Marlin 1893 Receiver size

Post by Uechi »

I know that the carrier varies dependent on caliber but does the receiver size also change or is it universal whether it is 32-40,38-55 or 30-30? I have all parts for an 1893 except the receiver which I bought on Gun Broker. I know all the parts came off a 32-40 except don’t know about receiver.

All 1893/93 receivers are the exact same size. Pistol grip and straight grip also. Just a different lower triggerplate for pistol grip vs. straight grip.
Marlin lever actions 1870's-WWI, Ballards, and single shot rifles!

Marlin even advertised that one takedown action could handle all the calibers of the Model 1893 so as to have one receiver action and multiple barrels in different lengths and calibers if so desired.
There is one difference between early actions and later, smokeless powder actions. After the smokeless powders came out, Marlin added a trigger support screw in the left side of the receiver.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there will be no warning shot!
