Would this be considered a fair price?

    Pawn shop has a mint Marlin 1895 guide gun in 45-70 for $850. 18.5” non-ported barrel, straight-grip walnut stock with checkering, and JM stamp. It may even be unfired.

    With no JM stamp... playing the lottery with quality

    I gave $600 for a ported JM stamped... with a scout scope, but that was a few years back

    If he is willing to pay $850...then it is worth $850.......to him......I would bet the PS didn't give more than $400.00 if that much (jmho)....not saying it's not worth $850.00 or that is is worth $850.00........just something to compare it to....

    In my opinion that is about $200 too high. A JM stamped guide gun in great shape should be around $650.
