Hey all. George here from the cornfields of Indiana. Have been a member here for several years but have only been on a few times. I have a Model 1893 with the octagon barrel that is in pristine condition. I bought this weapon back in the 90s from a store in Park City, Utah. I have never fired it in all the years I've owned it. If I can ever learn how to post pictures on here, I'll put a few up. She's a beauty. Went to the Marlin website to give them the serial number hoping they could give me more info and looks like Ruger purchased them recently. Hopefully when they are back up running I can find out more on this fine rifle. Have been looking for the receipt when I bought it, but to no avail as yet. I'm thinking I paid somewhere between $1,000 and $1,200. I know when I purchased it, I felt I overpaid but didn't care. Just wanted it regardless. Until next time, everyone take care.
