Does that gun have a Monte Carlo stock - affect value if so?

Smooth stockdon't know what a Monte Carlo stock look's like
Firearms Expert: Philip Van Cleave, Firearms Instructor replied 11 months ago

Here's a link to a photo of a Monte carlo Carlo. Just look at the area behind the grip and see if that is like the photo (Monte Carlo stocks have a raised area where you cheek touches the stock):

Just want value of gun's
Firearms Expert: Philip Van Cleave, Firearms Instructor replied 11 months ago

OK- I'll assume you don't have the Monte Carlo stock and will do the appraisal accordingly. I will put a note so that you know how to adjust the price if you end up having that stock.

Back in about 5 minutes.

Additional Information – round breech bolt, 24 in. barrel with 2/3 mag., deluxe checkered walnut stock and forearm, quick detachable swivels and 1 in. sling. Mfg. 1948-62.

This Firearm appraisal is a value estimate on the appraised firearm for the date of the appraisal. The value quoted is a real world market value (also known as a private party value) and is the amount you should expect to pay for the firearm. This is not an appraisal for retail or wholesale purposes.

The information and values in this appraisal are compiled from a variety of sources including the current editions of the Blue Book of Gun Values , my internal reference library, my network of Firearms experts across the United States, firearms auctions, and through various online sites.

The values in this appraisal are based on recent sales of comparable and similar firearms taking into account the rarity, desirability, and overall original condition of the firearm. In the case that a comparable sale is not readily available, the value is based on a projected amount that the firearm would be expected to sell for.

All information compiled in this firearm evaluation using the Blue Book of Gun Values online database and Photo Percentage Grading System is copyrighted 2017 by Blue Book Publications, Inc. and may not be used for any other purpose without written permission from the publisher. Any unauthorized usage of the Photo Percentage Grading System for the evaluation of firearms values and color photo percentage breakdown is also expressly forbidden by the publisher.

1870 is a model # or what does t stand for
Firearms Expert: Philip Van Cleave, Firearms Instructor replied 11 months ago

That is probably the serial number. Let me see if that would be a valid one. Back shortly.

Firearms Expert: Philip Van Cleave, Firearms Instructor replied 11 months ago

Is there one or two letters in front of that 1870?

Firearms Expert: Philip Van Cleave, Firearms Instructor replied 11 months ago

Never mind, I didn't notice that you had put "Est." in the original question. That's when Marlin was first established as a company.

There is a serial number on that gun. Look under the lever on the bottom of the gun or on the tang right behind the lever.
