Our Assessment: This is a nearly new Marlin Lever Action Rifle in one of the most iconic calibers of all time. The octagonal barrel is great, who wouldn’t rather have an octagonal…? The condition is superb. This is the gun you need for your North American Hunting trips, for cowboy long range or just because you don’t have one already.
