Default Marlin lever action-hex barrel in .25x36 cal

Just thought you folks might like to see a .25x36 Marlin Lever action with the octagon barrel. Came down to me from my Grandfather and has been in the family that long. It has 1893 on the barrel and when checking the serial number, I think it was manufactured in 1903. I use the Winchester .25x35 shells in it and also shot my first deer with it.

Boy I was ready to call BS on you till I did a google search.

25-36 is very close to the 25-35 winchester.

That is a fine looking marlin you got there. In my eyes they were always superior to winchester's lever guns.

Take good care of the old girl. Holding her is like holding a piece of history. She has an octagon barrel right?

I feel the same way about the piece of history. I think I may have said a hex barrel, but, yes, is an
octagon barrel. Actually had to take another look, lol!! And, it has a 10 shot tubular magazine under the barrel and which you can see the end in the photo.

Hope you can tell from the photo, and I just wanted you to see this combination front sight...swivels from ivory bead to circle with dot on post.........

Thanks for responding........and being honest....if it had been me, I would have blurted it out and not have an opportunity to retract my comment. I always called it a .25x35, too, since that was the ammo we used, 'til I stopped one day and took a look at it. The lever action does seem to have a tighter closing mechanism than the Winchester. And, I like being able to carry a half box of shells in the tube, lol!!

PS: Here's a photo of the rear sight........the bar has a white pyramid (to match the ivory front sight for evening shooting, I always thought) and the other will be a buckhorn type when pulled up.

Default I have a 25-36

I do not have the information about my Marlin 25-36 with me, but I will post it next week.

It has a round barrel. I have 3 25-36 rounds left from my grandfather. My grandfather loaned the gun to me for my first dear hunt (I was 14 at the time). After the first hunt ended granddad gave me the gun. I am now 70 and the last time it was fired I was 18.

I may try some 25-35 ---will think about it.

It is good to find someone who has one.
