    Prices for 760s vary by state. The desireable .35 Rem variation might bring $400 down here but less in Pennsylvania where they are more common. If you’re looking at it- what are they asking for it?

    If they start getting pricey just remember Henry has that new Lever in a 35 Rem, brand new with a life time warranty.

    325-400 depending on condition in my neck of the woods (Pa) most don't want a lowly and slow poke ctg like the 35 anymore even though I disagree fully with them .
    If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck!

    in PA average price is around $300 - 350. $400 is for near mint rifle.

    I think that in the Northeast heavier brush areas the .35 Rem is still very popular and would thus command higher prices. But out west where it is more open it wouldn't be popular due to its shorter range limitations. What they have already mentioned for prices seems reasonable to me too.

    If I had one I’d probably ream it out to .358 Win just to make it even cooler.......

    If you can get that for three to $400 you’re stealing it! Good luck but keep us posted. I have a limited edition model 7600 Remington carbine. You’d be lucky to find one to begin with and if so I bet you it would be no less than 1200 bucks on up because of the rarity. The 35 Rem is a rare caliber in the 7600 and I believe just as rare in the 760.

    I bought this one for my dad years ago. It started raining on Opening weekend this year so he went home and I decided to use his rifle and show him up...



    I have a twin to it I just set up in 35 Whelen. I used hand loaded 180 grain Speer hot cores at 2350 ft./s on these deer. The door hit far back in the liver and it went a good 40 yards in a circle and fell over. The other to deal with it ran in about a minute later they came trotting back to see what happened with this buck following. I shot the buck and it went three steps and fell over backwards.


    Whatever you end up paying for that gun you’ll get back out of it. Start googling a 35 Remington chambered in a model 7600 or 760 for sale and see what you find... You probably won’t find any...a very little. You’ll find the whelen because they just did a special order two years ago and they keep punching them out left and right. I special ordered my 35 Rem 7600 carbine back in 2004 for my dad and sweet talked the gun shop into switching the Woodstock set out for the Grey laminate for another 80 bucks. I bought another old inventory factory Remington laminate stock set for 169 or 189 bucks to put on my 35 whelen from numerics The fall before last.


    First time I ever shot anything with a 35 Remington I was a little paranoid and nervous because I didn’t have my old faithful 30-06 with me. Especially after I shot the first deer and it ran a good 40+ yards after a liver shot with just the tail end of a lungs hit. I redeemed myself with a better shot placement taking out both lungs and part of heart on the buck causing almost an immediate drop. My dad shot a buck low in the heart years ago the first year I bought the gun for him. It was about 2 inches from the base of the brisket almost missing it. The deer jumped up high in the air and ran about 40 plus yards out of sight and he found it down the hill. He said there was just enough blood to barely follow the trail. I put almost a fist size hole in it though, I was impressed.


    If they ask $6 to $650 for the gun it’s worth it all day long because in my opinion it’s worth $800 to 900 bucks because of the rarity. I’ve seen them go for more.

    I live in Ohio, handy to Pa, WVa and Ky. I'm partial to 35s for woods deer. I wouldn't pay very much for a 760 in any cartridge. The 760-742 series rifles have a poor rep around these parts. I would say no more than $300 for one in mint condition.

    These rifles use to be in style and demand, now that older guys don't want them and neither does the new generation, the prices are low. A Rem 14 or 141 is a much better gun if you want a pump.
    They will cost you more but are well worth it.

    Plus 1 on the Model 141s. A 760 seems like an awfully big and ungainly rifle for a relatively light cartridge like that. I like my 141.

    One day, I want a 760, but it'll be a .30-06. Seems like a .35 Whelen would be a good chambering for it too.

    760/742 series rifles have killed a lot of deer. They are meat guns good enough for woods ranges.
    Some love them and own ones that shoot 1" all day long. I've never been that lucky. I've had a dozen, only one bought one new in 1968, a 3006. It did 6" unless you loaded it down with heavy bullets, then it would do 3" at 100yd. Most of the ones I've owned were 3006 and 270. Last year took a 3006 on trade, 80% with Bushnell 3x9. Allowed $250 and after dragging around for a year got $250 for it. I want take another unless it's being given away.

