    I bought it in about '98 I think. It was an impulse buy. It was on sale and the salesman told me I needed it so I bought it. It's been sitting at the back of my safe since. I decided to pull it out, clean it and do some research for a possible sale. The rifle is a SigArms model SHR-970 in 30-06. Made in Switzerland is stamped on the side. It appears to have a 4 or 5 round magazine. If I recall correctly, the salesman told me that this rifle uses an interchangeable barrel system. I researched it on the internet and found zero info. The store I bought it at closed it's doors several years ago. SigArms does not list it on their site. Can anyone give me a rough idea of what to ask if I decide to sell? The scope is a Redfield which I heard is no longer. The bipod is Harris. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, never thought to look on Gun Broker. Looks like their not really worth much. If I were to sell it I wouldn't lose money nor would I make a killing. Never heard much on these rifles, are they not very popular?

    This SHR-970 was an el cheapo version - both in fit & finish and in price. Serviceable but not much better than, say, Savage.

    I think it was the Sauer 202 that had the interchangeable version.

    Well, I'm not a gunsmith so I cannot properly rate the fit and finish, but in all honesty it looks pretty good to me. Late last nite I found the paperwork and the tool that is required to make barrel changes. So I can say 100% w/o a doubt that this rifle does use the interchangeable barrel system. However, I did a quick search on line and have found no barrels, as a matter of fact, I have found no parts for it at all. Guess that's why they're not to popular.
