Default 30-30 prices

Have 30-30 prices really gone crazy or am I missing something.
I was gonna sell a couple but wanted to make sure I did not over price them

JM Marlins and Winchester 94’s have gone up a lot in the last few years.

The Marlins are getting some crazy amounts.

Even the Marlin 336W I have is going for more than what paid for it. I bought a Winchester ranger 30-30 from here a couple years ago that is going for way more than I paid for it.

I guess i have been out of the gun buying game for a while

They’re bringing more than they’re worth, but that’s true of other things as well. At least guns don’t drop drastically in value as soon as you take ownership.

Remington went bankrupt recently and they sold the Marlin brand off to Ruger. My understanding is Ruger is coming back out with the 336, but in the interim, there is zero supply. Similar thing when Winchester firearms was bought by FN and they changed plants. The 94 skyrocketed in retail.

I bought one on here pre covid. Broke even a year later and could have gotten more but didn't want to gouge anyone. They ain't being made like they used to be so prices went up.

Idk about that, but all the lever guns are going for way more than theyíre worth. Especially when compared to a bolt action in the same price range.

Back in 2001 I picked a Marlin with scope for $120 about a week later I'm talking to my buddy and he says I have a Marlin with a scope on it in a hard case if you want to buy it, I said yea maybe let me take a look at it, about a week goes by before I see it and I say ok how much do you want? He say's give me $80 for everything. Man that was a good few weeks.

Dang I've definitely been out of the gun buying game for a hot minute. Seen some on here selling for over a grand and even over 2 grand. WTH is going on? I've never paid that much for a firearm.

Crazy to me how much the Marlins and Winchesters have appreciated the last few years. I could understand the Winchesters when they stopped production, and how the JM marlins would fetch a small premium after the remlins, but dang they have gone nuts. Sure wish I would have got a 336 when they were cheap! I own a Marlin guide gun in 450 and an old winchester 25-20, but no dang 30-30.

Mine are going to the kids and grandkids. I just gave my 39 Century Limited that I got new to my oldest. I have 2 Marlins 30-30s that are going to grandsons. One was made in '66 and the other in '71. These are heirlooms, so it don't matter what they would go for.

The JM stamp Marlin will now go the way of the USA made Winchester 94.
