    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.

    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.
