    Got any pictures?
    Marlin produced several different 22LR lever actions with an octagon barrel.

    The Marlin Mdl. of 1888 is the ultra-rare top ejecting lever action. There were only about 4,100 made 1888-1890. They were chambered in the 44-40, 38-40 etc. The Marlin 39 action first appeared in the Mdl. 1891 .22 rim-fire this was Marlins first and best .22 lever action rifle.:)

    That is a rifle put out by the Page-Lewis Arms Co., which was manufactured by Stevens & its worth what ever someone will pay for it, I have been offered $1000.00 for my Stevens Favorite & turned it down, a couple more 00 & I might think about it..............

    WHy should we play guess how old is my rifle when you can just call marlin. All firearms manufacturers have an archivist. Call Marlin to see exactly what you have and what it might be worth.

    well it's not like anyone here on the forum would actually have any knowledge about an old gun.

    i'd rather discuss guns with people who actually have an interest in old guns myself.

    ummmm....the remark wasn't directed at you. and i hope you are just confused with who to direct your assinine comments to.

    but if they are directed at me, i wish you luck in getting any help from most of the members here. most of them don't care for rude and thoughtless people.

    i will give you the benefit of the doubt and allow you to explain your remarks or apologise for them is you so choose to.
