I came across a 32-20 with an octagon barrel that seems a bit on the old side. Decent condition but does need some TLC. Asking price was around $400. I do not know anything about this model (1893 I believe). What all can you tell me.
Not knowing anymore than what you are offering with regard to the condition it is in and all that ... I'd say that is a darn good price and I'd jump all over it around here.

Well if the caliber is .32-20, then it is not an 1893. It could be any of three old Marlin models 1888, 1889, or 1894. All were offered in .32-20 with octagon barrels. Need to check the serial number to know which as the range of numbers will determine the model. No tang markings on 1888, 1889, and early 1894's.

BTT. Some of us are a bit on the old side too, don't make us wait!
