I inherited a Marlin 30-30 that was my Great Grandpas rifle.
It has an octagon barrel and a 4 digit serial number, it was made in 1893.
I hope to be able to harvest a deer with it every year in his honor.
Last year I harvested a doe with his rifle. This year I harvested a little 4 point buck. He is probably no trophy to every one else,but it means the world to me to be able to shoot him with my Great Grandpas rifle.

Here is a pic of my Great Grandpa with the rifle that was handed down to me. My Great Grandpa is standing up on the drivers side with his hand on his buck.





Here is a pic of the 4 point I harvested with the old 30-30.

That gun looks remarkable for a 100 year old gun. What a great tradition you have.

A treasure. Don't let it get out of the family.
