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.
