Our Assessment: This is a Nice Remington Model 600 Magnum, High Power Carbine chambered in .350 Remington Magnum. It has a beautiful laminate stock, deep blue finish and a strong bright bore that is topped with a full length ventilated rib. It even comes in its original shipping box. This rifle was only made for a few years and it is rare to see one chambered in .350 Rem. Mag., especially in such great condition. This will make for a Nice looking “Guide Gun”. In 2003 Remington introduced the Model 673 Guide Rifle as an updated version of the Model 600 Magnum. One of the 4 caliber choices was, of course, .350 Rem. Mag. Sadly the Model 600 & Model 673 are are longer produced. Good luck.
