    It's a nice collectible rifle, and here's what the current Blue Book says:

    MODEL 1894
    - .25-20 WCF, .32-20 WCF, .38-40 WCF, or .44-40 WCF cal., case colored receiver, 10 shot tube mag., 24 in. round or octagon barrel, straight or pistol grip stock. Mfg. 1894-1934.

    Grading 100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10%
    N/A N/A $2,500 $1,995 $1,650 $1,250 $875 $625 $450 $400 $375 $350

    Add 25% for saddle ring carbine.
    Add 10% for .44-40 WCF cal.
    Add 40% for Baby Carbine with 18 in. barrel and 1/2 mag.
    Add 15%-20% for takedown model, depending on condition.
    Factory special orders/features will add premiums, depending on the desirability of each option and the gun's original condition factor.
    Strong, original case colors over 95% condition can result in $2,500 asking prices.
    Later production guns were marked "Model '94" and have less value. This model was also available in both a Carbine and Musket variation.

    It looks like a Model 1893 (1894 had a 24" barrel).

    1893 barrel length options were 26", 28",30", and 32".
    My reference shows .25-20 Marlin as a cartridge for the '94; the '93 shows a .20-36 Marlin for the "93; so I'm not so sure about that.

    Calibers shown were: .25-36M; .30-30; .32 Specia; .32-40; .38-55 (1893) and .25-20; .32-20; .38-40; .44-40 (1894).

    Anyway; I do believe you have a 1893 (barrel length); and it looks like you have a Lyman #2 tang sight on it.

    The'93 was made from 1893-1936.

    Condition is not pristine; but I think it should go for $700+.
