Kalamity check the local newspaper too. I just bought a used Glenfield (Marlin made) 75C carbine for $50.00 from a seller in the local paper. I shot about 300 rounds through it saturday without a single malfunction. This rifle holds 14 rounds and is very light weight at about 5 pounds. It has a 16" barrel.
If you watch these marlin 60s come up regular around here and the most I have ever paid for a used one is $85. Plus their accuracy will surprise you.
