Default 541X Remington

Gentlemen: While searching through my firearms, I found a 541X Remington, still in the bright aluminum packaging. I completely forgot that I had it! Wow, old age is fun!! I am thinking of selling it, but can't find any price guide. Do any of you have any idea of it's value? Thanks!

Hello!

I just bought one on here about a month ago. It was a nice 541X in nearly new condition. Stock was a hair dry, but coats of BLO for a week or so made it a true beauty.

Sold for $500 shipped and I was very happy with it. I think if you sell it at that price it will sit for a few days until someone looking for one comes along, but it will sell.
Being that it's in the foil, you may try to get a few more dollars out of it, couldn't hurt!

Hope this helps.

From what I can gleam off the sales boards thats about right some starting at $400 all the way up to $500, but new in the silver should command a higher price. Might have caught me last week before I got my Kimber from Gotafish and I would have made an offer as I have an old 510 I love to shoot still

Exactly. The one I bought for $500 was in like new condition and the stock has both interesting grain AND figuring/striping to the birch.

If yours is in the VCI I'd expect upwards to $600 for it.

I sold one in sealed VCI wrap for $650.00 a couple of years ago after purchasing one in as new condition but not in box or wrap for $400.00 shipped. The rifle I purchased for $400.00 also had a dry but perfect stock and multiple coats of BLO rehabbed it very nicely. I think the range of numbers previously quoted are definitely in the ballpark.

They did not manufacture many of these rifles. They only made them for 3 years: 1984,(1181) 1985(7078),1986(818) total of 9077.
I do not really use mine as it has a hard trigger pull. One day I will take it apart and polish it. I wonder if it will ever be a collectible?

Less than 10,000 were manufactured, which is a very small number. How many 10/22 have been made?
The rifle has it's roots in the Remington 788 action. The 788 rifles are very desirable and highly regarded for their accuracy. The commercial versions of the US 541X are very hard to find and command top prices. Will it become a collectable? IMHO it already is.
The trigger will respond wonderfully to a good stoning and polishing. I did just that on one of mine and it's a very smooth, crisp 5 lbs., though you'd swear it was 2.5 lbs. Only minus is that 5 round mags are rather hard to find.
