If the rifle is in good shape and the barrel is not shot out then it is a good price on the gun. The triple duce though is a round that has been outclassed by the .223. Had the US Army used it instead of the developed .223 it would be more available with more offerings. It is a fine round and not a barrel burner like the .220. Look at being able to get ammo and cost and then have fun.

I inherited a Sako made in the early 60's in 222 rem. I love that caliber. Ground Hogs hate it. I know your Dad will be happy.

Remington 700 ADL, good-very good condition depending on the year. $395 is a good retail value, if bluing looks good, very few scratches/blemishes/discoloration in the stock, and clean bore with no pits. Being .222, it is a bit more collectible, so at the right auction, with the right people bidding on it, it could bring maybe $500 or a little over, even. Being able to pay on it bit by bit, without any interest/added charges, you'd have a good deal. If it comes with a decent scope you can add about $10-$75 extra, sling, add about $20 extra to the value.
Generally, in order to get a more accurate idea of gun values, it is a good idea to include Serial Number, date of manufacture, and a few pics wouldn't do any harm, either.

just thought i'd add that if this gun didn't mean so much to my dad i'd tell this guy to stick it up his hind end and pull the trigger. but dad has always wanted one like this and i know he'll love it. so i'll deal with the guy til i get it.

Contract Law 101:
In order for a contract to be a legal contract, there needs to be a few elements involved:
1. Offer. The seller made an offer to sell the rifle, and from what I've read, the seller also made the conditions of the sale known.
2. Acceptance. The Buyer accepted the offer, including the conditions (making payments without interest until paid off) that the Seller placed on his offer.
3. Consideration. The Consideration in a contract is the mutual benefits derived or promised to be derived by entering into the contract. In this case, the Consideration is the exchange of time payments without interest (monetary value total sum of $395) for the buyer to receive the product (rifle).
If during the "arms-length" negotiations there were no misrepresentations of material facts, and the parties to the contract were considered as being competent parties at the time of the contract being executed, then the contract is in force. Pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), a verbal agreement which is for less than 12 months is a binding contract. Moreover, any subsequent changes to a contract after the initial effectuation thereof, necessitates agreement by the parties to the contract in order for any amendment to the contract to exist. Any unilateral amendment to the initial agreement is otherwise a breach of contract within itself.
Hope this helps.
