Smile 1949 Marlin 336-R.C. 30.30 value?

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Howdy, I have a 1949 F Marlin 336-R.C. 30.30 and I was wondering what price should I put on it? It is in mid-grade condition, the walnot stock is not cracked or anything, but the blueing is worn.
It has the original leather sling and has never been modified.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.

Look at the "Sticky" in the Rifles and Rifle Cartridges forum titled "Gun Values".

It'd be worth a bit more to some, if the "Waffle Top" isn't D/T'd for scope mount bases.

no modifications at all, all original

First of all, thank you very much for your replies on this thanksgiving holiday. This rifle has no modifications at all, exacly as it was taken out of the box in 1949. The blueing is worn and there is some light "scuff" marks in the stock, but in original shape. The old gentleman who owned it passed it on to a relative, so its one owner. I have not cleaned it or touched it at all. Any information would be welcome. Enjoy the holidays.

I would expect it to change hands somewhere in the $275 to $300 range to a shooter/hunter, with maybe 20% more to a collector that wants/needs any waffle-top to complete their collection, until somthing in more pristine condition comes along.

Go to Gunbroker and run a search of Marlin 336 rifles and check there. If you register as a user you can use the "Add to Your Watch List" option and watch as the bidding goes along. You'll also see the final selling price.

I'm thinking more in the $400-$550 range. Maybe more.

First it does not have a cross bolt safety, a trigger block safety, it has a one piece trigger.

I also has a secondary spot to put the mainspring retainer in, to make it easier to cycle the lever.

It is drilled and tapped on the side for a peep sight.

It will have ballard rifling to make shooting cast a little nicer.
