I have a Marlin 22 LR model 989. The gun is in good condition. I was trying to find out how much the gun is worth. I live in Phoenix Arizona.

semi auto .22 carbine. I don't know and exact number, but don't plan on it being too much.

Hi, I found it in my 2005 BlueBook. It was made from 1962 - 1965 in an M1 or M2. BB value is $65 to $135.oo in 2005. So your guess.

It is from 1965. I would say its in good condition. There is a little nick on it, but otherwise its in good condition. It is actually my mother-in-laws. It was given to her by her father and she does not use it and was offered 100.00. I figured that was a fair price but was not sure.

I just spoke with my

I just spoke with my mother-in-law. She said she is not sure that is why we wanted to know its worth. Actually she was offered 125.00 for it several years ago during a yard sale but at that time did not want to sell it.

I was looking on the gun auction site and saw that one just sold for 150.00 but I am not sure the condition.

re: 989

I think she should keep it or give it to her son-in-law. That was a 2005 price and guns are going up especially semi autos. Keep it man. Will $150.00 change her lifestyle?

Was our service quick enough? LOL
I am just below Tucson on 19 and Reaper is up in your neck of the woods/desert. I used to live in Peoria, Bell & the 101.
