I picked up a Marlin Glenfield 30 A last weekend at the Ohio Gun Collectors show. It appears as brand new; not a mark on it. Made in the early 70s with stained hardwood stock and pressed checkering, cut rifling (not Microgroove) and no cross bolt safety. Oh, and it has a Marlin 4 x 32 scope. Was $275 a good deal? I didn't see anything directly comparable like a 336 W, just walnut stocked, mostly microgroove rifles in the $350 range. None as clean as this one.

I think you got a great deal. I have a 1978 Glenfield and I would not sell it for $300. Lets see some pictures.

Sounds like a big score to me! Anytime you get it for less money the better. It will really make you smile when you shoot it, too. Just wait!

That's an excellent deal.

Two years ago, I bought a 30A in good shape for $260 with no scope. Your original marlin scope is worth a few bucks, because it adds to the All Original character of the item.

Also, prices have gone up quite a bit since I bought mine.

$275 is a steal for any Marlin/Glenfield that is not a rust-bucket in my part of the world. Your Glenfield does have a micro-groove barrel, all of them from that era do. Welcome to Marlin Owners! DP

Sorry about no pictures. I don't have the rifle anymore. When I bought it I had a buddy in mind. He likes shooting my Marlin 36W so much that he's been looking for one for quite a while. I figured if he didn't want it I'd flip it for a profit or keep it and sell my 36W. When I described it to him he couldn't get over here with the money fast enough. He was afraid I would change my mind. I sold it to him for what I paid for it and he bought lunch. Fair deal. The good news is I will be able to see and shoot it as we go to the range together quite a bit. I also have first dibs if he ever decides to sell it.

That was a very good thing you did for your buddy Mike.Not all Marlin owners can bear to part with a rifle once they get their grimy little paws on it......me included.
