Hello guys,
How rare is a half octagonal/half round barrel on a Marlin mod 1893?
I haven´t seen any before but that is here in Sweden.
On the other side I have seen not so few with that configuration when it comes to the Marlin mod 1895.
Any thoughts about this should be very much appreciated.
Regards,
Hombre

There aren't any records to say how many half octagon barrels were made, but they are pretty rare. Wish I could give you a guesstimate of the ratio of 1/2 to full octagons. The half octagon was a special order item, at extra cost, so it wasn't often ordered. There are rarer features, but this feature usually adds about 20-25% to the gun's value.
Hope this helps.
