Post by ninefinger175 » Sun Dec 23, 2012 7:07 pm

I have a model 1893 Marlin lever rifle, it is a .32 special with a 26" barrel and the serial # is 12CC, does anyone know when it was manufactured?

Ninefinger175;

Is it marked Model 1893, or is it marked "Marlin, Model '93"? Makes a difference..........
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

Chetshabit;

The Marlin Model 1893 was made from 1893 to 1920, when the model designation was changed to Marlin Model '93.
The .30-30 caliber was a "new" smokeless powder, introduced in 1895, so any Model 1893 in .30-30 was made after 1895.
Without more information about your gun that is all that we can tell you at this time.
