Hello all...I'm new here. I never was much a fan of the 30-30 round, but I guess as I get older, I'm really starting to appreciate it. And I don't own a lever gun so I'm thinking that it would be nice to have one. I found one for sale locally and I'd like to get some opinions of what would be a fair price for this rifle. I have included the photo of it below and a brief description. If I'm figuring the serial number correctly, the rifle is from 1977. Any advice from you experts would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
Marlin 336c with Redfield 2 3/4 wide angle scope. Serial number 2306**** In good condition with manual.
With the scope?
I would say 250 to 300 maybe 350 here.. but they are going up fast in price as used it getting harder to find where they know about the plant moving ..

I'd say that would bring $400+ in this area with the nice looking Redfield on top. Every part of the country commands different prices. That looks like a nice rifle to me.

Warner, welcome to MO. Nice looking Marlin you have found, from what I see in the picture, around here $300 to$350 easy. The action should be smooth and sound. Should you get that Marlin, more pictures and of course a range report. You will find the 30/30 to be a very accurate and fun rifle to shoot, it is usually more accurate than the shooter. Take care and enjoy, John.
Just keep on keeping on.

$250-$275 in the Pacific Northwest. I have the same scope on mine!

You're looking at two things, the rifle and the scope. The rifle is worth $250 +/-. The scope, if still in excellent shape is worth perhaps $75-$100. A fair price would be $325-$350, IMHO. Of course, make sure you like that scope. I've owned one and agree that it is a nice scope, well suited to the rifle.

A rifle that old that looks that good probably has not been shot much. That combo is $400 in my nape of the neck.
