Default Selling a rare rifle - Omega III 7mm Rem Mag

I will never use it, it has never been shot, fairly rare. Where do I go for a price? Only defect is a single small dent in the stock behind the bolt. Time is NOT of the essence in the sale. FIL was one of the original investors.

I have enough for the apocalypse. Shotguns work better anyway.

Not as rare as some think it is.

Condition is everything and a dent might not be good (it's not).

Do you have any pics, serial number etc?

I would seriously consider taking it to "Pawn Stars" for a free appraisal.

And then I would keep it.

Thanks Rob, when I get a chance I will post pictures. I know it has the big Leupold scope, other than the one idiot mark is in great/perfect shape, and a low number. I'd rather someone have it who will use/appreciate it - I never will! I have found the obvious info on it (the HIGH ROAD seems to have the most info), but think there are not that many unshot ones out there. May have a 308 as well...

You getting any weather?

My highly refined research narrows down the value of that piece to be between $3,000 and $60,000.

Is the serial number an S-1 or S-3.

My grandfather had 1 of the non S serial numbered guns. It is still in the funny, unfortunately with someone who cannot appreciate it. Depending on condition, serial number and lineage, the price is anywhere from $3k to $100k. Its an interesting piece of firearms history, but IMHO not a great rifle.

I would list it on gunbroker myself or list it with a auction house that specializes in high end guns.
