If this rifle was made in 2005, shouldn't it have checkering on the stock? I thought they've been putting the checkering on the stocks for quite some time now.

At least I know it is a preRemington. I was thinking it was a little older, but that would also explain it's great condition.

It is going to take a little time before I have it in my hands. Can't wait!

I have been spending quite a bit of time over at the MarlinOwners website. What an excellent & informative site!

Anyways, after doing the research I'm very pleased with my purchase price. I think it will always be worth what I'm paying & then some. Although, I doubt it will ever go up for sale if they are as fun as I'm expecting!

The value of a used gun depends on how much an individual is willing to pay for it.
In my opinion $600 to $650 would be a fair price for a used Marlin 1894C in the condition you described.
Congratulations on buying a fine genuine Marlin rifle.I know you are going to truly love it.Please post pix when you get your new to you 1894C.

I just saw the question about date and checkering. I really don't know, as I'm not that familiar with the various models and details. I did research the serial numbers and production dates. There's a sticky on the Marlin Owners' forum with a list.

Maybe its a cowboy.A standard 2005 should have checkering.Is the stock walnut? There were 1894s made with plain stocks for stores but I don't know what years.

Sounds like one of the special run that Marlin did for Big 5 stores. I would bet that is has a birch stock. The regular production 1894C from 2005 should have a checkered walnut stock. I had one of these Big 5 guns about 2004 or 2005 and it was a really slick and accurate gun.

I'm assuming it has a birch stock ... it is lighter in color. This thing has been really fun to shoot, so far! It has been really accurate loaded with Hornady FP/XTP bullets pushed by H110 powder. She's a beauty & I'm really liking her!

If this rifle is a special run like previously mentioned, does it make it any more desirable or the value any higher?

I've got an 1894C I bought at a Big 5 in Sierra Vista in 05 (I think) for $350. Plain and boring stock, but fit and finish are great and she is a good shooter. Whether it's 125 or 158 XTP's, 180 rem sjhp's, all with H110, or various 38's. She'll feed wadcutter loads in 357 cases to boot.
