    Going price for Marlin .444's?

    What's a good used .444, uncheckered with cross-bolt safety in 95% condition bringing these days?
    I saw one recently and am tempted.
    If it was a "pre-safety" I would have already jumped on it.
    If the price is right I think I can learn to live with the safety.
    Thanks!

    Going price for Marlin .444's?

    Which is more desirable, the 444S from '72-'83 or the newer 444SS models made from '84 on?

    Going price for Marlin .444's?

    There are 5 styles of 444 Marlins, the 444, the 444S,444SS. 444P and 444XTR.
    The first has a 24" Micro-Groove 1-38 twist barrel and straight grip, high comb buttstock (which is the best IMHO) square or round lever, narrow hammer, barrel bands at the forearm. They are the smoothest 444's out there and they have some of the better triggers and chambers. (My pick)



    The 444/444S (S Stands for sporter) has a 22" Micro-Groove 1-38 twist barrel, pistol grip buttstock, early models had the barrel band on the forearm and narrow hammers, latter ones had the thicker hammer and the new style forearm retainer,and they changed the lifter somewhere in there and they added checkering on the stocks.

    444SS (SS stands for sporter and crossbolt safety) 22" barrel, pistol grip buttstock, and crossbolt safety. Around 1999 they went from the Micro-Groove 1-38 twist to the Ballard 1-20 twist rifling.

    444P was the same as a 444SS but with a 18.5" ported barrel ballard 1-20 twist, I dont think they made any un-ported ones.

    444XLR is there newest offering, 24" barrel ballard 1-20 twist, Stainless Steel, laminated stocks, and a few extra goodies to handle the Lever Evolution ammo, it should have been called "Leverlution".

    As for price it all depends on where you live, it seems $300.00 and up is about right............................................. ...........................Marko
    Their are only two kinds of people, those who own a 444 and those who wish they owned one,
    and yes folks, denial is bliss!

    Going price for Marlin .444's?

    I got my 1972 444S for $350 through this forum. By the time I fixed a couple of things on it I could have bought a new one but I still like the deal because mine doesn't have the crossbolt safety.

    One thing to consider: if you need to replace the hammer on a 444 Marlin, parts for the older ones are a little hard to find. Marlin only stocks hammers for the crossbolt type. And there were two types of hammers for the older models. They are not interchangeable. I needed one and found it after lots of web surfing. Finally some whining on this forum paid off.

    All that aside, I love my 444S with Weaver K3 on top.

    Ditto what Dawei said here for in Central Oklahoma and that is waaaay too cheap. Folks do not understand the inherent accuracy of the .444 and that microgoove barrels shoot cast boolits wonderfully.

    Going price for Marlin .444's?

    I found another one today (late 80's early 90's) for $329.99.
    There's one on another forum that's a '88 model and he's asking $375 with a cheap scope.
    Both seem to be in line with what you guys are telling me.
    I may still hold out for one without the safety. Don't have any with safeties right now.
