OK- thanks for being patient for all who PM'd me from my thread in the "336" section of the forum, I'm listing it! Up for grabs is the Marlin C30as, with "Realtree" FACTORY CAMO finish. This rifle is new in the box, unfired,and unaltered. It comes with the trigger spur, manual, and the original box, serialized to the rifle. There has been a lot of discussion as to whether this model was a factory special order, or a very, very limited, uncataloged offering. Either way, most collectors and Marlin buffs haven't seen a photo of one, let alone hold one. The rifle is easily 99%, I see no apparent dents or dings. I see no rust, and appears unfired. The FFL Dealer I purchased it from stated it was brand new and unfired, as well. I would rate the rifle's box as "good" condition at best, as the hinge portion is well used, and has tears, tape, etc. on the box. The original factory label is still attached, but the right hand portion is coming off. I will send as many photos as you would like, and give as thorough description as I possibly can. I have no problems discussing the rifle over the phone, if you wish. I really have no idea as to the value of this rare piece, as I have never seen one for sale, especially unfired & new in box. I am open to offers, both cash and trade, or combination. I am required to have a "Buy it now" price, so I will list the rifle at $1500 to fulfill forum requirements, but, again, I'm open to offers/trades or combination. I enjoy rifles and pistols, and gravitate towards "New in Box" or "Like New in Box". I have been looking for a "JM" Marlin .357, .41, Mountie, S&W Model 17, and enjoy other vintage Marlins, Winchesters, S&W's, Colts, Garands and M1 Carbines. I don't collect commemoratives. The rifle will be sold "as is" (as would your trade, if applicable). Please "PM" me with any questions or offers. Thanks!
