Marlin 1894 Cowboy 44-40

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

 

Ran across a Marlin 1894 Cowboy, 44-40, 24" barrel.  It is in very good shape.  Just wondering what the value might be.  I understand that they didn't make them very many year.

 

Thanks for the info.

I would rather have 44-40 than a 38, 45 etc anyday. If you are shooting BP the bottleneck cases are the best way to go.

I bought a used '97 vintage .44-40 Cowboy LTD in August of 2015 for $699.99 with a Lyman tang sight. BUT, the butt stock and fore end had been replaced with vintage uncheckered wood with a crescent butt plate. Nice wood, but an odd thing to do.

I know of a JM of that model that sold for somewhere in the $1000-1200 range recently.

 

Nice rifle. I'd have bought it but I shoot CC and cannot use a Marlin. :(

I have one with the usual safe and shooting beauty marks.  It's not for sale, but I'd put the value north of a grand.  It's easily the most accurate centerfire rifle I have.

I had one we picked up in Nashville.  But we were not on the road an hour on our return home when it came to be Sawmill Mary's.   It was tuned by Widder.  Slick gun.  She has at least 5 other Marlin 1894s but this is THE one.

Then there is a Century Limited in 44WCF.   One of the few guns we can't shoot.

I don't know.  It just sets in the dark safe with a sock over it.  I think it's a recluse. :rolleyes:

She’s sittin’ there in the dark just cryin’ for you to take her out and press the bang button.  

 

My my dad always said there was no such th8 g as a gun too collectible to shoot. If he didn’t feel comfortable pulling the trigger, he’d sell it to someone who needed an overpriced safe queen.

Hi

 

Thanks for all the comments.  The rifle is the just the Limited NOT the Century  Limited like the picture above.  Judging from the comment, the value should be in the $100-1100 range??  Is That correct??

PS;  A number of year ago, I briefly owned a Century Limited model.  Got if off gun broker.  When it arrived, the stock was broken so I sent it back.

Best 44-40 ever made!, I would say 1,000 - 1,100. Paid $700 for mine back in about 2010
