    1897 cb

    I saw a 1897 CB the other day for sell. Price was $1600.00. 99 % new old stock. Is that crazy and/or they that rare? I have a 336CB,1894CB,1895CB.WHY did I have to SEE this rifle? 1600 for a 22 rifle!

    Well used ones can go 800-1200. Condition is everything.

    For what its worth. About 4 months ago I paid just north of 1K for mine in excellent condition, but no box or papers.

    Welcome from Idaho!
    Sometimes, you can find a nice Model 39 (octagon barrel) for under $1K! They are shooters & no cross bolt safety w/rebounding hammer & often still have some nice case color .

    I've never given any of the new 1897's any thought. The rebounding hammer, safety, and extra holes in the receiver turn me off. Love the octagon barrel but that's not enough for me to over look the other things. Just my personal preferences.

    That and I'm too cheap to pay that kinda money for that gun. NIB 39M Octagon...Maybe.

    Yup! I have 4. $900 was the most expensive one and that was a 39M Octagon. NIB 39 CL for $800. Last one is a 39 CL...$300

    STILL looking at that 1897! It’s calling my name. DO I really need all of my Marlin levers to match? Does this mean that I am now a “ collector”? I have a nice 39A pistol grip that serves me fine. What’s next? A short barreled 1895CBA to go with my 26” barreled 1895 CB? Sounds limeI may need an intervention!

    Someone told me you become a collector when you start purchasing firearms that don't fill a practical need. When I grew up, you really couldn't hunt with anything but a .22 and a shotgun. You could take anything available with them, and I did. That being the proven case, no one really needs one of those "high powered rifles" in Indiana.

    And in reality, I suppose no one needs to hunt any more for food. They've made the investment greater than the return. You can trap vermin.

    And so, I am a collector. I enjoy it, and I will continue to do so for no other necessity than shear pleasure of the art. And until the definition of necessity changes.

    What a great country we live in. Collect and enjoy.
