It clearly has been refinished so value wouldn’t be much, maybe $500 if you can find a buyer.

I’m not smart enough to figure out how to view these photos, but if it’s a shootable ’92, it’s got to be worth more than $500; more like $1000 unless something really awful has been done to it.

It’s a shiny refinish but not a bad one….definitely a shootable one…I think the 1000 ballpark is right given the market

It’s shiny – that is for sure.  But yes, I would say quite a bit closer to $1000 than $500.

That may very well appeal to some of the younger collectors. It does indeed have a high polish on the metal and a glossy finish on the wood. I think it’s attractive, just not something I’d buy.

That’s an easy 1000$, I have a similar refinish on a Model 8 Remington. Sorry It was a gift from a close friend after his uncle passed. The guys over at the Remington society like it.IMG_0624.jpegImage EnlargerIMG_0625.jpegImage Enlarger

I’m vulnerable to contributing to threads that jump off in different directions.  I too have a history with Remington M08’s (and some M81’s).  Even had some B and C grades.  It’s amusing as the first deer rifle I bought with my own money was a Remington M742 in .30-06.  Bought it new in the box from the hardware store.  I used it one year and got a buck with it.  It worked fine.  I traded it off.  The next deer I shot was with my Remington M08 (circa 1906) .35.  Still have it.  I recall being fascinated by the M08 action (much more-so than the M742 action).

The memories are still rolling in as I write this.  I recall when I bought the 742, it was not my first choice.  I was smitten with the Winchester M94 .44 magnum (post-63 of course). I was n junior high school at the time.  For many years I had routinely harvested all of the free catalogs at the various gun shops and hardware stores.  I always made sure to grab the Winchester catalogs.  That’s where I spotted the ’94 in .44.   

My Dad was not familiar with the .44 magnum, particularly in a rifle.  I recall going in a gunshop with him and he asked the clerk to show him a .44 magnum cartridge.  I recall him holding it in his hand, examining it and then saying to me, “I don’t think it would be much good for deer.”

I was enthralled first time I was shown how easily they break down.  I’d have liked to have found one in the right cond at the right price, but it just never happened. 

I agree with the gun store clerk about the .44 Mag.
