What Starrbow, Brocky, and Flat Top said. I own a 444ss and a 444XLR. Back to original question its worth whatever someone else is willing to pay for a fine rifle that they don't make anymore. The 45-70,s are everywhere but not the 444 Marlin. I was kind of thinking of selling one but then I thought I should have one MG and one Ballard rifled.
