Last week I went in a gun&pawn and found a 1894c 357 mag. it was the older model with out the block safety, the beaded front sight and small hammer spur serial #18029xxx in great condition, for $450 out the door, I asked the on the 1894 board they said it was a good buy, so I got it. Today I went in another gun&pawn, they had a 336 LTS looked liked to be 16" barrel with hammer block safety, in 30-30 but it looked just like the 1894c only it was a 336 beaded front sight plain walnut no checking, in good condition. Well this guy wanted $450 + tax. What do you think?

I believe the LTS was only made for 2 years '88 & '89 and has a 16.25" barrel. They were only chambered in .30-30

Depending on condition and what you consider good, it's probably worth the asking price but I'd start the dickering lower and go from there.

Good luck!

I've got an LTS. It's a real sweet shooter. Basicly it's a Marauder with a safety. You couldn't touch mine for $450.00.

last one I saw, friend got at a show in my hometown, he paid $500 after a negotiation, and he thinks he did great......
from what I've seen sell around here on run of the mills, I'd have to consider it.
Offer him the $450 OTD?

How much would the LTS be worth today? I'm looking at one in a small town pawn shop, but I think it's pretty high priced I believe around $700.00
I know this is an old post, found it via search...thanks in advance for any help with this.

An LTS is not a Marauder. The only thing similar is the barrel length. The Marauder's front barrel band is unique.

This post is 5 years old. But in responce to 19leben, I would say $700 for a LTS in 2015 is probably pretty good. The LTS was a short run gun and was made only a couple years. LTS stands for Little Texan Safety. In the last 2 years on this board, there has been 1 LTS for sale. Cant for the life of me remember what it went for. If its in good shape and the blueing is nice, I would highly consider the LTS. They just dont come up for sale often. You may never see another one in your life time. Just sayin.
