    Fair market price for a used 30-30

    Hey guys I am in the market for a nicely used marlin 30-30 but the problem I am having is that all the local gun shops are expecting nearly new prices for even a fairly used rifle with some signs of wear on the gun ( minor scratches on the stocks and slight blems of the bluing). I would like to know what a fair price on a gun of his sort in good condition should be so I know what to offer the dealer and still be fair or just walk away.

    Re: Fair market price for a used 30-30

    Provided it was in good shape, I would pay just as much for an older 336 as I would for a new one. You cant beat a pre safety model that is in good condition. Many people buy guns and they seldom if ever get shot. Even my old 30-30 probably doesnt see more than a box or two of ammo a year. I havent seen a good 30-30 in a pawn shop in quite some time, that being said, I am not in a big area for pawn shops. However, when one does come in, it dont last long. The best place to get a good idea on what prices are running is using GUNBROKER. Just remember that whatever the gun sales for your also gonna pay a FFL fee and shipping. Those two combined run $50 to $60.

    .

    In my area such a rifle would sell for $300 approximately. Pawn shops ask more but will usually come down.

    Prices in my area are pretty much like where Cajun is. I once paid as much as $280 for a really nice pre-safety 336C .30-30 (about 95-98%) in a private sale at a gun show.

    Re: Fair market price for a used 30-30

    Since last big scare, prices are starting to come down. Not fast, but returning to something sane. Houston area - Asking prices are down to $300ish depending on condition. Pretty well matching a new walmart model. Winchesters are still high at $450(+). A broken stocked, straight stock Texan 30-30 just went for $200. I'm watching 3 right now at a pawn shop. 336 RC (1956? - not waffle top) asking price $300, a 70's model with a TASCO & rust at $250 and a newer safety model also at $300.

    Since I have 4 - 30-30's, I'm not in a hurry. Though that RC is NICE!

    Around here, you see used ones in great shape for $375 or $400. I bought my last two for $300 and they were in good shape & great shape. I paid $375 for a 336C in 35 Rem, & I'd pay that again if it was one without the safety in good shape. They just don't make'em like that any more.

    If you can make it to a gun show at least in the Charlotte area I can find good ones almost every show for $300. Bought a few that way. Just picked up a Glenfield 30GT for $300 at a Pawn Shop today. Metal looks like it was lightly used but birch stock needs refinishing. Good luck.

    Re: Fair market price for a used 30-30

    In my area 336C's fetch from $300 to $365, with the higher range being for guns in 90-95% condition. The price might be lower for really beat up rifle. However, I find it pays to carefully look at a bunch and evaluate yourself as to what you feel the condition is. I've seen some at the lower price range that I felt were better condition than the higher priced guns.
