For the best rifle at a great price I would say here also. Unless it is local and you have a public meeting place I would not use Armslist. Gunbroker has worked for me but you need to remember to add the shipping and transfer into the price when you are deciding how high to go. Look under the forums and check under the Marlin rifles for sale and you may find one you like.

I like the guys here. Then theres GB & Auction Arms.com, have gotten a couple good deals. Just ask questions and if need be ask for more pics. If they aren't willing to send more pics. or want to answer questions pass. Good luck.

Thanks for all the helpful responses.

I'm looking for a JM stamped 336 35 Rem in excellent condition.

There has been a few nice ones in the recent months on here. Just keep your eye on the "Marlin Only" forum.

My first and second choices would be here.......and here. My only online experience has actually been Bud's for new only. I've bought two here and been much more comfortable with the situation more quickly than elsewhere. Where else can you study the seller without paying for a background check?

I thought T-Roy had one for sale today....maybe it sold. But a 35Rem has been coming up for sale here almost weekly.

He had one up for trade but T-Roy is not inflexible when you talk his language. It's worth a try.

I've bought three rifles from members here (336 in 30-30, 39, 1895 Cowboy)! Good guys to deal with. I don't think the 25 posts requirement applies to buying, but only to listing stuff for sale. If I'm off on that, would a mod please fix this statement! John

I know your question was about buying online, and I agree that this is the best place to do it. You will get an honest deal and a well cared for Marlin. I will say though that in my neck of the woods pawn shops and consignment racks in gun shops are my preference. You can hold it in your hands...plus I generally find pretty good deals. But you have to live somewhere where Marlin 35s are popular. Guess I'm just fortunate:)

I had a WAY weird experience with Armslist - not the site, but a seller.

He would not meet at a public place (I suggested a half-way WalMart parking lot). He got really odd about it. I ended my interest quickly.

The times I bought rifles from people I didn't know, we met at a large Convenience store/Fuel stop that are big in PA. I would only meet people in broad daylight, and told him to park in front of the store, close to the front door. I doubt that a crook would try to stick me up under that circumstance.

If someone won't send additional pictures and/or refuses to meet you in a public place, don't go.


Cheers!
