Got a line on 2, one is straight stock and has wood to my liking and the other is a pistol grip stock, both on a live auction, what would you go up to?

    The one with the straight stock is probably a 39M, more valuable. It depends on how much you want them. I've seen them on GB for $700, but don't know if they sold for that.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    Yep, I am not sure how high to go, thanks Gene

    I can't help with the 39's but that Winnie looks sweet.

    I will get some better pics and some research done on the serial # when I get it.

    You dawg! You stole it! :up: From the general look of it in the picture it's an older model. That should make some smiles when you get your hands on it and shoot it!

    The Winchester model 62 went for $2300, the other Winchester 61 went for $1100. The pistol grip Marlin 39 went for $375.

    You'll love that thing. A couple of years ago, I thought about selling my 39a to fund something else. Glad I didn't. I wouldn't have sold it for those prices. It's worth more than that to me. I bought mine 20 years ago for $100.

    You done good! I passed on a pristine '70's model a few years ago. They wanted $700, and I actually considered it, for a while.

    I believe mines a 1966 based on the serial number. I asked $700 for it and got no bites. I wanted to keep it anyway.

    Oh there's some mighty purdy guns in those pics besides the target specimens. Is that a 700 ADL on the left of the straight stocked 39A? It's beautiful, and those other guns in the right hand pic are just delicious looking. The one on the far right of the right picture is a Model 42 Winchester. Now THAT is my HOLY GRAIL gun.

    But you did well. I love that straight stock Marlin.

    But I'm calling the Police, cause you Stole the damn thing.

    Thanks guys, kind of a sad deal actually, it was an estate sale and the Gma had one of the daughters whispering in her ear, ALL of those guns should have gone to the kids and grandkids, one Grandson had to bid $650 for his Gpas Model 12 Trap gun, the Gpa allowed my son #1 to shoot his first deer out of his stand, I wanted one of his guns just because I know the family so well, I would give it up if one of the Grandsons wanted it off me, as it is, Son #1 has one in the safe to remember the guy that helped him shoot his first deer.

    That is a sad deal... I'm hoping I get my guns to the right people ahead of time. Doesn't matter if it's family. More a out use .

    There is a reason I like you

    There was a white dealer demo Farmall that went, fairly rare tractor, I hope that went well at the auction, better places to sell some this stuff than a farm auction, I tried to talk to the kids I know, they said it was not their deal and out of their hands, definite come to Jesus moment down the road for the one sister.

    Great price on a great rifle! You done good. You suck too!
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.
  • AntonioAntonio Senior Member Posts: 2,612 Senior Member
    Indeed; the only reason I've held myself from buying a 39A is the (for me) unnatural pistol grip in a lever action rifle. Sadly 39Ms are nowhere to be found here.
  • CHIRO1989CHIRO1989 Senior Member Posts: 12,262 Senior Member
    Well, I got it in my hands, made in 1958 and it is a Golden Mountie, I like it even more now that it got to shoulder it and cycle it. It came with a sling that is embossed with a hunters horn and the brand name "Hunter" overlayed on the horn, anybody know anything about the sling?

    Hunter is a brand name, they are still in business. The older stuff is much better quality than the new stuff.

    I found what I thought was the company but no slings matching the one on the rifle, curious to see if it is the same age as the rifle.

    I would imagine so. People did that back then. They tended to buy a good quality item once instead of cheap plastic throwaway stuff continuously.

    Hunter gun leather has been in business for quite some time. they used to be located in Westminster, Colo. (Just looked, they are still there and have been in business since 1952)
    Back in the 80's I worked not far from them and one of the nearby LGS's had an annual sidwalk sale featuring hunters seconds and returns. Got some decent leather at very nice prices.

    Yep, that is what I saw online, I was hoping the sling was collectible also. I think the holster I got my dad for his Trooper is a hunter, have to check that over the 4th.
