Does anyone know what years Marlin produced the Ducks Unlimited 25mn in stainless steel? I am really wanting to know if it was still a Marlin before Remington took over. I saw one NIB and was wondering what they are worth or go for? Any information would be greatly appreciated as this looks like quite an attractive rifle.
I THINK they only ran 2 years on the 25. I will have to check. They swapped out every year with something different. I've seen a Remington 870, Marlin 1894, 39 and of course the 60 which I have. If yours is a stainless then it should have the laminate stock. I passed one up last year. As far as price, nothing really special about them except the coin. So normal price is fair unless you find someone that has to have it because it says Ducks Unlimited and pays whatever just to have it.

Thanks hemi. I await your research. It is online. I don't really care about the coin. I just like the stainless steel and wood together. I just don't know how much I covet it yet. This past weekend I went to a large gun show. Some people had not new regular plain jane (not checkered stock or SS) for $300.00 and $325.00. They seemed steep for me. As I see it, anything bought off the interent sites want $25 to ship, then the FFL charges his/her fee generally $25-30 plus $5.00 background check and tax. Last time I did this (got my 1894SS) off one of the auction sites and it cost me just as I described. So that adds a lot to the total price. Maybe someone on here has one in the Jacksonville, Florida area where we could do a face to face.
The serial number begins with 033xxx so does that mean it was manufactured in 1997? That would mean a Marlin thru and thru!!!
Yep 1997. Very nice!!!
