current value over 2K a used not NIB sold for 1975.00

used in good shap in more common calibers are getting around 7-800 right now

in 1954 about 150-180 dollars

pumps never really got as big as they should have because you could get a lever for about half the price some old adds had a Rem about 160 while a M94 was 80 in the same add.

it was one of the lesser common calibers

30-06 was around 70% of all of them made with 270 next the only other caliber to be made from 51-81 followed by 308 and 243 being the other most common made from 55-81

257 roberts was only made from 1954 to 1961 in the 760

222 and 244rem being the least common only manufactured a few years
