The weather was overcast yesterday and today and it was good for some picture taking. Trying to adequately capture this rifle in photos has left me with a higher appreciation of professional photography and lighting. The piano finish on the stock made it difficult to photo even with an overcast sky and shade.
Here's my Marlin 1893 in .32-40 with a 26" octagonal barrel made in 1898. There's a few dings and turned screws, but overall she's in pretty good shape for her age.
