Marlin 375 price survey


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hi guys, new member with a question. What is a reasonable price to pay for a Marlin 375 in good condition? How about one that is still NIB? I am interested in getting one, but amazed at the prices they seem to command. Thanks in advance for your response.

Greatings from Southeast Texas. I don't have a hope of finding one locally as the Marlin Big Bore's were never a popular choice in this particular area. I have bought two off the internet that were in excellent condition. I paid $400 for one and $450 for another. These are hunting rifles, without boxes or papers, both had the Weaver 63B bases installed, and are in excellent condition. In fact, these two rifles are in the same shape as the Marlins that I have bought new so the condition might be called, new/previously owned???

I see forum members finding them at pawn shops for $250 or so but they seem to describe them with the typical battle scars delivered from a life hunting the woods. Nothing wrong with that condition at that price. I'm sure others have found new rifles at that price. I've also seen rifles in this used condition placed on the internet with the reserve price set at the level a "new" would demand. They typical don't sell because they are what I and others, I guess, would consider a $250 rifle.

If I were to buy a new Marlin Big Bore from my local gun shop, it would cost me about $475 for any current model or caliber. I figured that the Marlin 375s were made in the 80's but otherwise new so what the heck! I own 13 different centerfire Marlins including the 356 Win and 30-30 Imp but feel that the 375 Win offers what is best in all. I love my 444s but if I had to end up with only one rifle, heaven forbid, I would be hard pressed not to choose the 375 for my deer and hog hunting.

I traded a bolt gun for mine. Value was about $325 - $350. I've seen them go for over $500. It is an awesome levergun.

I think I paid $450 for mine. It's one of those new/used rifles. In about 98% condition but mighty dang purdy.

Dr. A (or any other of you guys) if you spot one in good shape at a decent price, please make a post to let me know. I am actively looking for one in good condition - but like eveyone else I don't care to get skinned on the deal.

Thanks,
Gldprimr

I paid $350 for mine at a gun show. It is one of the more accurate rifles I own.

I looked at Auction Arms, GunBroker, and GunsAmerican. I believe there are 5 listed on these sites.

CWH - I am waiting on the UPS truck to show up at my FFL hoders place of business. Thanks for directing me to the Marlin 375 on Auction Arms. I had overlooked it. Hope it looks as good in person as it did in the photo osted on Auction Arms.

gldprimr--Glad it worked out for you! A Marlin .375 that I saw on GunsAmerica just arrived yesterday. This is the first time I've bought a gun on line and I am pleased. The gun was here seven days from the day I mailed the check.

Should have all the reloading components in a couple days and hope to shoot it this weekend.

Good luck and take care.
