Smile Marlin 1896 30-30


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hi,

I am looking for a Marlin 1896 30-30 in good condition. I had one when I was a kid and now, 70 years later, I would like to buy one for "old times sake". Does anyone know where to find one? I have spent hours on the Internet checking every possible source. If not the 1896, an 1893 in 30-30 would be ok. Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome Op.

there were not a lot of them made, and they are expensive today. Even in fair shape figure about $1500+.

Sometimes they are listed as model "96" deleting the century numerals. They were very popular in Canada. Might try there.

Of course you could just get a new model 336 and would be hard pressed to tell the difference.

I have a 93 in fairly good condition I got at one of our local pawn shops for $150. I took it home, cleaned it up and took it to the range. I shoots pretty well and so far hasn't fallen apart. Until I bought this rifle all of my 30-30's were Winchester's except one Savage model 170 pump gun, and two 99 Savage lever actions.

Welcome to the forum, opbroek67 !

There is no such thing a a Marlin Model 1896 .30-30.

The first Marlin levergun, chambered in .30-30, was the Model 1893, which became the Model 93, then later morphed into the Model 1936/Model 36, before the square-bolt design was dropped in favor of the enclosed round bolt in the Model 336 in 1948.

Those were the only Marlins chambered in .30-30..........................

It's entirely possible, however, that someone could have had a Model 1893, made in 1896 - since that model was made up to 1935.
