How do I pick a 45-70?

Hi All....

I bought a new Marlin 336 XLR SS a year back in 30-30. I'm thinking a 45-70 might be a nice addition - if I find one from a private seller or in a pawn shop.

Are there preferred models, S/N ranges, barrel lengths, or other characteristics etc. that would help me know if I stumble into a good opportunity?

I'm looking for a shooter. A saddle gun is OK, but not preferred. I'd like the bnefits of a longer sight radius. Any hunting would likely be elk or larger.

Any advice on pricing would be appreciated, as I have no idea what a used gun would fetch. Advice on evaluating condition would sure be helpful!

Thanks, folks!
