The smooth straight grip walnut stock and forend are both solid showing numerous old bruises and handling marks under a later added linseed oil finish. The original Marlin hard rubber butt plate is present and in near excellent condition with light use marks. The rifle is sighted with standard folding rear and post front sights with a Lyman No.1 style flip up tang sight. The action functions smoothly. A great early 93 carbine. FFL or C&R
