Seen everything from $6000-12,000+

They are so rare and sell so infrequently putting a value on one is difficult

Here are photos of Michwoods Remington Model 8 "U.S. Trials Rifle". It is in outstanding condition.

Although the receiver # and barrel assembly # does not match, they are both authentic numbers. This mismatch is not uncommon and is known on 2 other Trials rifles. Of the 21 rifles produced, we have verified 12 to exist as either complete rifles, or mismatched rifles.

Its going to be for sale/tarde if I can figure out what its worth, the book are not much help, it would be easy if it was graded, Its more of a investment gun than something I wood take hunting
