrel, and I assume a little shorter stock
