what's it worth?

I have a 1960s era Marlin 30-30 that I would like to sell to a friend of mine to finance my next purchase. I don't want to over charge him but I want to get a fair price for this rifle. It is in pretty good shape, only a few small scuffs and such on the but of the stock. I know what I paid for it 4 years ago ($175) but I don't know what it's worth.

if someone could throw out a reasonable price range I would appreciate it.
 
There's lots of good info on the Marlin Owner's Forum, it's the best place for Marlin info. But I've noticed the prices you see there (it's a nation-wide board) don't always match up with the ones here in the PNW.

Mostly I see 336's go for $325-375, depending on condition and model. You can probably find your exact model with some digging on Marlin Owner's. The older ones don't usually last more than a week on the used gun rack around here (Eugene, OR area).

Straight grips and octagon barrels are found on special, harder-to-find models and then the prices can go up quite a bit.

ok thanks for the info guys, i'll look into those forums and i'm leaning toward $225, it's not perfect but it's a great usable rifle. I find there is a big difference between a great usable rifle and a rifle that makes the gun closet look good. those $300+ prices couldn't be for a usable rifle, way too high.
