NEWBIE ALERT! Hello to all. Found this 1893 Marlin, in 32-40 Win, at a garage sale in Ruskin, Florida. Unfortunately all metal has been hot tank blued and looks almost like a new rifle. It has the 26' octagonal barrel and is in very good condition. It's not a first edition as the model number in on the upper tang. It came with a new reproduction stock that will have to sanded, stained and sealed. The seller said someone gave it to him and didn't know what happended to the original stock. The bore is in really great condition also. My phone camera did't take a very nice picture. If anyone's interested I can take a couple of better pictures a little later.
