This is an early Model 1893 Marlin Sporting Rifle in caliber 38-55. with extra long 28” octagon barrel and is not marked,  “For Black Powder” nor ”Special Smokeless Steel". Serial number is 101702 which makes it an antique of 1894 production. The sights include, this early Winchester Mid-Rang Vernier Tang Sight with the thick base plate. It's in excellent shape with no problems or damage and blue overall and the globe front sight is likewise. Top of barrel marked "38-55" with Marlin address and 1887, '89, and '93 patent dates. I have not removed the tang sight but, I assume it denotes "Model 1893". The 38-55 is an all-around great calibers for both hunting and target shooting in their original black powder loads. The bore is bright and shiny as new. This is an "A" grade rifle, a very nice example! Overall, NRA Antique Fine+ Condition. Barrel, magazine tube, and forend cap retain 95% original blue. The frame shows 75% faded colors on the right side and around 40% on the left side. Bolt has about 60% faded colors. Top of the frame is marked "Marlin Safety" and shows smoky shadows of mottled colors. Lever retains 10% colors while the hammer has fared a little better with 70% faded colors. Loading port has 75% bright original blue. The original walnut stocks are in Fine condition showing only light handling marks with perfect wood to metal fit and 95% original varnish. No chips, cracks, or repairs. Action is still nice and smooth with an Excellent bore. A very clean example of a Marlin 1893 in a great configuration and caliber.
