My brother has a 1980 model that he bought from a woman who's husband had bought it new. It's in almost pristine shape, came with a sling, scope and soft case and he got it for $250. But that's a deal most folks won't come across. If it needs refinished, I would think $250 would be better, but in the grand scheme of things, what's another $50. If you want it, get it.

Around me that is a good price. Don't know where you live, but Marlins/Glenfields seem to bring more around here. I have been trying to get a Glenfield 30A with a short mag tube that is setting in a pawn shop for $300, covered with surface rust, 40% of the finish is gone, and he will only drop $25. :mad: Has Marlin's in better shape with end caps and full length tubes priced for less. ??? Keeps telling me it's rare. All depends on what you are comfortable paying, I bought the first 35 Rem I saw in several years at a gun show, paid more than others would have, but it was what I wanted and worth it to me. I say go for it at 250, if they say no, offer more. DP
The Glenfields with the short mag tubes are 30's not 30A's. I bought one a while back that had a pretty badly beat stock for $260. I redid the stock with bed liner, christened it Darth Vader, then sold it.
