I just saw a Marlin 39A Octagon .22 lever gun on Gun Broker for sale. No, NOT a 39M Octagon, but a 39A Octagon. I never knew Marlin made such a rifle? I would love to own it but it has 3 days left on the auction an is already at $712.00. I imagine it will go for a little less than $2000.00 when all is said and done. Beyond my means none the less. Anyway...does anyone know the history of the 39A Octagon series?
