    Value of Marlin 1894 CBC in 38 special

    Picked up a beautiful Marlin 1894 Cowboy Competition rifle chambered in 38 Special. Can anyone tell me the value of this rifle in easily 99 percent condition? This is a blue rifle with the case hardened action and the lever and trigger are very smooth to operate. The octagon barrel does have a small JM stamp on it but they probably all do. Thanx.

    Welcome to MO

    Our first and second rules are that you must post pictures.

    The Cowboy Competition is a rare model and could fetch $1200 or more these days.

    How much did you pay? (That's our third rule )

    Those in .38 are bringing top bucks.....upwards to 1000 to 1200.

    Those in .45 Colt can still be found in the 700-800 range, but those prices are rare.

    I have 38 Spl. mint in box for $1000 listed on GA. I have had 2 replies but nothing solid so I would say it is listed at the top of value. It has nice grained wood in the buttstock, but forearm is rather plain.

    Not long ago I sold my CSS and don't miss it a bit. Now my CBC, that would break my heart to part with. I had it out at the range just a couple days ago and could not seem to put it down. 230 rounds later and a setting sun and I finally had to pack it up. So what's it worth? Priceless.

    We have a new couple shooting cowboy action in my local club; the husband had a Marlin '94 in .45 Colt but his wife wanted a .38. They ended up finding a like new .38 CBC in November and bought it for $800. Based on what Marlins were going for a couple of years ago I thought that was on the high end but after watching a couple of auctions I realized they had gotten a deal.
