My Great Grandpas Rifle is back out in the field. My Dad handed me down my Great Grandpa's rifle.
It is a Marlin 30-30 with octogan barrel. It has a four digit serial number and was made in 1893. I have carried it hunting with me all rifle season so far. My goal for this year is to harvest a deer with the rifle.
