I am trying to find out what two limited edition Marlin .22 caliber, bolt action rifles are worth:

- Marlin Biathon rifle, Lyman front and rear aperture sights, 8 shot magazine, medium oak laminated stock. These have many characteristics of the model 880 but have a better trigger. Marlin made only 100 of these in an attempt to enter the youth summer Biathon market. These are not listed in The Blue Book of Gun Values.

- Limited Edition of the Marlin 2000. VERY FEW of these were made and production ended in 1994. One model has a medium oak Laminated stock with no "Limited Edition " stock badge. Another model has a Gray laminated stock with a "Limited Edition " badge on the right side of the butt stock. Both have the heavy barrel, adjustable trigger, aperture sights etc. of the traditional blue stock Marlin 2000.

These are not listed in The Blue Book Of Gun Values.

All of the rifles that are in my possession are in "new, unfired" condition.

I called Marlin ( sic. Remington), but all the veteran Marlin employees were no longer employed there and the Remington customer service person didn't have any idea as to their value or original retail price.

Anyone have data as to their value?

I have had two 881's and they are worth every penny accuracy wise. I would pay twice what its worth. JMHO
