I have a rifle marked Model 1893 on the top tang. Serial number is 441174. It has a round barrel and is marked Marlin Fire-Arms Co. New Haven CT., U.S.A. with three patent dates listed below. I'm having a hard time finding a manufacture date for it. Can any one help? Thanks.

Sadly, the records from 1906 forward were lost in a fire...

Oral Family history tells me that my 1893 with serial 43x,xxx was purchased in 1912...Dated picture of the gun in use in 1914 leads me to believe the 'story'...

That would make me guesstimate your gun to be 1913 1914 or so...

But anything is possible in the world of Marlins...
