FS: Like new JM Marlin .45-70 Guide Gun

#1

Post by thelurker » Thu Jul 26, 2018 3:48 pm

I purchased this rifle brand new in 2006 and except for a couple of range trips has lived its entire life in the safe. It has had exactly 48 rounds fired through it; purchased five boxes of ammo and have all spent casings plus left over ammo to go with it.

Gun is flawless and I cannot find any blemishes. Completely stock and have never had any work done on/to it. It is the blued version.

Now that my big bore itch has been scratched it is time to move this one to it's next home.

Ammo & casings as follows:

20 rounds of Buffalo Bore 350gn ammo (very hot ammo)
20 spent casings of the same

28 rounds of Remington Express 405gn
12 spent casings of the same

4 rounds of Winchester 300gn JHP
16 spent casings of the same

Price with all ammo & casings: $925 (approx $125 of this is ammo/casings)

Will post pictures later today.

That's a good deal. If I didn't already have an 1895, I'd be on it.

Is the "JM" model more desirable than the regular Marlin? I need some educating.

Yes sir. It denotes a rifle manufactured before the Remington buy out. It is a true Marlin.

The running joke is it stands for "Just Marlin".

After the buy out, there was a period of quality issues.

Yes sir. Since Remington came into the picture the quality took a severe hit and most of the new rifles have been fraught with issues. JM rifles have gotten more and more sought after for their quality and dependability. They are still available used but many of them have handling marks and wear. This rifle is basically brand new.

Regarding the ammo in this listing...the Buffalo Bore ammo sells for $65 today on their site per box and the others I paid around $30 per box back in 2006. So I'm basically selling the gun for $800 and the ammo for $125. That's how I arrived at the sales price. If you look on Gunbroker and other places you won't find one for less.

Thanks for looking.
