    Re: 39a Article II

    I know I risk Hal saying I'm not a "real" Marlin guy, but I'm gonna ask anyway. What is so special about an Article II, this is the first I've ever heard of one.

    Re: 39a Article II

    The 39A and 39M Article IIís were made to commemorate 100 years of the NRA in 1971. I assume Article II refers to the second amendment to the constitution. They have a medallion on the side of the receiver. The fore-hand cap and the crescent butt plate are brass . They have an octagon barrel. They are very similar to the Century limited. The difference is there were only 6,265 39A Article IIís and 3,824 39M Article IIís where there were 34,197 Century Limitedís.

    Were the Century Limited and Article II rifles made at ABOUT the same time Was the Century the first octagon in modern times and the Article II the second

    Re: 39a Article II

    Yes the Century Limited was made in 1970 and the Article II's in 1971. Then in 1972 they made the 39M Octagon and the 39A Octagon. There were 2,551 39A Octagons and 2,140 39M Octagons. The next Octagons were the 1897's made in the late 1990 to early 2000's.

    Re: 39a Article II

    I thought the octagonals were made in 1973?

    I looked it up in the 1973 catalog, There was a 24" uncheckered pistol grip Marlin 39A Octagon, a 20" uncheckered straight stock Marlin 39M Octagon (I have one), a 22" uncheckered straight stock 30-30 Marlin 336 Octagon (Wish I had one), a 22" uncheckered straight stock 44 Magnum Marlin 1894 Octagon, along with the Marlin Zane Grey Century 30/30 and Marlin 39 Century Ltd. Those Century's where $150.00 and $125.00 respectively.
    The 1974 catalog shows no octagons. The 1972 shows the Marlin 39A Article II 24" uncheckered pistol grip brass forend cap and curved buttplate. It shows the two Century models.

    Re: 39a Article II

    I didn't mean to start a land rush. Yes,I bought the rifle. Don't yet have it in hand yet.

    My main reason for asking you guys about the rifle is that the price seemed almost too good to be true. I thought I should ask on the possibility that there was something negative about this particular model.

    I have a Mountie and have always wished I had gotten a 39 cowboy back when the were available. I think the octagon barrel is the bee's knees on the 39.

    Thanks for helping me to learn more about the model 39.
