Marlin Model 1893, 30-30 cal., 26 inch octagon barrel, takedown, manufactured circa 1902. The tang is marked MODEL 1893. Serial number 256xxx. NRA Modern Good to Very Good Condition, all original, including the sights. Approximately 94% blue remaining on barrel and magazine tube. The frame shows small areas of case color, but mostly a mottled metallic-gray surface. The stock shows the usual dings & dents, but no cracks or missing pieces; it retains most of the original varnish. The bore is somewhat dark, but has strong rifling. Mechanically excellent; there is a very small amount of play in the takedown, as is typical of these old rifles. $999.00 + $50.00 insured shipping (to FFL or C&R only); bank cashier's check, USPS or Walmart money order, or credit card (3.5% extra).
