Since I was young the biggest game I ever had the opportunity to hunt was deer and I usually used my old 06 and never had a problem. <!--emo&--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''><!--endemo--> Now I live in Maine and will someday be lucky enough to be drawn for a moose permit. So I figgered "Big ol moose needs big ol gun". <!--emo&--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''><!--endemo--> After doing months of research I decided the best thing for me personally was to get the Marlin 444s. (20 in. barrel, non-ported barrel, ballard rifling, pistolgrip, quality, etc.) Since my best bud here has his FFL he went on a nationwide search and finally located the a 444s. While I was waiting he called and said he talked to a guy who has Marlin Commemorative in excellent condition he never used and wanted to trade for a old 357 ruger security six I had. What else could I do but go for it!!! Well, did I do good or what? :biggrin: Anybody give me an idea on what the old Marlin might be worth?
