Martin I got my Rem 700 with a Nikon Monarch 2.5-10 scope, badger ordinance rail and rings, for $650 shipped off of AR15.com, there are some great deals if you go used. Mine had a box through it to sight it in, otherwise it was new. Its a 308 and a tack driver. Everyone's buying tacticool guns right now the hunting market is strong and not priced at idiot prices.
The stock leaves something to be desired otherwise it's a fine bolt gun.
