    New member, question about a Marlin 1895 in 45-70 with a 31" octagon barrel

    Hey everyone,

    I am new to the forum and I have a question about a gun I just purchased. I have a Marlin 1895 in 45-70 with a 31" octagon barrel. If anyone has any information about this gun I would appreciate it. I had never seen one before, and it popped up on Backpage in my area. I figured I should probably buy it...

    What's the first two digits of the serial number.
    What is the model number roll stamped on the barrel near the rear sight.

    The first two digits are 24, attached is what it says on the barrel near the rear sight. I have also not seen something like that. There is a scope mount behind the rear sight, if the roll stamp is behind the sight I can take off the scope mount and look.

    I'd like to know if you pull that forearm off if that mag tube hasn't been brazed to make it longer. I'd say someone had this made up. Been a few like this show up here from time to time, all custom built. I don't know that Marlin ever made one like that.

    Barrel markings?

    Welcome from the Republic of Texas...If you take a look in the "Reference Library" toward the bottom of the forum list and search for your gun you might find a bunch of info...

    I posted a picture of the barrel markings above, I was told it came from the factory like this. But like you, I am a little skeptical and think it may be a custom.

    Hey BF,

    Way Cool. Most likely an aftermarket barrel.
