    1893 ?

    Iím looking at a Marlin 1893 in carbine configuration. Case colored receiver, round 20Ē barrel, no saddle ring, steel but plate and Marlin Safety on the top of the receiver. The only thing that I canít figure out is the caliber. No visible markings and it micís around .25. Possibly a 25-36 Marlin caliber. Only issue is I donít see this listed as an option in the carbine. Your thoughts?

    Look under the rear sight. I dont think its correct and may be covering the cal stamp.

    Iím going to try tomorrow. I thank you all for noticing the sight length. I knew it was incorrect. I just didnít think about it covering the caliber. So they did in fact offer the 25-36 in carbines? .

    It should be a flip up ladder rear sight, to bad it's missing!! Let us know what you find out!!

    OOPS! The src has the ladder sight, not the carbine.

    .25-36 serial numbers fall in the 115,038-122,813 range. If I read Brophies book right!!

    I got it! And true to your suggestions the barrel marking is under the rear sight. So I do in fact have an early 1893 Carbine in 25-36 Marlin. I cannot find reference to this in Brophyís. The serial number is 336,xxx.

    Nice. Just missing the carbine ring and loop. And the rear sight.

    You can get a copy of the original factory records page for $9.99 here. Other then that the gun looks right to me.

    Congrats! You got your self a nice carbine! Don't be in a rush to find the parts. The ring and staple show up for 25-50, the proper sight is a little more cash!! 100-150

    Contact Larry Osborn for the ring and staple. He used to have a fair number of them, and maybe he still has some?

    Looks like your carbine might have had a receiver sight added to it at some point? Do I see two extra holes on the top left side?
