    what is my 444 worth????

    I have a Marlin 444 100yr anniversary model (1870-1970). I want to sale or trade so I can get my son a 44mag lever rifle. It is a hunting gun and has a fair amount of wear on the wood but the metal is in really good shape (been well taken care of). Can I trade for a 44mag or whats the thing worth in cash?

    Hard to say, put up some pics and I'm sure you'll get a feel for a price range. Try looking on GunBroker or Auction Arms, Gunsamerica? Mr fixit

    I'd say the average price on standard 444's is about $400. That's what I paid for mine, and seems like that buys alot of the rifles. If it's other than a 444S or 444SS like yours it might get more.

    The 44 mag tends to sell for about $50 to $100 more around here, again average.

    Of course, both depend on condition, and location.

    This is a very good idea! My wife is recoil sensitive and the 444 is way to much for her.
    But 10-11 grains of trail boss powder behind a 240grn pistol bullet runs at 44 Mag speeds and is safe and very accurate.
    Please verify any load data you read on the net!

    Good luck.

    OK i will give you $100 for a quick sale other wise I suppose someone else should give you $400+. If you don't get the $400 than keep it and load down for your kid, I will never consider selling my "Triple 4", Good luck

    I shot .44 cast bullets behind 13gr of Trailboss. Also 265gr FN behind 11.7 and 15.7 of Trailboss. Used these on gophers and papers though, never Deer size game.

    Roan444,
    Your note is of interest to me. I have a 1988 444SS and it shoots very well and I will be keeping it for a long time to say the least.
    Your note indicates that the 444S and the 444SS models are "discounted" in some manner. I would like to know why? Perhaps you could share with me and others about this "discount" issue. Thank you in advance for your enlightenment!

    I meant just the opposite of what you're thinking,(I think) Think of it this way, the 444S and 444SS are the standard model, and more of them were made than some of the other Models.

    The first run of 444 ('68 to '72) were made with straight (monte carlo) stock, and 24" barrels I think. Because these were early runs, and have a different configuration, to some they are worth MORE than the standard 444S and SS.

    Then there's also the Outfitter, or 444P. These were short barreled, straight stock "guide gun" type configurations, again worth more to some folks because they're different than the S and SS.

    Buckduster's gun is of the straight stock early run, AND commemorative, so there might be some out there that'd be willing to give slightly more for it than an S or SS.

    The base value starts with the standard model (S and SS) and goes up (again for some) for the ones that are "different" in some way. I was looking for a '72 model for a while, and would have been willing to give slightly more for it, than an S or SS in similar condition, because that's what I WANTED.

    Hope this is making sense, and my musings are close to accurate?
