Model 1893 Disassembly

Post by Jmyers1 » Tue Nov 06, 2018 10:18 am

- Does anybody have access to an exploded parts diagram for the Model 1893? I have a regular parts diagram. Looking for an exploded view.

- In lieu of the above, does anybody have a disassembly guide. This model looks a little different than the 1894 that is out there.

Thanks in advance,
Jim

It's exactly like the 1894. If you've had a '94 apart, you can do an 1893/93.

Thanks for the information. I had never taken down a lever model Marlin until now. Quite impressed with the simple design.

Almost hate to admit this, but back in the 1970's I had a small collection of Winchester Model 1894 rifles. Like others I knew, I thought of Marlins as 2nd behind Winchesters, so didn't even look at them. Then I got into a Model 1893 by accident when I was selling a 1894 SRC in .25-35 and took an 1893 takedown in .25-26M as partial trade in the deal.
Of course I took it home and immediately took it all apart to see the condition, and how it worked. As soon as I saw how ruggedly simple the Hepburn design was I began selling off my small collection of 1894 Winchesters at gun shows, and buying Marlins with the money. Back then I could get 2 and sometimes 3 Marlins for every Winchester I sold, so it was great!
I still own that first 1893 Marlin that started the fire in me for more! Here it is with a Marlin marked mold, tong tool, and ammo for the .25-36M. It's also got a rare Whitney-Kennedy trapdoor buttplate serial numbered to the gun, and Lyman #7 globe, with one of a kind receiver sight.
