    Marlin .375 - price check?

    Yesterday I stopped by a local gun/sports shop to look at some reloading equipment. Of course I had to swing by the used rifle rack . There I found a Marlin Model .375 with round barrel, and half length magazine. It looked unfired, had one small mar on the butt stock and had a leather Marlin-embossed sling. I am guessing it came from an estate, and there were a couple of nearly new looking .30-30s as well. It would look good next to my .38-55/.32-20/.45-70/.44 Mag Marlins. Is $499 a fairly good price for this rifle?

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    I think the price of $499. is not out of line.Most of these I have seen on the auction sites are about $400-$600.

    That would be a "buy now" price. Any you could get off of that price is gravy. DP

    I'd snap that up in a heartbeat.........after some brief negotiations. I don't think the price is out of line, in that condition.

    Re: Marlin .375 - price check?

    Thanks guys -

    Not sure why I posted this thread anyway. I don't NEED a .375 Win Marlin in near mint condition..... but .... went back this morning to beat the crowd and bought it. Not sure if it was there yesterday, but the receiver had a 1" scratch on it I didn't remember - so I figured I had better get it off of that "public look and grab" rack before it got more beat up. The salesman came down $25 - which covered the background check fee - so technically I got it for $475. I don't think this thing has had a box of shells put through it.

    Hmmm ... now log on to Midway, some dies, some brass, cast or jacketed bullets I'll clean it up and post a picture later.

    OVW, Of course you NEED it.How else are you suppose to take of that addiction called Marlinitis
    I shoot the Hornady 220FP in 375 brass in mine.I have recently started using Lyman 264gr cast in 38-55 brass in it also with good luck.
    Enjoy your new found rifle.

    Re: Marlin .375 - price check?

    I was hoping you'd snag it, I hate the thought of a nice rifle in my favorite Marlin caliber languishing on the shelves of a dusty gunshop over the holidays.........alone......unloved.........neglec ted. (Sob). It's more than I can bear. :P

    If you sniff around there are more different cast bullets of varying weights than one might think, my M-375 seems to prefer the heavier (>250 grains) weights, though it shoots the Hornady 220's into happy little groups. I think a 270-280 grain bullet is a good combination of weight and velocity, I'm still working on finding the right mold for mine.

    Enjoy the holidays with your new friend.

    Re: Marlin .375 - price check?

    Well - it must have been fired a few times. I ran several patches down the bore and it came out nice and shiny. Other than a nick on the stock and small scratch on the receiver - it looks new. Think I will take it out with the .38-55 and compare the two - just have to work up some loads.

    Thanks for the positive reinforcement - I know I can count on you guys the next time I find a nice Marlin in the used rifle rack

    Looks just like mine Old Vark cept mine had been shot more than yours and you got a sight hood and I didn't. I paid $600 plus shiping and was happy. I think you got a very good deal! Iffen you load it up to full potential it do kick a bit more than the 38-55 but not a lot. I'm thinking my new to me 356 is gonna recoil a bit more!
