    Are Marlin 1895 Cowboys, .45-70 still in demand?

    I don't see them advertised much anymore for sale. Maybe folks gave up looking for them?

    I know that folks in our CAS club keep their eyes open for them. They are getting more scarce and the prices are spiraling up. Soon they will be at the same price as the Uberti rifle cartridge long guns and only a few will be able to afford them.

    You are pulling our Legs right?

    They are not advertized new since they became Remlins and could not produce new ones. The Original Marlin Cowboy's made by Marlin JM are in High Demand.

    I suspect some are being turned off by the high prices asked for some of the marlin guns. I never even dreamed that marlins would demand the money some are askin. always thought of Marlins as A working mans gun.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. . . . .

    I have an 1895CB that's never been fired. (JM proofmark. 2001 or 2002 serial number. I'd have to look, to be sure.)

    I'm just curious - what are these astronomical prices that people are trying to get (Seriously, I have no idea what it's worth!)

    You must have this confused with Rossi. Last MSRP on 1895 Cowboys was $815.00, and on Gunbroker, very rare to see one sell for less than $900.00.

    I think working men want quality...Some have gone over $1,400.00. I don't know what the ceiling is, I was surprised that the 336 Cowboys in 30-30 go for over 1,200.00 on Gunbroker. I know they are more rare.

    My friend has a CB in 45-70 that he's never really warmed up to. He bought it used, and it was very slightly used at that. He's never even shot it! He'd probably sell it.
