It is possible that it is the only one of it's kind left.


I have nothing clever to put here.

You know I would love to have that one! What a beauty!


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

But if you sell yours it would be good to get a base price for the insurance claim he has not finalized yet.

I bought one like that used 25 years ago. Not quite as pretty as yours but still in very nice condition. It was a tack driver with Nosler portions. I traded it off as it was to valuable due to the caliber for to keep as I would have dropped it's value greatly from dings and such.
Great find. Super rifle.

Nessmuck, if I came into possession of that rifle it would get shot. I would baby it but it was made to shoot. Value isnt the main thing with me. I wouldn't sell it. One of my kids or grandkids would inherit it when I die.

That would go nicely with my other 760's in .222 and .243 calibers and since I have two other rifles of different makes in .257, I have plenty of ammo for it. C'mon, Rob, make me a deal.

It doesn't belong to me, it belongs to a family friend and he is willing to sell it and has a standing offer of $2500.

I have the same gun in 30-06 that my dad bought in 1954 from Sears. He shot his first buck that year when the Wisconsin kill was about 25,000. I have used that gun since 1989, cant tell you how many times I have been on on stand opening day thinking about Dad and a buck showed up. It has killed a bunch

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

Funny, about ten years ago there were 257 Roberts, 308 and 243 for sale all over gunbroker, way more common to see on there than 270 or 30-06. Growing up the only calibers I knew they were made in was 270 and 06, my dad has a 270 he bought used when he was 12 years old, I used that gun a lot growing up and shot a lot of stuff with it. Bought one just like it off a friend probably at least ten years ago now. I own a lot of rifles but I grew up using one of those pumps and when it comes time to throw up to your shoulder and shoot at something, particularly something running in the timber, that is the gun I want in my hand.

I always wanted one of the carbine models, knew a couple guys who had them, but they are rare to find that anybody is willing to sell.
