That might be a hard one to find at a bargain price. Even old beat up Marlin's are getting pretty good prices.... 30-30's. The JM 45-70's are getting pretty scarce. I purchased 2 (GS, SS) in the last couple of years and paid 550 and 560 for them respectively 2 years ago. The GS (550) came with 2 boxes of Buffalo Bore 500 gr. ammo so I got a great deal on it. Only 2 rounds were missing from the ammo and he bought the rifle new w/ the ammo. The second one is an SS model that was in excellent condition.

The guy was a bush pilot in Alaska. He kept it in his plane in case he was forced to land in a remote location and had it for personal protection. He was retiring and moving to Hawaii, so decided to sell it. I keep this rifle in Alaska and also use it for protection in the bush. You are correct. Many people buy these rifles and get way more bullet than they need. Personally, I shoot 350 grain bullets in my SS for hogs and deer. The GS is literally loaded for bear. Big bear. lol I added a skinner ghost ring sight to it and it is zeroed for 50 yards. When I stop traveling to Alaska I'll ship it home. For now I keep it there as a matter of convenience.
