Been looking for a 39 for a while but not a "must have" at this point so I can be patient for one with the right price. I saw one in a pawn shop today that was in good shape. Gold trigger, blueing is all good and the wood although not spectacular is void any major scratches or dents. It has an old Weaver (?) small tube scope that would come off right a way. Overall this is a 90% gun in my opinion. What would give for it? JOHN
I would guess that a 90% 39a would bring in the $300.00 range.It would also depend on the age of the gun.I have an all original one in 65%-70% made in 1953.It's pre micro groove and not drilled.I'm having trouble getting $275.00 for this one.I think that folks want a gun they can put a scope on without drilling it.
You might want to check out the price of a new one.
I saw several pristine 39a's at our gun show this last weekend. They were priced at $300-$325, and all were nearly 100%. I'd put a newer 39a in 90% with some handling marks on the wood at $250-$275. I've seen them at this price, or less quite often.

$325-$350 in this area.
