It's in really nice condition with walnut of course and the bullseye is there. Gun hasn't been molested in any way and would make some nice gun porn. What I'm asking myself is "do I really need to add a 35 to my collection" of 3 Marlin's. Since it has no checkering and 35 ammo is getting harder to get and no amenities is it worth collecting. Should I hold out for a older pre safety model.
Why not hold out, tons of pre safety 35s out there for sale. Not that I'm advocating on line auctions per say, seems to be almost more used 35 than 30-30 for sale, and often go at very good prices. The ammo situation could explain it. But ammo is around if you keep your nose to the ground.
If it were me if it was more than $350 or so Id hold out for a pre-safety gun. As far as the ammo goes im sure we will see it come available closer to the fall hunting seasons. most of the manufactures have suspended or are running occasional small runs of the less popular hunting calibers and are concentrating on more popular ones like 223 and pistol rounds to meet demand but they will-even If only In smaller runs-produce the hunting caliber rounds before fall.
