As for the gun itself, here's what the Blue Book of Gun Values (online) currently says about it.


Model 1915 Favorite

.22 LR, .22 WRF (special order option), .25, or .32 cal., redesign of original Steven's Favorite, action slightly heavier and stronger, blue takedown frame, walnut stock and forearm, other internal changes, similar outward appearance, marked "SVG" after 1920, offered as the No. 27 with full octagon barrel, the No. 17 with round barrel, and the No. 20 with smooth bore barrel, 4 1/2 lbs. Mfg. 1915-1940.

Grading
100% - $450
98% - $395
95% - $300
90% - $195
80% - $165
70% - $145
60% - $125

Without seeing the gun, I can't grade it, but I will say this....  100% is unfired condition.  98% is fired, but excellent.  95% is where there may be some very minor cosmetic blemishes. 

The .25 Stevens rimfire was discontinued in 1950 meaning no more ammo.  Anyone that would buy the gun would do so strictly as a collector and really never intend to shoot it.  The ammo with the gun may add a little value to the overall price, but................

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
