Marlin Guide Gun Value?

Recommended Posts

Gents, a friend from my club is selling his 45/70. I am going to buy it. It is an 1895 GS. JM STAMP, not remlin. What do you think a fair offer would be? Can anyone look this up in the gun values book for me? Condition I believe is about 90 percent typical wear from hunting. Same gun pictured in link below. Thanks guys .

600-700 is fair.

I would assume increased  value being a JM? New they are selling for around $750

I bought a blued one with a ported barrel and a 39A both for $600. Both in excellent condition.

Ha ha I bought one last year also had to have one. Don’t knowIf it will see the woods or not. Nice little handy rifle though with a big punch.

If you really want it, buy it regardless of the price.  Being an original JM Marlin it'll only increase in value.

I bought that same gun in stainless/ black walnut a few years back. It’s a great gun to own and I enjoy shooting it. Just something about those big bore lever actions.
