Some months ago I posted on here about getting a marlin 93. While kinda true I didn't actually receive it till this week. My father in law saw it at a gun show and called me up to see if I wanted it. He said it was in ok condition but with a great bore. I said go for it. Now the stock its repaired with lead pins for some reason and will be replaced sometime down the line. The bore as I said is great I tried taking a picture of it but it didn't go well. I also dont know if its smokeless steel or bp. Research indicates that it could go either way. Anyway

Overall specs are:
DOM: 1896
26" round barrel with full tube
Crescent butt plate.
Price: traded him a Marlin 1936 in 32win spl of similar condition + $100.00
Loaded up some ammo with Starline 2.125 cases and Lee 250gr bullet over 9gr unique and it did fairly well for leaning up against a tree at 100yds.

Hey there HD -- Those round barreled '93's were a little "less common" in those days!! Looks like you got a good one. I've got it's cousin and I really like mine. Nice shooting. Best regards. Wind

Hey Hammer,

Fine looking rifle, and some great shooting!

(would leave the "lead" repair in service, as long as possible) Adds "character". LOL

Later, Mark

Man, I've got to stop looking at these 1893 threads . . . . . . . I'm feeling a gaping hole in my Marlin herd . . . .
