I'm thankful there's a Buy it Now option so no one can steal this one away from me with a ridiculous bid! Thanks for the link.

Save your money, that one is not worth a penny over $44,500.  

Unbelievable.

I think it's the extra holes in the receiver and the missing portion of the rear peep along with the ultra rare Marbles rear sight that got the price up there......

Did I miss any more desirable features??

I have a .219 Zipper I'd sell for much less. Have a ton of ammo and dies also. Just in case you're wondering though, it isn't a Winchester. It's a Marlin. I'm quite fond of it.

The gun vise looks familiar, reminds me of a gun shop where I used to spend quite a bit of time. I mounted quite a few scopes in that vise before he got a better one (Tipton) but I always liked that old vise. As for the gun I have no idea, maybe I was distracted by the vise because I must be missing something here.

Uggghh !! My eyes, my eyes, they are bleeding !!!  Good God man, why on earth would you post pictures of dare I say it... a Marlin !  You have committed total sacrilege, and I am highly offended by your blatant lack or moral fortitude !!

C'mon Bert.  I had a Marlin once and it was probably the highest condition gun I ever had.  And if you remember you helped me get a bolt assemble online so I could use the firing pin.  But that one was broke too.  Finally Denny Hanel told me to just buy a brand new firing pin and it worked. I eventually traded that gun to Walt for cash and a very fancy COLT pistol.  I sold the Colt to help buy a 1873 after Walt passed away.

Oh, that Marlin was the only 30 WCF I have ever owned.

All of you who profess to like Marlins need to "stay in the closet" !!  The next thing you will be professing to is owning both a Chevy and a Ford truck !!

I don't own a single Marlin and drive a Ram Megacab diesel.  Do I get bonus points?

I actually have a few (relatively) modern Marlins and even an early TD 1894 Marlin in 32WCF. Rumor has it there could be a pretty sweet Savage 99 stashed around here but you know how people talk. Wink And yes, I’ve even posted pictures of an 1874 C. Sharps hereabouts. I probably have a few post-64 Wannabe Winchesters and an FN Supergrade for my more serious hunting endeavors. I won’t admit to having an MSR but concede one could come in handy for social purposes.

What do you expect from a guy that drives a Ford?

Hello my name is Vince, and I own  Marlin. 

It's a model 600 and as accurate as any other semi-automatic .22 I own.

Well… OK! Me too!  Arising to admit… My gun collecting… “Impure… In thoughts & actions!” And not just de facto... “With intent… And loving it!” Over half century, seldom, “focused targeting”. Rather, ‘random’! Whatever brand, model, style, type, etc.; such garnering my "Leering, gawking drooling" attention!

All guns...  “Targets of opportunity” ; “specializing in generalization”! The never satiated effect of: “So many guns, so little time.” Inherent inhibition, only “so little” context as funds, ‘bugger detail’ of victories denied!

I ever embrace “equal opportunity”! From famous makers & pristine products to such “say what” as Bubba-craft era products. Stuff which perhaps only “certain discriminating, visionary collectors” as I :), ‘to appreciate’! Embracing ‘the spectrum’. (Awaiting ‘the day’ as “gun Bubba-Art”, eventually the counter-culture ‘in-thing’ & I; more likely my heirs, with the market cornered… Astoot investment, turned Astute!

 

Be it Wonderful Winchesters, Marvelous Marlins, Sumptuous Savages, Strangely... Stevens? Levers equally gaining leverage in heart & wallet!  Gun safe ‘open door policy'; welcoming all! And now… Looking back over half century-plus panorama of “seek & buy”! Achieving happy “diversity”; the blondes, brunettes, redheads, 'twenty-something to 'mature'… of my own collection… My steel encased - chastity insured, ‘Harem’ & loving ‘em all! Finding ‘virtue’ in the many! 

So! There you have it. My name is John and I’m.. A Polygamous Gunophile; aka collector with perversion. Salaciously enjoying… With intent! 🙂 🙂 🙂

And as closing here Burt; conjuring something of which you and I share appreciation. “Young Frankenstein”! Final scene, final moments! As Dr “Frankensteen” (Sic) gets the girl... ‘literally.’ Music as fading away… “Oh sweet mystery of life at last I’ve found you…”

🙂 🙂 🙂

Best to all & Stay Safe!

John

Been there done that.  I'm a car guy and not stuck on one brand. I even owned a Dodge once.

Guess you haven't watched that History Channel series on the Big Three auto companies--the Dodge Bros made the Model T the great success it was...until Henry to went too far in taking advantage of them.
