It probably will. It should be fun to watch at the end...

That's an awful lot of money for a rifle. And I'd pay it if I had it...

That gent has had that and the 22mag listed numerous times and no sale as of yet. See he dropped the price on the 22LR a few hundred, used to both be same asking price.

I doubt it will at that price, in this economy. But some people are wealthy and may get the itch.. B2B

If I had that much disposable income I would put it toward better transportation not a CLOSET QUEEN 22.

That's a good point. For most of us it would represent an investment. But for the wealthy it would be just another shooter used to impress others at the country clubs shooting range.

It is perhaps the most beautiful 40X that I have ever seen. Wonder what it went for new.

Too bad Remington doesn't still offer it in a repeater. I think he's asking repeater price for this single shot version.

Will it sell?

Even if I had the money, which I don't, it would have to have much better wood for that kinda money even if it is unfired etc.

To be a collector's item it needs a better provenance than "We've never bothered to see if it works." It needs to have been owned and used by someone notable or be very old, interesting or rare. Factories pour out hundreds of new guns every day. Being "Like new" isn't enough. I'd offer $300 at most.

George - you bring up a good point and when I looked more closely at this 40XR Sporter a couple things I noticed when compared to a 40XB sporter/repeater:

1) There is a significantly different profile (almost 'generic') to the milling of the stock (when the bolt is closed)... and somewhat 'rough' milling of the stock around the ejection port of the revcr. :





2) Compare to a 'late' 40XB Sporter/Repeater:





3) Attention to detail/care on 40XB 'hand checkering':






4) Level of detail/care on 40XR 'hand checkering':






Again, these are all minor things, but something I noticed on this fine 40XR Sporter...The neat thing (to me) about these rifles is that each one has its 'nuances' that make it unique to the buyer... Again, different moments in time in the evolution of these fine rifles.

In these economic times, I don't see it selling.
Flat out gorgeous though.

Remington for 4+ grand

Snakewood is considered the rarest wood on the planet. It only comes from Surinam. Personally I never thought it was very slick although I have only seen pictures of it but really rare.

Assuming you could get a piece big enough for a gunstock you could pick it up for around $700 or so. There are people that are on waiting lists for that stuff looking for planks and those do pop up now and again. Supposedly you can go through England to get em.

Throw in another say $500 for a pro stock maker to rough cut you a stock and inlet it, stuff is really hard, and tough to "machine", and you are up to around $1200-1300. Although from some of the posts I have seen on RFC it would not surprise me if some of those guys could inlet and do the stock.

To AJK47: I downloaded the pics also and "blew em up" and I am not impressed with the "machining" either, especially how the bolt handle fits.

I think this guy is smoking funny cigarettes asking 4+ for that.

$300? I will not be trying to sell him anything. I paid $2200. for the one I had. This one is overpriced and mine at $2300. I feel is overpriced. They are great guns for sure just really not worth what SOME people think they are. I wouldn't be all that surprised to see it sell, but I don't see them bringing that price in the future.
