I have a Marlin 39 Century Ltd 1870-1970 octagon bbl in as near to mint condition as I could imagine, with the box (although it's not in the greatest shape, slightly torn flaps) and all the original paperwork. I would like to get an idea what the sale value of it would be. Hard time cause me to have to sell it at this time, but I have no idea what it's worth.
NIB Century Ltd.s seem to be bringing somewhere in the $500 - $600 range.
Some sellers are asking more on the auction sights, but those ones do not seem to sell.
Here's a good current examlpe :
MARLIN - The Gun For The Man Who Knows"
If you're still not sure what to ask on your Marlin, these price points may help:
Close friend (let you borrow it back any time)= $450
Neighbor's kid= $475
Adult Neighbor (NRA member)= $500
Adult Neighbor (non-NRA member)= $525
Average guy at work= $550
Weird brother-in-law $600
