    Am looking to buy a marlin 30/30 lever action for my son.
    Any one got a 2nd hand rifle you want to get rid of?

    Just to make you aware mate, Serious Shooters have the Mossberg 30/30 levers for $499 at the moment on special.

    They're not as nice as the Marlins, but for $499 you can't argue with that.

    Thanks. I really want to get a marlin if possible, better quality from what i've read. They go for $900 new but sell around the $600 mark 2nd hand.
    My dog ran into the back of my mountain bike 2nyt, got rapped up in the rear wheel = $700 vet bill ... there goes my gun money!!!

    I don't own one but I've shot both. The mossbergs are a bit looser are definitly not as well made. The marlins are side ejected (mossbergs are top) so the marlin is way easier to sort out with a scope. The quality is much obviously better with the marlins if you hold them. If it was me I'd go for the marlin.

    Hope the dog's ok!

    Another cool rifle to look at is the rossi rio grande,ive shot one before and holy hell they are fun... a slightly cheaper alternative to the marlin.... however having owned only marlin rimfires I can speak of their quality and value for money, fantastic rifles that never let you down...

    I've had a couple of Rossi's. Never again.
    Again, if funds permit, I reckon the Marlin is probably the better option. I'd love one myself as a bush gun, but there are other guns on my list I need first. I haven't dealt with their rimfires, but I do like what I've owned of the center fires.

    oh really? hmm intresting to hear your opinion of em, Seriously I reckon the old Marlin's for what they are do truly represent value and quality without being cheap,shitty and pieces of shit that fall apart and dont work, If your pondering how good they are you know your in the wrong place, DONT THINK just do!
