25 MNG Garden Gun

I just checked the Blue Book on this one and they suggest $195 for a 98 percent condition gun, though you probably already know that. It's an unusual model and to the right collector maybe worth a lot more. Good luck.

These are quite uncommon but generally have extremely limited local appeal.

If you try to sell it locally, you are likely to get very little for it - and then have it returned as a "Bad barrel, keyholes all ammo" because somebody thought it was a regular 22...

Your better plan is to sell it online at a place like GB or AA where you could get the real value they bring. Those allow you to reach the group of people who on the hunt looking to find one of these..

Marlin Garden Gun value

The Bluebook values aren't very accurate in a lot of cases, and this is one - if you ask that little, it'll sell very quickly, and if you sell it on an auction site, what your Marlin garden gun brings will surprise you.

I don't see any history on GB, but I think that's only looking back 90 days. While the recent Savage smoothbore's are still available they're both new and Savage, and just not indicative of the Marlins - so, I'll make a rash guess by sayin' several hundred, and beyond 5 "severals" at that.

Karma...

will spank me for even thinking "told ya so".

On another shameful karma related note, I (very) briefly considered PM'ing you and making a ridiculous offer to take it off your hands, but then that wasn't what you asked!

You'll do just fine with it at auction.

Well I thank you for the input,I really didn't know what to ask if I listed it,sounds like I was off by a lot.I bought this thing in around 2000.I knew it was not a common gun but there is so little to be found on line
