A friend of mine (older) who is no longer able to hunt due to age/health issues was talking with me about hunting one night at bowling and mentioned that he still had his guns and was wondering if I wanted them. So, curious to what he had to say in regards to what he had, he told me a few shot guns, this, that, the other thing and a Marlin 30/30 Lever Action. He stated that it was in good shape and about 15 years old.
I told him I was interested in possibly the 30/30 and asked him for a price. With neither of us being a pricing expert on guns (new or older), here's my question. Let's just say it's in excellent condition (because I'm not an expert on what exactly to look for), what do you think would be a fair price for this gun? Now like I said, let's just assume it's in excellent condition.
I know that it's hard to make educated guesses off of little to no information, but I want to be fair in the transaction ashis wifeis having health problems and I like the man enough to give him top dollar for what he is asking. Call it crazy, but he's such a nice guy that anything I can do to push his price up, I'm going to (within reason, of course).
Sorry for the lack of info, but I haven't seen the gun yet. Just trying to get a ballpark figure of what to expect. Thanks.

Excellent, like new. $250.00 or less. It's just a used Marlin .30/30 - nothing at all special about such a contraption.
