1894CL classic

Post by Tulip »

Hello I just found a 1894CL "Classic" (this is stamped on barrel) in 32-20 win in the local pawn shop. It has the crossbolt safety and S/N is 100##### so I believe it to be made in 1990. They are asking $500 out the door price and my question is this a good deal ? A okay deal or a SCREAMING TAKE ME HOME NOW deal? I dont have much interest in this caliber but do enjoy collecting various Marlin firearms. Right now I have a 39A made in '66, a MR-7 .270, a 1894FG in .41mag, and a 336 .30-30 of '76 vintage. Let me know what ya think.
Thanks :)

I forgot to add that I rate this firearm a SOLID 98%. Beatiful wood no scratches and rifle appears to be unfired or fired VERY little. Has no blueing wear on slide at all.

500 seems at the upper end of the price range, but they ain't making any more of them, either.

If it appeals to you, I would say go for it! :D The 32-20 is a fun round. SW

Depends on the part of the country you are in. I sold one new in box for $500 but have seen them take $600 at a gun show here in the Northwest. I don't think you will get hurt in that price range for a 98% rifle.
