Maker: Barrel is marked “Marlin Fire-Arms Co. - New Haven, Ct. USA.” Approx. Age: 1890 (according to the serial #). Size: Approx. .32 - 20 cal., with a 20” barrel and a 15” tube. It’s 37.5” long overall. Condition: Fair. It seems pretty tight and everything appears to function. Additional Info: According to an article by gun expert, Phil Spangler, “Standard ’89 Marlin rifles included a 24-inch octagonal or round barrel… Standard carbines had 20-inch tubes, while around 300-plus were made with a 15-inch version.” This is one of those special order 20” barrels with the more rare, 15” tube.
