    What's the trade? I'd probably jump all over that for the right trade/price.

    Those are really cool 22's IMO. Pricey too.

    I'd grab it for sure for a good price.

    On the high side my trade would be worth maybe $500 or so...nothing rare, easily and readily replaceable.

    Here's another pic. Opinons, I know y'all got 'em.

    I pulled it up on my 2010 Book of Gun Values......

    It was first, and only made in 1971. Then it was reintroduced in 1973, but without the white spacers on the grip cap and stock.

    Exc. $450. VG $325.

    Thanks jbohio, now I know the 1969 part is misinformation, but the owner did say that was only a guess.

    Gunbroker closed auctions run from primarily in the $500 range up to upper $600 range for nice ones. I can look and walk away if something isn't right in person.

    The classic 39's aren't getting any easier to find, jbohio's blue-book quote seems about spot-on. That one, from the pics, looks to be in "excellent" shape, and worth every bit of the $450 quote, even trading for a $500 value wouldn't be out of line. If it were me, and that possibility came up, I'd probably jump on it.

    Me too. I'd do the trade.

    I know nothing about the 39d, but I've got a 39a that I LOVE. Great rifle. The 39d pictured here looks like it's in great shape. Much better than my 39a.

    Mine hanging out with the Win 94's. Pic's a little small, but that's all I've got right now.

    I presume by the size of the magazine tube that it's a 22. I really want a 22 lever gun myself. I say jump on it.

    I got her today and man is she sweet... can't wait to hit the range. This thing has never had a screw turned and has never been taken down. Only a couple real small handling marks and one tiny speck on the receiver. I've had several Marlin centerfire levers in various models, but this is my first rimfire. The sound that the hammer makes when you cock it is like music--very distinctive and "different".

    Good deal. I love my 39A Golden. Bought it, NIB, for $169.95 in the late 70's. The new ones wholesale for over $500. I think they ruined the 39's, when they added the cross-bolt safety.......damn lawyers.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270

    While I have not heard of a 39D, I have a 39M that has harvested enough squirrels to fill a domp truck. You will be pleased.....Robin

    39D was a "Mountie" 39M with a pistol grip stock. I love my Mounties 20" barrels, just feel better than the rifle length.

    If you like a pistol grip lever gun, I'd do the trade.......might be a while before you see another in that condition.

    Locking this thread because it was an old one that a new member dug up to try to sell a gun. I'm leaving it here in case he actually wants to be a member and returns and wants to know why it's locked but if I get no response in a day or so he's getting banned.
