    Marlin 1892 - 22 cal

    I have a Marlin 1892 in 22 cal. Ser# 254XXX. Mfg. 1895. All original with a Lyman 1 Combination Tang Peep Sight. Original good finish on the wood, no cracks no dents. Barrel good, 24 in. Metal has no rust, light patina color. Butt plate black with Marlin Safety, M.F.A. Co. on it. Action very smooth. Overall in very, very good condition. How desireable is this rifle, approx. value?

    They are very collectible, the value is hard to pin down without seeing. Try to post photos and some one will be able to help. How's the bore? Try looking on Gunbroker.com and see if there is one like yours in cond. and see what it sells for.

    Hope that helps

    cj57, Good idea.

    Gunbroker has one with out the Lyman tang sight, has poor wood. and a changed front sight - price $999.

    Cabelas has one almost exactly like mine in their old gun room - price $1150

    If you looked at the pictures and description on Cabelas they are exactly like mine.

    Good question, the BB shows a different date for that serial number.

    MARLIN FIREARMS COMPANY SERIALIZATION

    Approximate serialization for Marlin rifles from 1883 to 1906 including Models 1881, 1888,
    1889, 1891, 1892, 1893, 1894, and 1897. Marlin did not assign a specific block of Ser.
    No. to these models, rather the models being produced at that time were mixed. Using this
    list will place the year of manufacture plus or minus one year.

    Just for comparison. This dates to 1900. (Yours dates to 1902) This is about as nice as I have seen and I paid well under $1000 about 6-8 months ago.

    Re: Marlin 1892 - 22 cal

    Don't use Cabelas or Gunbroker asking prices as a guide to your gun's value. Cabelas is extremely high, and rarely sells at the asking price, even after months of posting. Gunbroker or any auction service lets the seller set whatever starting price they want, but rarely do these close with any bids when the price is too high.
    Best to check completed auctions to determine what they're really getting from guns sold.
