Default 141 Remington Gamemaster .35 caliber

What is a current value for a Remington Gamemaster Model 141 in .35 caliber? This gun looks practically brand new and it has not been refinished in any manner. Seller is asking $750 but I think he might negotiate some.

I'd say it's at the top of the retail value. The caliber is the most desirable in the 14/141.

An earlier Model 14 as opposed to the 141 may get that price easier in the same excl condition just because it's an older rifle.
But a lot of the value/pricing thing depends on where you are & if it's for a shooter and hunting rifle and not as a collector piece.

Tough to find these 14 and 141 rifles that aren't altered for recv'r sights and scopes, sling swivels and don't show some pretty 'honest' use.
Same for the 8 and 81.
Sometimes you just have to pay up early to get a really nice one!

JMO of course.

I agree. That is a great place to start and I would only add that you should check completed listings on GB, and further refine that to check only those that actually sold (not just a listing that expired, or bidding that did not reach the reserve amount). That is a popular short-range gun in my area and used ones sell in the $450-525 range at live firearms auctions. The price seems a little high to me, even in excellent condition.

Great old guns for sure back then. Last one I handled was priced at $375 but was in 25 Remington caliber and condition was only so-so. When I pumped the action I know what they meant by quality. Shooting Times did a review years back and said a Model 14 would cost around $3000 if made the same way today. Machine forged parts if I am correct.

I dabble in 14s-141s-8s-81s. Mostly 35s. $750 seems a tad high
to me for a high condition shooter. Guy probably has it priced
to guard against trades. The 14 & 141 usually haven't been D&T
for rear sight options. They are D&T for Lyman or Marbel sight.
These two plug screws are side by side at rear of action. What
I usually run into is guns that have been D&T for side mounts.
This is a big dock for me, -$100 if the rest of gun is very nice.
On all these older classic guns it's not a collector's item if it
has been refinished, D&T, or recoil pad added. It's a shooter
and doesn't command collector prices. The practical price of
gun would be closer to $600.

That's what I thought I'd offer, but I talked to the seller's buddy or business partner and asked him if he would consider a lower offer. He has no money in the guns as they are an inheritance from a relative.He told me the owner said he would probably just put them away if he couldn't get the prices from them he wanted. So, I doubt he is wanting to deal that badly. I might try again later if he still has it.

A good condition 141 in .35 Rem is likely to bring a price premium, as the ammunition is still available, even though it is a little difficult to find. I think the other calibers available were .25, .30, and .32 Remington, all of which are obsolete at present, with ammunition being difficult to very difficult to find. Although it is not difficult to convert .30-30 brass into all of those calibers if you have access to a lathe. I have recently seen several reasonably good 141s in .30 Rem priced in the $400-$500 range. One in .30 Rem would be attractive to me as I already have several Model 8 and 81 rifles in .30 Rem, and I presently have a fairly large accumulation of .30 Rem ammunition, much of which uses converted cases I have made from .30-30 brass. One can use .30-30 dies to reload .30 Rem.

In my area a 25-30-32 has to be in really nice shape to bring
$400. Guys who are willing to go to the trouble of making cases
want a nice condition gun. I bought a 14 in 32, that was good
Mechanical & bore but a little rough for $200. The only reason
I did that was to get the Tang Sight and 2 boxes of factory ammo
and brass that went with it. I drugg gun to several shows and
ended up taking $175 for it. I only keep 35s now, and one 81
in 300sav.

My .35 pump carbine made in May of 1941. I think they only made the carbines for about 5 years.
