What would be a fair price in today's market for a brand new Marlin 336C or 336W rifle?

Are lever action rifles effected by the panic going on right now?

Depends ? Brand new vintage ? or brand new current manufacture ?
Current mfg prices are high, $500 & up in these parts, and there is a lot of hit and miss with reference to quality of fit & finish and some reliability issues.
New vintage could be an awesome deal for the right price, caliber is also a factor. 30-30 Win , 35 Rem, etc... need more specifics.

Don't think levers will be effected, but you never know ?

Buy used Marlins at this time, i don't feel like going into it now. Google new marlins by Remington.... That should explain it all. And yes to all the people following i have seen from a friends Marlin that wouldn't cycle (locked up when loaded with ammo), and took 6ish months to get any response back, to an 1895 marlin missing its tang screw.
Good luck.

Dunno where you are ... I could get a nib 30-30 remlin 336w for @ 400 otd. Almost did. Refused it. Canted sights/ barrel. I'm not the only one to report this problem on THR.
Check it over VERY VERY CAREFULLY.

I got a NIB 30-30 336W at Wal-Mart a few years back for about $320. The W has a birch stock instead of walnut which is not an issue with me. Other than the stock, the W is indentical to the other blued 336's.

$385 sounds about right for a Walmart 336W. A 336C will be around $500+ new. Lots of 336C's used for under $350 and if buying I'd go that route. A great many don't seem to appreciate the better wood on the C or even notice the difference. I see 336C's selling used for the same price as W's all the time.

If selling a used rifle I'd ask around 75% of what a new rifle were selling for, if buying used I'd shoot for 50% and negotiate somewhere between 50-75% on price.

These guns have been going up in price for several years. Long before any ban talk and I expect them to continue to slowly increase. I like them, but they have reached the price point where I'm not willing to pay for them anymore. I've got a safe full, but I paid under $200 for most of them.

I just bought a 336w for $200 I got a great deal because of the craziness, levers aren't moving.