    A lot of serious hunters around here in Northwoods WI have left their 740-742s at home and show
    up in deer camp with bolt guns. Me, my modern deer rifle is a Sav 110CL rebarrelled to 358 Win. Best setup out
    there for woods and moderately longer shots. 220 gr Speer clocks 2450fps, Paper patched 358318 /250 gr bullet clocks 2350fps.
    For variation, and old times, I drag out my M86, 45-70, or M92 44-40, or Marlin 336 CB 38-55.
    Indeed, though, the 35 Legend is interesting- But,If I were to decide to hunt with an AR, right now, I would take my 300 BO.

    900$ !!! Nuts, and I have a couple 760s. You can get you 2 nice 141s in 35 Rem for that cash, and have better rifles.

    Not trying to tell you I told you so but the 35 Rem a rare caliber in a 760 or 7600. I agree $350 or so range is about right for a used one in a common caliber but not in 35 Rem. The 35 Rem is one of the rarest calibers in the Remington 760/7600 pumpers. It’s like trying to buy a Remington 600 in 35 Rem VS 308. Your better off finding a used 7600 and have it rebored to 35 Rem if you want one. It will be cheaper in the long run. They are odd ducks. Id sure like a 141. My buddies dad has had one side he was a kid and drill deer with it every year. Neat gun and they never climbed in value. I tell you just to get a 35 Whelen as you can get a brand new one currently in limited runs. I paid $619 for mine the winter before last from Gryces gun shop on a 18.5” carbine. It has a metal trigger guard not like the production guns with plastic ones now. The only thing plastic on it is the magazine base. I’ll get an old school all metal one eventually.

    I’m down to three 7600s right now I have a 30-06, 35 Rem, and 35 Whelen. The 30-06 with my reloads shot a .4” inch group last fall sighting it in at 100 yards. When I originally load tested it years ago with the same 180 core loct hand load it shot a .6” inch group with it. The 35 Rem shoots .7” pretty consistently with a 180 grain hot core and a max load of powder. The 35 Whelen I haven’t had a chance to do any load testing yet. It shot around 1.25” with hornady 200 grain super performance ammo. Unimpressive in my book. I even lightened the trigger which I will probably reverse back to the original spring. I’ll have to load test it this year and find a good sub MOA load for it.

    You can always find a Marlin 336 cheap. I bought a 1970, 100 th anniversary 336 in 35 Rem about 10 years ago for $200 that looks like brand new. I don’t think it was ever shot or very little. It shoots .8” groups out of it with my same tight 7600 load.

    I would apply this logic to the 740, 742 (exclude the 7400’s) series of rifles, not the 760’s... the jamomatic reputation does not extend to the pumps. Opinions vary but this is from an ole KY holler hunter.

    To the original poster I still would not pay anything close to 900...

    Yep the 760’s and 7600’s are bullet proof pumps. The autos...740,742,7400’s, & 750’s you can toss in the trash imo. I wouldn’t pay anywhere close to $900 either for any 760/7600 but that’s the going rate on up for the rare calibers. The whelens were going for $1200 on average used and beat up before the “rerun”. I was watching For the last few years as I almost bought one before the re release. You can get an 06’ all day for $300 used If you look around and way more knock down to boot. That caliber in the the pumps are as common as mosquitoes in my area. You’ll also pick up another 400 FPS with 180 grain bullet vs 180 grain bullet comparison between the two calibers.



    Have some fun and try to find my lil 35 Remington 7600 carbine. They are non existent. I special ordered it for my dad back around 04’. Think it was around $589 with the stock switch. The last one I saw many years ago went for around 2g...not that I’d ever part with it. They are like my colt anaconda. The value skyrocketed as soon as the “consumer” panic set and people couldn’t get one.

    Me, I’d rather use my 30-06 7600 when I’m deer hunting anyways. The extra velocity and shock puts deer down faster.

    You were very lucky to find a 336 for $200. I haunt the Marlin Owners Forum also and they would tend to agree. Marlins in 35 R are not all that common either. I paid 400 a few years ago for mine and felt lucky to get it.

ID:	257365 I have not seen one like it since. As to the 35R, it has been good to me. I cannot claim that it is the sudden death cartridge some seem to claim. A lung shot deer is a lung shot deer and will run, but it has been a good rifle.
