I know some of you would say no because you have no need for a moose gun. This question is for lever action guys.

2/22/16- she's mine.

Yes I have a Marlin .450 guide gun and wouldn't sell it for less than that.

Yes.

I have no desire for own a 45-70, but that's not an easy gun to find and would be very tempted just to play with it for a little bit

Excellent condition? Yes.
They seem to go for $700-800 around here.

Without hesitation.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 1:21:50 PM EST
Probably. I've always liked the caliber.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 1:22:22 PM EST
No.

I paid 650 for mine about 9 years ago Love that rifle. 24" xlr stainless love it. DO IT NOW.

Absolutely yes!
I have seen the stainless/laminated guide gun version sell for over 1k & the value will only go up in the future.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 1:25:19 PM EST
Thanks for the feedback folks. I am waiting to hear back on a Westernfield .30-30, but will jump this if that falls through.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 1:25:51 PM EST
Do it.

I added a scope to mine with QR mount to sling the 405gr hardcast at 2,000 fps and get 200+ yd ballistics. Definite elk medicine.

It will wake you up.

I've got a JM guide gun that has less than 40 rounds through it. I paid around 400 to 450? new if I remember correctly. Interesting to see the appreciation in value.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 1:27:35 PM EST
I paid over $700 for mine and now I want the stainless one to go with it. One of my favorite guns!
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 1:33:10 PM EST
I can tell you that 40 grains of imr 4198 powder under a 340 grn hard cast bullet is a damn fine round, It will drop pretty much anything that walks crawls or slithers.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 1:35:24 PM EST
No but only because I paid 250 for my 1889 Marlin.

Beaters are now $500-550 here. Just a few years ago $425-475 or so for excellent. Makes me wish I'd bought the like new .450 guide and ammo for $425 from a lgs and the $360 39A....sigh...
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 2:15:21 PM EST
sure
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 2:17:05 PM EST
Look what JMs are going for on gunbroker. That should help.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 2:31:19 PM EST
I bought a brand new stainless Marlin 45/70 six or seven years ago. Outside of the maybe 20 rounds I've shot through it, she has lived in the safe the entire time.

Just a few months back a guy wanted to buy it but never did pony up the cash. I figure I will hold onto it and maybe sell it later on down the road.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 3:02:05 PM EST
If it didn't have the safety
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 3:11:18 PM EST
Ni.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:02:40 PM EST
Think i paid $850 for mine.
Brand new.

I paid around that for a one in great condition with a vx-ii and a few goodiesa few years ago. I too am surprised the prices have gone up as much as they have.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:10:17 PM EST
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:13:03 PM EST
Yup, sure would. I would jump on it
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:15:29 PM EST
That seems to be a very reasonable price for a JM stamped guide gun. If you want one I'd grab it.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:17:58 PM EST
Yep yep
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:19:05 PM EST
Nope. Already got one.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:20:36 PM EST
I sold a Marlin 444 for $500 with a crappy scope 10yrs ago and a Marlin carbine in 357 last year for $700 so it's a really odd market.
My shortened large ring custom 44carbine would have to bring me $1,100 to break even.
I recently sold all the 30-30 ammo I had due to an obvious Marlin weakness...

I already have one and I'd jump on that.

I can tell you this, op. If your lgs has a mint used one for $469, and you say" let me wait till next weekend" , you will kick yourself for a very long time.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:35:35 PM EST
I have no need for a lot of things I have so yes I'd have no problem paying that price for one.
Link Posted: 2/21/2016 4:43:16 PM EST
Paid 550$ for mine and was thinking of restocking it with this blank.
Really happy with it pre Remington.

Maybe, but I already have one just like it....

ETA: Nice!!!


Link Posted: 2/22/2016 10:38:59 AM EST
I would.

When I was in Alaska last year .45-70 Marlins seemed to be very popular.

I may end up hanging it on a wall. I just dated the serial number, and it's a prewar 1941.

Nevermind, looks like Marlin decided to use older serial number codes on 1895s in the 70s.

You have the gift of foresight.

When Moose overrun Florida who will be prepared?

OP, that's who.

Florida Moose would be 4 feet tall, just like our deer.

Nice gun. I've got a cb version with the octogon barrel. They ate a blast to shoot.
Link Posted: 2/22/2016 12:20:32 PM EST
I have a straight grip like yours and it's for my outdoor walks. We've one big kitty as well as some big black bears out here. Thankfully the bears are shy (and hope they stay that way) and I've only seen kitty once. BTW, thee's a bald eage alround here and a pair of red too. I love watching the latter as they fly quite close by.
Link Posted: 2/22/2016 12:21:51 PM EST
Awesome! Mine is one of my favorites. I think you should shoot it.
