Not sure of the value of the 770, but a casual search on the 700 in 30-06 runs out at a min $900, so judge from that. I have a Rem. Model 4 in 30-06, and IMO, no trades are comparable.

Absolutely not! That would be like trading a 55 Chevy for a 74 Pacer. He's trying to screw you- around here that gun is one of the most sought after guns there is.

It would be a great trade, for HIM. And you would regret doing it.

The 770 is about a $300 gun. Basically a Walmart or low end starter gun. The 700 starts at about $700 and goes up from there depending on model and stock. Synthetic stocks, especially plastic are generally at the cheaper end with wood being more expensive. Unless the guy is starting with an offer to throw in five Benjamins I would not give him the time of day.

Terrible Idea...:NO NO NO:

IMO we are missing out on some details you left out of your post...

You stated this guy wants to trade? How did he come to that conclusion??? Or determine a trade was even possible??? Unless I am missing something here? How did the thought even develop??? Kindly advise.

Seems there is some details/facts missing. Bottom line a bad trade for you but an good one for whomever the guy (HE) is!

Want to know more? Visit a local gun shop and inquire.

Got a Cabela's flyer in the mail yesterday. The 770 with black synthetic stock and a mounted 3-9x scope is $259, choice of calibers.

I wouldn't trade my tack-driving 700 for 3 770's.
