    Marlin Commemorative/Centennial Models ?

    Are the 1870-1970 Centennial Models any more or less desirable/collectable than other models ? Are there any manufacturing/design differences from standard models other than the centennial designation ?

    Maybe, to a collector, if you had one that was new in the box, it might be more valuable.

    Mechanically, a comemmorative is the same as a regular gun.

    Sometimes you can find one that has not been fired or has not been fired much, and if you can get it for a good price, buy it. But, don't pay more just because it has the medallion in the stock. They don't work or shoot any better.
    I have more guns than I need, but not as many as I want.

    The centennial models have the number 70 prior to the serial number on the tang.

    I bought one recently, unfortunate that the stock had some cracks in it and a small piece missing. I did however get a $100 discount on the price asked because of that. Sold the stock and fore end to a MO member, to help pay for the replacements. No centennial stocks available but did manage to score a nice semi crescent and fore end with deluxe checkering new, that burned up the discount ect and I now have the asking amount in the gun with new wood.

    The actions are no different other than the 70 stamped on them.
    Do some reading in our reference library.

    Swaney-
    Did you manage to salvage the 1870-1970 medallion from the stock?
    I just succumbed to Marlinitis again. A 1970 336 in 30/30. Missing the
    medallion. It is the twin for my 1970 336 in .35 Remington.

    lonestarmedic, If Swaney doesn't have a medallion I may have one. I'm out of town when I get home I'll check. I think I got one.

    When I sold the wood the medallion went with it.

    This is why Marlin Owners is one big happy family of Marlinitus inflicted Marlimaniacs I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

    I had thought of installing the old coin into the new stock but figured I'd mess something up so it went with the old stock.

    I had also thought of finding a 1870 nickle and install that. Then I have enough nickles in it now.

    I have found two forum styles that show this kind of comraderie. Firearms
    and motorcycles. I cannot thank you folks enough for the coin. I will send
    a PM and my info. It will round out my 2 gun set.
