Another Marlin value question - .375 Win


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hi, I have a Marlin 375 that I plan to sell, but don't really know what to price it at, as there are few if any on the auction sites to view to get an idea. The rifle is in decent shape, the bluing I would say is 95%, except the wood has missing varnish and some dings here and there, and generally looks only "fair". I suppose I could refinish the wood, but does that destroy the value (as it does an old Winchester lever when you refinish the wood)? Thanks for any help/advice you can give.

I passed on a 375 Marlin at a Gun show in San Angelo last month, the price was $550.00. The condition of the wood sounds about like yours but the bluing on this rifle was worn a bit more than yours.
You never quite know whether or not to second guess your self on these things but I feel I was correct to pass on the rifle. I have a Winchester in 375 so it is easier for me to pass on another rifle chambered for the same cartridge. If they would have come down to $500.00 I probably would have bought it just to have it. I honestly believe this was a $450.00 rifle but I was certain I could not purchase the rifle for that.

I just sold one on Gunbroker in similar condition. I got $650 but that included a Bushnell Banner 1-4x32 scope, brass, bullets and dies. I replaced it with a .358 Winchester which I find has a lot more recoil for very little better ballistics.
