Re: Marlin 1893
Here's a little info for you......The Model 1893 rifle was made from 1893 to 1936 in the calibers .25-36 Marlin, .30-30 Win., .32 Spl., .32-40 WCF, and .38-55 WCF. It came with 20 to 32 in. round or octagonal barrels, blue or case colored receivers (the case-colored are worth more), 10-shot tube magazine and straight grip stock.
This model had two barrel variations - one marked "special smokeless steel" and the other "for Black Powder".
Later production guns were marked "Model '93" and have less value.
