    39a Article II ** Now with Pictures **

    I have an opportunity to purchase a model 39A that is in almost like-new condition. It does not have a box or paper work. The serial number has a prefix '71', indicating manufacture in 1971 (I believe).

    The rifle is full length with octagon barrel. Pistol grip stock. It has an emblem on the receiver and is roll stamped Article II on the barrel.

    My interest in it is the octagon barrel. The wood is 98% and the bluing is 99%.

    The guy wants $425 for it.

    Is that an acceptable price to pay for this rifle What do new model 39 rifles sell for (assuming one could be found)

    Thanks for your help.

    Sounds like a screaming deal to me. There were 6,265 Article II rifles made in 1971.

    Re: 39a Article II

    Where do you find people selling stuff like that at those prices?

    That rifle would go for over twice that on Gunbroker.

    BUY IT! If you don't want it I'll buy it from you! I got a 39a Article II with a straight stock. It was one of my first Marlin levers and by far the one I can shoot the best with stock sights.
