With exception of early 1100's,some of the .22's and those cool old Model 8 autoloaders I've never been much on Remingtons. Handled a very nice Number Six in .270 the other day. It was at $750.00. So have Remmies jumped?

Model Six is a pump action made from 1981-'87. Calibers were 243-6MM -270- 30-'06 and 308. Some had very nice wood and were high polished bluing. They usually bring pretty high prices. The problem is finding one for sale especially in Pa. Pumps and levers very popular in Pa. deer woods.

No semi auto hunting in Pa. Give it a few year's and all the state's will be the same. Personally I like a lever action in thick brushy country. A bolt action with a scope seem to big in the thicket's. If your hunting field's in farm country the bolt action is the way to go.

I have noticed the Remington 870's and the 1100's have gone way up going by the prices people are paying on Gunbroker. You could get either under $500. around here just a couple of years ago. Now you can't find them. The guys at the gun shop that did my transfer Friday on the Marlin 120 said they can't get any shotguns right now. I have not noticed the rifles but like horseshoe said above all the guns have gone up.

There maybe certain remingtons that are going up in price but I was at my local gun store and they had a bunch of new bolt actions that the can not sell even at "sale prices".

Older 1100's and 870's have been up for quite a while.

Thanks' exSW I was not aware that you can small game hunt with a semi. I use to live in Adam's county. My 50 + year old bone don't like the cold damp climate of Maine so much anymore. You never know I might wind up back in the Susquehanna River valley again. I do miss the Gettysburg area.

It's farely recent. I didn't know until my son told me. I think its just .22 caliber rimfire and center. So you can use an AR platform for coyotes.

People in my area are now buying up all the shotguns left, due to no ammo for handguns and rifles. Now the shot shells are starting to run out. A LGS/range near me said they are paying $38.00 a box for 9mm FMJ and selling them for $42.00, but only if you are using the range. Their consignment gun shelves which were full a few weeks ago are almost empty.
