Personally I would never buy one until they get their quality control in order. But if its been shot I would say 300.

OK probably enough said "quality control". Thought I had heard there was some problems. Think I'll pass on it and wait for a nice older model like I've been looking for.

Would not touch it unless you could get it for cheap; way cheap.

One advantage of buying used is that you can check it out really well before buying. They sell for $387 here at Walmart, but they have a trigger lock installed and they won't let you cycle the action. Other than checking the wood to metal fit and if the sights are installed straight, buying a new one is a gamble. $300 really doesn't sound too bad if the gun checks out, you could offer less and see if he takes it.

I won't buy a new Marlin until the current supply of JM Marlins run dry. Could be a while...
