    MArlin 39A 1952 or 54????

    Hey guys what do you think is a good price on this rifle?
    Most of the blueing is there some freckling and the stock is in good shape just honest use.
    The LGS had it priced at $650

    In my opinion, $650 is way too high. More like $350-$400 for what you describe.

    I thought it seemed like a Gunbroker price...Unusual for this store they typically have the best prices in the area...Maybe I missed something that makes this rifle more valuable...Still learning the Marlin lineage...They also have a '68 336 in 30-30 for $450 which is $100 more than I paid for my '74 from them...

    For this area, that price is at least $250 too high. If you look at the serial, the first letter is the year, for that era gun. Should be a table around on this site for dating them.

    That's funny, because I almost said the same thing in my first reply. I listed 3 rifles (no Marlins) on gunbroker Sunday night and all 3 have bids. Why? Because I started the bidding at my bottom dollar, not my top. I wish all the guys listing run of the mill 39A's for $600+ would get a clue and start the bidding around $300-$350. They will then sell for what they are worth.

    After I bought my 336 from them a few weeks ago and asked on the dates they went through and looked them up...They had it marked as 1952 or 1954 can't remember...Not in my budget at that price...They also had a nice little Winchester 06 pump 22 for $890...My reply...I will take REALLY GOOD care of the one from my Dad that is in better shape...

    I want to find something that I can shoot shorts out of for tree rats etc...Need to get the front sight straightened on my Winchester...It I can do that then the rifle I learned to shoot with will be back in service and I can teach my kids on it.

    I have a 1954 Mountie and a 1962 39a standard rifle and both look like new. $650 is TOO MUCH! for one in the condition you mention. Granted the prices have goon up on these in the past couple of years, but not that much! I have two of these I would less for less than that and mine are both in very fine/excellent condition.

    I just bought a 1958 last week that was in the condition you described and shelled out 375.00. Which I thought was about right (not a great deal, but fair).

    just bought a 1958 for 429 out the door- compared to GB prices I thought that was good. (and it was local)

    Carefull there hans471 . That 54 Mountie was a Ballard riffled one you might be sorry . I think any 54 ,39's should bring a premium being a transition year . A 1954 , ballard ,39A Mountie in darn good condition ,$650.00 is not out of line on it . How many do you see let alone see for sale ? Something to think about.
