Well, I can't believe it but I finally found a 600 in 35 rem in atleast 95% at a tiny little gun show last Saturday. I've been wanting one in that caliber for many, many years as my dad has one and I've loved it since is was a kid. it has a fairly low serial number and dated it at Dec. of 1964. My dads is feb of 1964 with a serial # of less than 4000. The stock is darker than most 600's I've seen and actually has some tiger striping going on. I put a Leopold 1.5x4x20 on it with the pig plex reticle. This will be a fair weather deer blind gun only!...

Congrats on a great find! For my money the 600 and the 788 were two of the best bolt action hunting rifles Remington ever made.

And to find one in .35 Remington is a REALLY great find - perfect whitetail woods rifle!

I love the 600's. Have seen several in 308, 243 and even one in 6mm rem which I should've bought. Great price on that 308 by the way. These things have almost turned into heirlooms. I put a leopold 1,5x4x20 pig plex on mine which is about identical to yours.

How does one find the value of a 600? Looking online I see prices from $500 to $2500 for new rare ones.

bought a couple of them back when they first come out.....both of them since rebarreled,,,one is now a 20 tactical and the other is a 6.5 TCU. Had one in 308 and swapped it off....that was the hardest kicking gun I think I've ever shot...LOL Never had a hankering for one in the 350 after that.

Congrats on a great find!

I found a good deal on a M600 in .308 a couple months ago and grabbed it for $340. Very handy rifles. I put a 30mm Weaver 1-5x24 on mine.
Are we talking about a 600 or a 660 here? I've had both and the 660 was a nicer gun and mine was very accurate. Seem's to me the 6.5mag and 350 both came in the 660. They had laminate stocks I though but my 308 didn't. Thea also had a raised rib running down the barrel, the 600 didn't.

The M600 was the first out. It had a raised rib and 18.5" barrel. I did come in both 6.5RM & .350RM with laminate stock. The 660 had a 20" barrel with no rib. It was also available in 6.5 & .350 with laminate stocks. The 600 Mohawk was a later issue of the M600 with 18.5" barrel without rib. I do not believe the that the M600 Mohawk was available in the magnum chamberings.

336ER is correct on all counts. The Mohawks had walnut stocks except the last ones-they had "walnut finished hardwood"- my friend had one in .223. My brother had a Mohawk 600/6mm that thought it was a bench rest rifle. It outshot my 788 22-250 several times- and that 788 was no slouch!
