    need advice on a 444 thats for sale

    a local guy here has a 444 for sale, its been 2 weeks and he start to bring his price down. how much would you pay for it ?

    Up for sale is an excellent condition Marlin lever action rifle in the hard hitting, big bore .444 Marlin caliber. This gun is rarely seen in this configuration. It has a straight grip walnut stock, with monte carlo comb, 24" rifle length barrel, and squared off "Texan" style lever. No hammer block safety, iron sights with folding leaf rear... the gun oozes quality. .444 Marlin is good for any North American game out to 200 yards. Rifle hits hard, and carries easily...would make a statement in any deer, elk or larger game camp. Included in the sale is 1 box of factory Remington ammo, 20 pieces of once fired brass (in case you should be a reloader...I'm not), and a very nice leather sling. This gun has had very few rounds fired through it in it's entire existence. I am asking $525.00 obo for this rifle and extras. Thanks!

    That is a very beautiful rifle. I think that is a reasonable price for a classic 444 that looks as good as that does. If I were in your shoes, I would buy it!

    I would pay $450 without question - $500 is a very fair price with the extras! (that is the first model 444, made from 1965-71)

    Sure is pretty, that is a classic for sure. Only you can control your impulse. With the current market it won't be long before that price will be the norm of that type of Marlin. Sure is pretty, that is a classic for sure.
    Good luck.

    A very nice rifle. I would have no problem meeting his price. I'd start at $475 just out of general principle but I'd take it home! Good luck!

    As has already been said, the seller is asking a reasonable price and if I could come up with the $525.00, I'd be trying to get the seller's name from you.

    I have one of those built in '69. I love it, and mine was pretty abused. I had to spend money to get it back to fighting condition. Like these guys were saying... Good price on a classic that they don't make anymore. Buy it!

    I was at a gun show yesterday I didn't see any 444 or even a any 1895 Marlins but a lot of 336 in 30 30 and 35 Rem. I didn't see one less than $530. no matter of condition but all clean used condition rifles. but $525. is probably the max. I would pay and only because it a straight stock and they're not being made at this time. If you want it offer him $450 to $475 and maybe you'll get it for $500 out the door. If I bought a 336-35Rem at the show I might have paid tax at 8.75% so a rifle at $530 + 8.75% ($46.38= $576.38 . So if you believe this rifle is a good working rifle for $500. take it and don't look back. Personally I would look for a 1999 made or later 444 just because of the rifling twist 1 in 20". Though I have a 1972 made 444 and I'm satisfied with the old 1 in 38" twist the 1 in 20" twist would handle heavier bullets and Leverevolution cartridges better.
