    Marlin AS 30-30

    Hello,

    I am fairly new to this forum (posting a few messages on the 1894 site).

    Anyway, Does anybody have a Marlin 30 AS? I have a chance to buy a used one (sight unseen), which is supposedly 96% condition for $200. I don't know when it was made or their reputation. Actually, I was thinking of buying it for my almost 15 year old to hunt deer this fall (vs buying him a new gun). Do you think $200 is a good price or should I hunt down a 336, instead?
    ho are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?

    Marlin AS 30-30

    The 30 AS is basically the economy model of the 336, and the only real difference is the wood -- birch vs. walnut. If the condition is as decribed (96%), the price is a decent one.

    Marlin AS 30-30

    the 30AS is a 336 with an uncheckered hardwood stock with no grip cap or white line spacers, a simple bent sheetmetal rear sight in lieu of the more refined 336 rear and an unramped, unhooded front sight. It also has a forearm cap instead of a barrel band. A (pretty bad) pic of mine...



    The swivel studs are aftermarket.

    Marlin AS 30-30

    I have a model 30A, which is the predecessor to the model 30AS. Bought it in 1970 and for over 20 years it was the only gun I hunted with. If you are not looking for anything fancy, but just want a good shooter that works great this is a good buy.

    Model 30AS

    About two years ago I bought a Marlin Model 30AS 30-30 with a Tasco 4x scope for $200.00 from a co-worker that needed cash. It will consistently shoot 1"-1 1/2" at 100 yards and under 2" at 150 yards with Winchester Power Points in 150 grain ammo. Rifle is in about 95% condition and I believe I got a bargin.

    Never used it except at the range but will this fall as NYS finally approved the use of centerfire rifles in several counties that border PA.

    This should be an excellent choice for a 15 years old or anyone else needing a deer rifle,

    $200 is a very good price in my opinion, a theft in my part of the country. It's a Marlin with cheaper clothes but a heart of gold. Get it. And welcome. DP

    That's a great price. But, sight unseen would bother me.

    $200.00 is a very good price and you will see it when you pay for it. If it's not as advertised don't take the money out of your pocket. If you are exoected to pay for it and then get it later, run like a bunny the other direction.
