Came across a 30/30 Model 99 today with A serial number

Don't know what year model it was but it was fairly nice for it's age. Old bluing had dulled down and wood had a few scratches but overall was nice old rifle. It had a $999.00 price tag on it which is why I don't own it.

Since when does a Marlin model 99 30/30 lever action rifle fit in the Savage area.

OK so my mind is playing tricks on me again. That's no surprise to me but what did I see. It was defiantly a Marlin lever 30/30 with a straight stock, curved metal butt plate and had a seial number on the bottom that started with an A.

For a short time Marlin did make barrels for The Savage Model 1895,the barrels are "JM" marked... look on page 627-628 in the Brophy Book

Desperado, you saw a Marlin lever action with an A1400 serial number, a post take-over gun most likely made sometime after WWI.
Go back and look at it again. You'll find it's marked Model 93...

By the way, A1400 does not come near anything in Savage's serial numbering of the 1899/99 rifles.
