Well, I found the 788 in 6MM and he is pretty proud of it. Metal was nice but not perfect, stock was not terrible but did have a small chip out of the grip. The front and rear sights were missing which seems pretty normal from my dealings with the 788's. It had a Simmons scope which would be trashed if I owned it so I gave it a 7.5-8 out of 10. (This is without looking at the bore. I didn't do that but would if I bought it.) Now the proud part, $625 out the door. Its seems $550-$580 is about the going price on the internet and it also seems the 6MM's draw a little more money than some of the rest. Is that to much or about the going rate for this rifle? I'm not sure I want to invest that much in a 788 Remington considering the stock needs repaired or replaced, missing sights and age of the rifle.

You can do better in my opinion. I would be hesitant to shell out over $500 for one in very good condition.

Its in a Pawn Shop thats owned by a fellow gun club member. But like a lot of people, he thinks its old and not real easy to find, it must be worth a lot more money. They're out there, you just have to look for them.

I paid/traded $600 for my 22-250. Way more than it's probably worth but in the end i got rid of something i didn't want and got something i did.

I look at things this way always, if I want something and feel ok with the price I buy it. I would much rather buy a 788 for that price rather than some other rifles.

I forgot to mention for anyone who may not be aware Boyd's makes stocks, either laminated or walnut for the 788's now.

I remember Ram-line synthetic stocks was about the only

affordable choice back in the day.

Oh, opinions on the 788 build. Life is to short not to do

what you like. You will have a custom, good shooting 788.

Bought my Remington 788 (.308 Win) back in 1982 for $142.50 Shot upmteen deer with it over the years, and everything dropped pretty much where it stood. Can't say what the accuracy was like at long range since I never shot further than 200 yds, even out west. Still have it, but did change out the stock(still have the original) I never realized they were that popular. Just a tool that went bang everytime and did what it was advertised for.

Love the 'ol 788's. Have a few of them. My .223 is one of my favorite rifles and has taken a lot of critters and shot some tiny groups.

Keep her as is and work over the Savage.
