    Glock 19 for a Marlin 1894C ?

    I need to bounce this idea off someone.....
    I really want a Marlin .357/38 lever action carbine.
    Is it a fair trade to offer a Gen 3, Glock 19 in good condition, extra mags, crossbreed holster for a good condition Marlin 1894C in .357 ?

    What do you think?

    Sounds like a fair trade to me. It pretty much depends on how desirable each gun is to each trader.

    Warning tin-foil hat area:

    While I love lever action rifles, I don't think I'd let go of the Glock (unless you have another). The window of opportunity to get a lever action rifle may be bigger than the one to get a compact high capacity semi-automatic pistol. Tough call as I do not know the value of the rifle, and I love my G19.

    Good luck.

    +1. Current market value seems to be comparable...

    If you can trick someone into taking a glock,grab the Marlin and run!

    Yes, a fair trade; the values are, in my mind, very close.

    Another thing to consider is that .357 carbines are not easy to find as of late, while Glocks are everywhere. Add in that, as you say, you really want one...

    Get the carbine.

    That would be a very good trade.

    very helpful comments, some very funny too. I give the edge to the Marlin, but can't seem to sell or trade a gun very easily.

    Take out a loan, keep the Glock and buy the Marlin. You know you will probably end up replacing the Glock later.

    Lets' see here. Trade a foreign made hunk of plastic for an American made solid steel firearm?

    You are out of your mind not to.

    Yup, I'd jump on that trade also. I like my G19, but I'd love to have a Marlin 357 lever gun.
