I liberated the Marlin 39a I had rat holed at my LGS today! It has some love marks and a spot of blueing rubbed off, but I don't care it's a field gun. This way I won't be afraid to use it. I just fell in love with this ones stock. Beautiful, just beautiful. I though I grabbed the correct front sight base from my Dad the other week but it turned out I didnot. Oh well, that's what EBay is for right? I'm going to give it a good cleaning and rub it down with some good oil and enjoy the hell out of this little rifle.



Oh for you inquiring minds, $340 OTD....
Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Beautiful wood on that one! They are just way too much fun to be safe queens. Rabbits and skwirrels are in danger when you have one of those. And that's an excellent price for that rifle; you got a bargain!

    I have yet to see a 39 shoot poorly.

    I have another 39a that is a killer, plain and simple. I expect this one to be the same. If it had all its parts (sights) I'm sure it would have been more.

    That is a good point, I had not thought of it that way, nice find, can't shoot mine until next week.

    I need a front sight for mine. I think I'm going to scope this one. I have an older steel tube weaver marksman 4x that is going to be perfect on this rifle.

    Nice Marlin; you can never have too many .22LR rifles.
    Other than the pistol grip, the other thing I consider "odd" about this rifle is that the noise of the hammer hitting the chambered round is pretty much as loud as the detonation.....talk about a rimfire rifle built like a train!

    Range report please...
