I saw an 1893 takedown this afternoon at a LGS. He had it marked $1400. It was in good shape, all brown patina and good looking stocks. All of the screws look good and not buggered. I broke it down and its dry and dirty but the bore showed no obvious flaws. What else should I be looking at or for?

The last Marlin takedown I bought was a Model 1895 in 38-56 with a 32" octagon barrel in about the same shape as the subject 30-30. Bought from a man in Selma, Alabama for 65 bucks! Of course, that was in 1965.

1400? I dinna know...

It sounds like you have a winner. If it goes together tight I'd by figuring out a way to buy it.
