info for a 881



Log in to see fewer ads
Picked up a Marlin 881 today and think that I got a pretty fair deal on it.
I am having trouble finding any info for it.
Can anybody provide any info?

ie. how to determine year manufactured?
approx. value in good condition?

Thanks in advance.

Like the 981 but without the new trigger set up.

Year will be by serial number prefix.

"Good" value, 80 bucks buying, 120 selling.

K-Swift, You are very swift at replying, thanks.
You must also be a mind reader, I picked it up for 80.00.
Shows minor wear on the bolt, aside from that in excellent condition.

I bought mine at a pawn shop 2 years ago. The condition was superb and it looks like my 981T which has a walnut stock. The 981T has a RB trigger, so it gets more use.

The 881 is a fine rifle, but has a heavy trigger. Rifle Basix has a solution, but it will cost you about 100 bucks.

Hi Marlin Fan
Subtract the first to numbers of your serial # from 100 to get the year of manufacture, generally.
There is a sticky on improving the trigger of bolt action Marlins and it works pretty good, especially on the older models.
Marlin owners, even those who own the same model like to see pictures, so get them up as well as range results.
