This clean 781 was auctioned off for $405 today on Gunbroker.

I know nothing is worth more than the market will bear. But lately these older Marlins are bringing some pretty fair change. The ones that have been taken care of at least.

I had the bid right under

I had the bid right under the winner, if I remember right I was $396. I was driving on the Pa turnpike and kept pulling over to see what was hapening and to place a new bid. I think if I was home on the laptop I would have bought the gun.

oldguy22 sir your not the only one who has done that...I went to buy a Grand Slam scope off of Ebay and was with my brothers fishing off the Oregon coast and there was no one bidding on it and I waited for the last 30 seconds and I lost signal...it would not go through...I was trying for the last 20 seconds and it never connected.

So when we got back to my younger brother house...I looked up RFC and found the same scope on sale from a member here in the classifieds that had just posted it for sale...and I bought it.

That was not the first time that happened...it happened to me driving too...it took three weeks for me to finally buy a scope on Ebay...once in the car...bid too early, second try at home with computer locked up and the last one I had two computers side by side ready to go and I finally got. But waiting for a sale to end being a week long every time...stinks.

Sometimes things just aren't meant to be, sometimes they are.

But it sure is nice when everything falls into place and your plans work out just the way you want....

In my area, a 90% gun is lucky to fetch $250, a NIB 781 at my LGS went for $350 in the spring.

Meanwhile at a pawn shop near me, they're trying to sell a pretty worn 783 for $359.99. Needless to say, it's been sitting there at least six months.

Gripen sir let it sit there...gun shops don't make any money if they don't sell any thing. It was not half that price when it was brand new.

200 is the highest I've had to pay for good condition Marlin bolts around here. Model 39s are a whole different ball game.

online pricves are high, for me at least

I just bought another gun, i'll post photos soon. Small town gun shops and at shows maybe you can a real buy. But online sales, esp GB, if they are old, all original, and clean, they garner the attention of real Marlin lovers, like us. The magic words for large money if it is....whiteline--bullseye--gold trigger--tube fed!!!
