TO DISMOUNT THE ARM.
'fake out the tang screw and removethe butt stock. Swing the main spring to one side, thus removing all pressure from the hammer screw ; take out the hammer screw and remove the hammer. Remove the lever screw and lever, the breech bolt can then be drawn out. 'I'ake out the trigger plate screw at the front of the trig-ger plate. when the trigger plate and locking bolt may be removed. As all of these screws have practically the same size head, it will be observed that a single screw-driver is the only tool necessary to dismount the rifle conveniently. lf desired, the carrier and likewise the loading spring cover may be removed, as the screws holding these are on the right side of the ac tion.
To TAKE APART THE BREECH noi.T.

It is necessary merely to takeout the magazine tube stud screw and thetwo forearm tip screu-s. The entire magazine, forearm tip and forearm can then be removed.
The Marlin repeater, model 1893 is exactly the same in principle as the model 1894-, being merely the same action adapted to the larger cartridges. The mod0 1893 was devised from the model 1889. Several important im provemeats were introduced which were found to be so thoroughly advan tageous, that they were in turn incorporated into the model 1889, which in consequence became the model 1894. The description of the action of the
model 1894 applies equally well to the model 1803, as the two actions are identical except in size of parts. This model was originally made to take the well known and popular cartridges, 32-10-165 and 38-55-255. These cart ridges as regardsaccuracy occupy a commanding position. They are probably the best all-round cartridges for hunting and target purposes. THE NIARIIN FIB!: ABMS COMPANY origMated these two cartridges and their experience in inn king fine Ballard target rifles for these cartridges justifies us in claiming that this repeater is unsurpassed ill accuracy by any repeating arm made. The barrels are exaet ly the same as those used by them in the finest Ballard targ,et rifles. This rifle is also adapted to take the 25-36 smokeless and the 3o-::0 smokeless eartridges which have been recently brought out and are ex tremely popular, as well as valuable cartridges for hunting purposes. This rifle, like those of all the other models, can be used as a single breech-loader with the greatest facility. In so using it, the cartridge is dropped into the receiver, ahead of the breech bolt when the action is open, and then when the breech bolt is closed, the gun is loaded and ready for firing. It can be so used with great rapidity. In ca.se it is desired to hold the magazine in reserve, while constantly shooting, it is merely necessary to load cartridges into the magazine through the side loading spring cover, as fast as one is chambered.
Since the action is the same for all four of these cartridges, (the barrel alone being different, ) take down rifle can be obtained, and with extra barrel parts, there will be five rifles using cartridges var.ving from 25 to 38 caliber. In the case of a, rigid repeater any one of these barrels can be fitted if a change is desired.
