Looks like that rifle was made in 1898 according to the ser. #.
Nice early one.

Idorado,
Just so you know; the serial numbers on Marlin rifles don't always reflect the dates they were actually assembled or shipped. Although a serial number like your's would indicate a 1898 date, it may letter as a date much later, (even years later!) I have lettered many Marlins over the years, and have found some that dated 5-6 years later than the serial number would indicate.
Hope this helps.

redshift; You might try posting you rifle over at the marlin collectors association Gunnrunner has access
to the old records and might be able to give you a shipping date? The standard length barrel on the 1893
was 26 inch.The 28 inch was a special order.

Is Redshift the same poster as Idorado who started this thread 7 years ago? I'm not even sure what Redshift is referring to?
