Your Marlin model 989M2 will bring between 75-150 dollars based on how good the condition of your marlin is.
The guide I use states from $88 in good condition to $163 in new condition. Made from 1966-'79.
The Marlin 989M2 .22 caliber semiautomatic rifle was made from 1965-78. It was originally sold with a seven round box magazine (what some people call a clip) but the modern (written in 2012) Marlin brand 10 round or 7 round nickel magazines work fine in the 989M2. As extra information be aware that a "twin" of the 989M2 was made with a tubular magazine, holding nine rounds, and that twin is the 99M1 made from 1964-78. These two Marlin rifles are nicely made models with walnut stocks and handguards. They were made to look like the M-1 Carbine military rifle.
Could you be asking about the model 989m2?If so these were made in 1966 and are going for between 75-150 dollars.This was a promotional model semi-auto .22cal rifle.
I have one that I'm sure I bought in about 1967, I think. I bought mine in 1964 at a Woolco store in Tempe,AZ. AnswerThe 989 (standard model) was made from 1962-1966 The 989M2 (M1-Carbine lookalike) was made from 1966-1979.
There were 2 model 45 Western field rifles.The first one was a Marlin model 989M2,and the second was a Mossberg model 42 which had a 7rd magazine,24in sporting barrel with ramp sights,and a rear aperture sight.the mossberg model 42 was made during 1935-1937.The Marlin model is of more recent production.
The 99m1 was built from 1964-78. It was built to resemble the original M1 Carbine, as used in WWII. The 99M1 is the same gun as the Marlin 989 or 99C, so parts interchange with them. Answer The 989M2 is the clip-style magazine, as opposed to the tube style found on the M1 :)
To see the Used Value (Blue Book Value) of your gun you can go to www.UsedPrice.com All Glenfield firearms are really Marlins, so look for a manual for a Marlin 75. Value will not be much, I'd guess $100-$150 retail. Blue Book cross-references to Marlin 989M1, but the M1 isn't in the listings, but the basic 989 production started in 1962 and 989M2 in 1966, so it's in that range. Of about 25 .22 Marlins listed, only 4 have a price range other than $65-$135, and they're not far off. I had a model 75 marlin glenfield I bought at Sears in the early 70's. It is a 10 shot semi auto similar to the model 60 but does not hold as many rounds. I paid around $70 for rifle and 4x scope. I live in a saltwater environment and this was a very dependeble and suprisingly accurate rifle for the price. It is LR shells only.
