    I recently acquired a L61R 7mm Rem Mag. The stock is very light.
    Would this be considered a rare finish?

    Texgun congrats on acquiring your Finnbear. Light colored stocks are not unusual. Post some pictures when you get a chance. If your gun has checkering and rosewood forearm tip it would be considered a deluxe.

    I had one 30 years ago light walnut with dark walnut on the comb, and very shiny black bluing on barrel and action. Couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it. I traded it off and it floated around the gun shows for a while.

    Thank you SRAWW.
    By the way, do you do any hunting in Australia?

    Texgun as sraaw said you do have a deluxe model, I have one and love it. Hopefully your scope bases are not drilled and tapped into to the dovetails on the top of the receiver.

    NO. Just some set screws. Why? Is that a "no no"?

    Texgun - from a collector gun standpoint any modification reduces the value somewhat. Even the bases with set screws can mar the checkering on top of the dovetails.

    Well, let's say there are no marks, Marlin. How much would it go for?

    As you probably know pricing of any gun is highly dependent on condition. including figuring of the wood, condition of the butt pad, import marks, area you are selling it in, knowledge of the buyer, any accessories included, etc..
    Without being able to inspect it I would guess an average price might be $1200 - $1400 give or take. And as we always say it is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Anyone can spout out a number but unless they are willing to lay their cash in front of you for the gun that number can't be put in the bank.

    Best to look at sites like gunbroker, gunsamerica, etc. and find sales of comparable guns in same mdl/caliber/condition and see what they sold for or current bid amounts. Trying to value a gun for someone else is a fools errand especially sight unseen because my opinion is just that.
