Was at a little Gun show this weekend and picked this up, at least 95% looks to have had few rds through it. $700 bucks. IMG_8004.JPG IMG_8005.JPG IMG_8006.JPG

You stole that. It went for more than that brand new and I've seen plenty of those go for over a grand on gunbroker over the past few years.

Congrats on your find and score!

BTW, that is a JM stamped Marlin, right? Not a remlin :questionmark:

You did well...in fact you would found the holy grail of 1894 cowboys. Nice piece of lumber on that .44.

I don't mean to stick my nose where it doesn't belong, but the barrel stamp is for a 38/357.

I'd hold onto it ... but if you do decide to unload it, give the guys here on the MO first shot. Set your price and see what it goes for.

You got a heckuva deal. It's only going to go-up in value over the course of the coming years.

WOW dcsprings, GREAT find. Beautiful wood. Sometimes we get lucky at gun shows, but this is over the top! And a 24" 'er to boot. I have a 24" Cowboy LTD in 357, but NIB and I'm gonna keep it that way as long as I can control myself. I did find a 20" 'er at a gun show this winter but had to pay $950 bucks for it. (wanted one to shoot ;-) Maybe now I can keep the 24' 'er pristine.

I have one of them too and I can attest to the fact that it will become one of your favorite rifles. I might suggest you spend some shooting time with that CB and I think you will see why so many Marlin guys want one. I have really enjoyed all of my Marlins but my 1894C and my Cowboys are just plain fun.

That is a great rifle no matter what you pay for it. But you got a great deal by our local standards. Nothing like that around here would be available for less than $999.... I am confident at that estimate. The market has run wild- it's all about the JM stamp first, then the model, then the caliber. Your has all of that working in its favor- and then that fabulous wood.

Great score.

I'm jealous!

Again

dc, for that price I'd have to keep her. What are the odds of finding another one that nice, for that price? Beautiful rifle!!!

Keep it----shoot it for 10 years then put it on Gunbroker---it will still be worth twice what you paid for it by then. That's my plan and I'm sticking to it.
