The Marlin Model 1893 is a lever action rifle that was produced by Marlin Firearms. It differed from the Winchester in that it was side-ejecting, the main selling point originally being it was better protected from weather and debris than the competing top-ejecting Winchester. Marlin would later convert the 1893 from square bolt to round bolt with side ejection port as the Model 336, with the selling point becoming ease of scope sight mounting. The Marlin 1893 (and later 336C) directly competed with the Winchester 1894 rifle. It was produced from 1893 to 1936.
