Old school camo remingtons

Post by HoltBensley » August 11th, 2019, 3:54 pm

I’ve noticed that the Old Remingtons kick everyone was on has slowly came to an end for now.. hopefully the prices on them drop also! That being said I’m still in search of a Greenleaf or original bottomland 1187-870s

The ones I’ve seen at gun shows the finish didn’t seem to hold up well. Or maybe we used to much deet back then!

I bought a Greenleaf 870 with some paint chipped for 500 wish I could find some more in that price range without a whole bunch of finish gone! Some of these prices I see they are brining in is ridiculous!

I heard the greenleaf and/or treebark hydro film was going to be available soon. If so, that will really take the wind out of the fad since everyone will be able to dip theirs for > $200.

Mossy oak is already offering a Greenleaf hydrodip but in my opinion it is not even comparable to the actual Greenleaf finish they once done at Remington.

I don’t get it. I like Remington turkey guns but can’t fathom why they are a grand because of the camo

I can’t wrap my mind around it either. I have a few of them but just can’t grasp the thought of spending a grand on one

I own an original Green Leaf 11-87 that I bought brand new in the early 90's and I own a new one with 28" barrel. There is no comparison in quality but I don't think that the old ones are worth some of the prices I have seen them go for. BUT in saying that, I would not sell mine for any amount, way to many memories!

There are still plenty of guys out there who are willing to pay $$$ for them. I own a “few” myself. I have never paid crazy money for any I have bought and know of several out there that can be had for decent prices.

11/87 Greenleaf just sold today for $1175 on Gunbroker. To all of you who are saying it’s over sure doesn’t seem it.

I bought the whole collection over a multi-year timeframe before this movement became extremely popular. I can promise you that the camo is infinitely better in quality and color than any aftermarket original pattern dip that I've seen, but I understand those that can't justify the price of today's market value on the OG guns. For me, it was a part of owning turkey hunting history that allured me into the purchases. A rare opportunity to own the first generation of turkey guns and being able to physically hold and display the evolution into the guns we carry today. I know a lot of hunters are buying because it's trendy, but I think there are many who bought them for similar reasons as I did 10 years ago.
