Marlin 1893 30-30 Lightweight  Guns > Rifles > Marlin Rifles > Modern > Lever Action
Description: Marlin model 1893 rifle in 30-30 caliber. Lightweight model with Special order 22 inch half octagon half round barrel, fancy wood with pistol grip. Brophy book says this one was made in 1901. Serial numbers on trigger plate, upper tang and buttstock all match. Receiver still has traces of case color. Barrel appears original finish now patina. Wood was probably sanded and re-oiled. Bore has strong rifling but has frosting, should be a good shooter. Factory drilled and tapped for tang sight. Screw heads look nice. Rear sight looks original. comes with the original white bead front sight that fits perfect in dovetail. Hammer spring replaced leaves a deep hit in primer. Trigger is crisp like single action Colt Army, the half cock and full cock positions are solid. Action is smooth, feeds and ejects loaded rounds like it should. I was going to send to Jessie Ocumpaugh and have it opened up to 38-55 but picked up a modern Marlin in 38-55 that I can put a scope on.

Sold as-is. It was a beautiful gun in a rare configuration, but it is almost 118 years old. Have your gunsmith check it out before shooting.
