When Remington ran the 30/06 Anniversary model, they also produced limited runs of non-cataloged calibers. Bill Hicks had a run of 500 ea of the .270, and .280 models. I know, 'cause I have an "unfired" .270 still in the box. Joe
Don't think you need to be calling anyone retarded. And yes I do know what the difference is between a 760 & a 7600. I own both. Probably the Limited Grice guns are the fewest made in the 7600. Like my 7600 in 7mm-08 from mid 90's.
Lets keep things civil around here ok.
You would be correct. Here is what I came across...
Although the receiver is stamped " ONE OF ONE THOUSAND ", only a total of 170 were manufactured. The left side of the receiver has the standard Remington roll engraved game scenes and the serial number of the gun. The right side of the receiver on this gun have the words:
"One of One Thousand " and the year 1999 or 2000 depending upon when it was made is on the receiver in gold.
There is a Benoit commemorative listed on Gunbroker.com right now. Starting price is $7500, a nice gun but not for that price. I have a 257 Roberts and believe they were only made 1 year (1992). I have no idea how many were made but they are extremely hard to find.
Keep an eye on Grice Gun shop, up semi-near you (Clearview,PA). They have custom run 7600's almost all of the time. This is where I picked up my son's 7600 in .35 Whelen. I know they have 7mm-08 and .300 Savages from time to time, I don't recall .257 Roberts though, you might want to give them a call. Their number is 814-765-9273.
I have a 35 Remington carbine in 7600 . Bought it 3 years ago. It was a Grice Limited run. Has a beautiful Walnut stock on it. (Not one of them ugly looking Maple stocks) Sorry just don't like the looks of the maple stocks.
