    I have an old Marlin 1893 Man. 1902.
    It is in pretty bad shape. Looking for parts supplier for this model.
    Wood is bad,barrel has been hacked at and the magazine tube has been shortened. Sights have been replaced as well. Not a good gun. My Dad bought this gun for me in about 1965 for $10.00. I cannot believe he let me shoot this thing. It set in his closet till his passing. I am not sure it is even worth redoeing.

    Welcome aboard. You can start at Numrich Arms and Brownells for parts. Whether it's worth refurbishing would be dependent on how much money you are willing to spend compared to it's sentimental value. Saving an old Marlin is always a good thing...saving one your Dad gave you is a great thing.
