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! Military camouflage Camouflage Material property Pattern

See the price now, thanks.
Please do not let the list price be a determining factor in making an offer. I have no idea what the value of this rifle is, and I originally listed it without a price. I was instructed to add a price, or delete the listing. I think the only way to determine an accurate price is for the new owner to determine what the real value of this unique rifle is to him, as an extremely rare addition to add to/complete a collection. The number I listed is completely arbitrary to me. Thank you!

Your listed price definitely scared me off. You bought the rifle at a pawn shop correct? If so then you should have a general idea how much it's worth. Most pawn shops I know have multiple books to help them determine the value of a gun so I doubt what you paid for it is far off what somebody else might be willing to pay. I think you have to figure out how rare it really is and how much of a demand there is out there for it and then how much money you want to make off of selling it to members of MO. If you really want to find out what it will bring list it on GunBroker with a reserve and see what happens!
No, I bought it at a gun show. The c30as was not/is not listed in any Marlin catalogs, Blue Books, etc. After reading the posts about this particular rifle in the "336" section, there is very little known about it. There are very, very few seen, and none in NIB condition. So it's kinda hard to put a price tag on something like that- that's why I'm asking for offers. If I put it on GB, then I have to take it off of this site, correct? I don't think it's possible to negotiate trades on GB, so that's why I'm listing here, a site made for folks who are Marlin experts who could appreciate a rifle like this. Hope this helps explain my rational, and feel free to make an offer. Thanks!
