"bo" 1895

Okay, I'll bite, what exactly are we talking about here? What's a "bo"??
Hey Mazer,

That would be the 1972 "reintroduction" of the 1895.

Happen to have one, that I purchased new (at the hardware store) in '75.:biggrin:

Later, Mark

This afternoon I stopped at a local pawn shop; they had 3 Marlins on the rack; two were 336's and one was an 1895 with "23" prefix (which makes it a 1977 model). It has a long barrel (probably 22") and smooth stocks, no safety and micro-groove rifling. The rifle is easily 95%. The bore was pretty dirty so I suggested letting me return with some cleaning supplies and clean the bore so I could get a better look. I did about any hour latter; the bore was pristine. They had $500 on it so I offered $500 out the door (ie they pay the sales tax) which they agreed to effectively making the price of the rifle about $472. I'm about to go out of town but when I get back I'll post some pics. I'm very pleased with my purchase and think I got an 1895 in super condition at a pretty good price.

Prices have been going up on all JM Marlins. I've been noticing higher prices across the board on all JM Marlins with the except of some 30-30's which are as common as dirt. Some 45-70's in pristine condition have an asking price of $800.00. 45-70's that are less than pristine still have asking prices of $700 or $750. Anytime you run into one below $600 buy it, even if you already have one. Rumor has it no one is making JM Marlins anymore.




Cheers!
