882ss



Log in to see fewer ads
Been looking for a 22mag for a while I like the older 700 and 800 series of rifles, I found an 882 stainless for $229.00 + tax is it worth that, I haven't bought anything new in a long time and ended up selling everything I had last year after being diagnosed with stage four colon cancer and liver cancer but now that I'm feeling a little better would like to try and replace a few of what I had.
So is this a good price it's in very good shape.

Marlin 882

Hi Gun Lover,

I purchased a 883 SS a couple years ago for $305 + transfer of $15.00. It is like new not a spot wrong with it, it also has a scope on it. I think if you rifle is in excellent condition it is worth it.

I hope and pray your medical condition continues to improve and can be totally healed.

Bob.

Thoughts and prayers for your recovery from cancer. I was diagnosed with a stage 3 colon cancer in November 2012. Chemo sucks and I don't remember much of 2013. Chemo brain is a thing. I fortunately didn't have to sell any guns for the added expenses, but I didn't even touch a gun until about 8 months after finished up chemo. I simply didn't trust myself.

It did put several things in perspective. My advice, spend the $299+tax and get something you will enjoy shooting. Better yet, take a family member or good friend with you shooting. I shot more in 2014 with all 3 of my kids than I had in the last 15 years.

Buy it. I have one and it fits and shoots great. Like is too short to pole vault over mouse droppings. I paid $249 for mine. You deserve the rifle and the enjoyment. Good luck with your health concerns.

Thats a good price for a older Marlin .22mag. Especially if it has the walnut stock. They have gone up in price the last several years. I would get it. Best of luck with your health problems. We'll put you on the prayer list.

LIke the others have posted glad you are feeling better, our thoughts and prayers are with you. It does sound like a decent price....even with the ammo shortages, the 22 Mags have maintained and even increased some in value. Good luck with it

Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers, Marlin567994 glad you are doing good I too hate the chemo and will have to continue indefinitely. I owned one of these 20 years ago and liked it then it has the black plastic stock but can always get a replacement for it. Think I will pick it up and have some fun with it

That's a good plan for some mental therapy to have a good day shooting and make some days not so bad.

I am looking at spinal fusion in 2 weeks and haven't been able to shoot for about 8 months now I still go to the range every weekend for 8 months of the year with my 4 daughters and have been working with them on there shooting. Good luck with your illness and hope all works out for you. My advise would be to buy it and spend some time shooting the therapy is worth it. Wish I could be doing it.

Thanks guys.
trout48 it is my faith in God and his Grace and Mercy is why I am still here, that and the love and prayers of family and friends and my Church family, but anyway enough with that this is a gun board.
I think I will try and buy this rifle and learn how to shoot left handed only because my chemo port is on the right side the side I normally shoot from.
Just want to thank you all for your input

Ah, the chemo port. When I had my reversal, the surgeon also removed the chemo port. Before the surgery, I told him I wanted it. I put it on a clip keychain and normally have it on the main zipper of my daypack, right now it is on our Christmas tree. Just a little reminder.

Shooting from the wrong side sounds easier than it really is. Don't understand how those people make it look so easy doing it bass ackwards.
Great to read your faith in God and his loving grace; sadly often mocked today.
