The Marlin Model 1893 lever-action was a strong competitor to Winchester’s famous 1894 and the forefather of the Marlin 336. The action on the 1893 is side-ejecting, providing better protected from weather and debris than the competing top-ejecting Winchester. Later models have a round bolt rather than the square bolt found on the originals, a change that makes it easier to mount a scope or aftermarket sight. This rifle features a blade front sight, an adjustable buckhorn rear sight, and a flip-up peep tang sight. Its wood and bore are in very good condition and its metal is in good condition.
