The asking price is $335 with scope it in 90% cond. I don't want the scope I will tell them to knock it off. They allways come off there price just need to know what a 90 % marlin 1894 in 357mag in blue should go for. I was thinking it will make a nice pinker with some umc 38 +p's

I guess asking a question like this doesn't get a response. If it's not uber tactical around here no one has an answer. Since they're asking 335 with the scope why not offer 275 and see if they go for it. You can negotiate from there just have cash in your hand. I like the Marlin lever guns and was think of getting a 44 mag.

Cowboy model or standard 1894? Gunshop or individual?

I would go for .45LC myself, but .357 is not bad...

The price sounds fair...

Get thee a reloading press, as .357 is very cheap and easy to reload...

What brand of scope is on it? You could sell the rings and scope on E-bay for a few bucks...

$335 is a reasonable price for a standard 18.5 inch 1894C with decent glass. If it is an older microgroove version the price should be lower due to the perception that MG can't shoot lead (false, but a persistent urban legend). If it is a Cowboy model, that price is very good.

I'd pay that for a clean pre-safety gun no problem. It seems a little high for a safety gun though.

I would pay it. I bought mine new for $425

I would give my left nut for a decent Marlin 1894 in .357 ballard cut.....doing the nut to dollar conversion and factoring in the vasectomy....comes to about $350.....so you're looking at a good deal even for micro-groove.

roy d.....still carrying both the boys and no .357 carbine

You're in luck... Marlin is making brand new Ballard cut 1894C's as we type. You should be able to get one just about anywhere for $430 or less.
