Marlin 1895CB 45-70 prices

Recommended Posts

I am looking at a Marlin 1895CB .45-70 for sale. It is JM stamped and made in 2004.  It is in really excellent condition, with orig. box and an unmounted marbles tang sight.  The price is $850.00.  But looking in the Blue Book price for a 98% shows $600.00.  But Gun Broker, for similar or even less better looking are more like $900 to $1000.00 for the real Marlins/JM, not those new Rem made one.  What do you all think is the better ball park price for those rifles?

See how it cycles a bx of ammo.

If good-I'd buy it.

Offer $800.00 cash..........

There are a few for sale on the gunsamerica web site.  I saw four listed from $700 to $1,200.  The one for $1,200 is marked JM.  The price you mentioned doesn't sound out of the ball park, but I only have one Marlin and it's not a CB.

850 is decent price for 98% Marlin 45-70 CB.

I wouldnt take that for mine. If you want, just get it and be done with it. Searching around to save a few bucks is folly. Life is short, and time is worth more than money these days.

The ~$680 that Blue Book shows reflects more what a dealer might pay for yours.  This isn't always the case and depends on the firearm and region.

Frankly, I'm scared of these guns... I have an 1886 Winchester (Browning copy)... and think it's strong enough for regular .45-70 ammo.  I ain't so sure about these 336 framed 45-70s.   Yep, I'm probably overly cautious, but I've seen TWO of them explode... theoretically with std loads... :(

I'd like to know what(if any)mods were made to those 2 rifles.

Those 'std loads"-Were they factory or reloads? :huh:

Pretty wide 'brush' used, that we have no factual info on.......

Respectfully,

Wrong.

 

BB shows approximate retail values.

A pard of mine out here in Prescott, AZ has a nice one for sale, includes marbles peep sight mounted on the tang with both screws (tang has to be drilled and tapped for that rear sight) and a Lyman globe front sight with changeable apertures, he is also including dies, bullets and some loaded rounds. He is asking $950. for the package. It is a JM stamped gun next to new condition.

This is the same gun that they sell for the 450 marlin cartridge, and Buffalo Bore says their ammo is fine in the Marlin. Somebody did something wrong.

That Marlin is a very strong action. Mine is a LTD II, sold by Davidson's. I've sure shot some really hot loads in mine. The only thing that it hurt was my shoulder! I think they are a very good gun. Not as glamorous as the 86 Winchester, but certainly strong.  I don't have a great deal of confidence in the Blue Book values... seems anything that I have for sale is listed too low, and anything that I want to buy is listed too high! ;)

Shooter swore he only loaded to std velocity.  I only have 1 copy of photo.  It coulda been a blocked bore,  I'm just glad I was far away down the firing line.
