    thinking over selling my 444

    It's time to start thinning the herd. I got this 444 to hunt black bears over bait. Colorado outlawed baiting years ago. It's a pre-safety model. Stock shows some marks. Bore is clean. I can post serial # if that helps. It has a Weaver scope mount. I've got about 4 or 5 boxes of ammo. Several are the old 265 Hornady. Anyone got a fair price. Not looking to get rich but I don't want to give it away either. Thx Bob

    Bob, I'm pretty familiar with Marlin 444 but, without good pics, serial number or date of manufacture and your location, I can't begin to guess its value.

    Without seeing it, all I can tell you is what I paid for mine last year. $650 OTD for a 1972 444S in pristine condition. Hope this helps.

    I would look at closed Gun Broker auctions and also check with your area LGS's to get an idea of its value. You can list it for sale here on MO under the Trading Post Forum but check on the selling rules before posting an ad. It MUST be advertised there and there alone--not anywhere else on this site.

    I agree. The 444 is Sweet! Every responsible gun owner should have a least one.

    I'm home now. It's a 444S with a micro groove barrel. JM stamp on barrel. It's missing the bullseye. Where is the serial number?

    I'm in Durango, Colorado.

    It's between 1972 and 1983. Serial number on top tang or under the lever on the lower tang.

    Marlin 444 Sporter
    Dates: 1972 — 1983
    Serial Numbers, first two digits: 72 (1972 only) 27 descending through 17 (1973 - 1983)
    Barrel Length: 22”
    Barrel Rifling: Micro-Groove™, 12 lands
    Barrel Twist: 1:38"
    Proof Mark: "JM" on left side of the barrel
    Notes:
    1976: Forearm cap replaces barrel band.
    1978: Honed chamber, I’m not sure of the significance of this.

    Pics would be nice. Speaking of Durango, I'll be in Paonia in about a month.
