Hi y'all,

New to the forum. A quick story. I just attended my step-dads funeral and the day after my sister says she found a rifle in his closet and wanted me to make sure it was unloaded. When she unwrapped it, the rifle turns out to be e same one my Pop and I hunted with when I was a teenager with him in Llano, Texas. I thought it was long gone since the was about 35-40 years ago.

It is a model 93 with s/n 2855. He had inherited it from his step-dad when he passed in the 70's. Brought back good memories pushing through the brush hunting white tail.

Question: trying to determine the manufacture date and validate it is a 30-30 as I remember. I'm going to see getting it restored since it has been neglected for too long. Little surface rust but I've oiled it and it racks the lever action smoothly.

Thanks to to all and thanks for listening to my story.
