Recently deceased FILs Marlin 1893 found in attic. Weapon slightly different than others shown on forum. Not sure if finish is factory or aftermarket. Appears to be in great condition and actions all work, though a little stiff. Would appreciate any insight as to DOM or style. Ser. is 349666. Receiver has been drilled and tapped for scope mount, which was mounted on another rifle. Several areas of wood appear to be worn, this is actually just dust that I failed to remove before taking the photos. Don't know if the rifle has ever been fired. In the case was a full box of Hawthorne 32 Winchester Special 170 grain soft points (priced at $3.79).
I just found this forum, I'm fairly active on another Marlin forum, but I can't believe there has been no response to this post. According to my information, your rifle was made in 1906. I'm pretty sure it's been fired as the furniture has been refinished (and possibly replaced, although it looks correct style for the rifle).
