    A good not expensive Marlin Lever action .22?

    What is a good not too expensive Marlin Lever Action in .22LR ? I want a lever action in .22lr that I can buy used or new that wont hurt my wallet too much. Something under $300 . I hear good things about the 39A but they are all way expensive where I live in Tn . I dont mind buying used , in fact I like buying used guns in good condition.

    No such thing, unless you find someone that does not know what they have. If you want a cheap one, try a Henry. they are ok, but not the rifle that the 39 is.

    I think I paid $369.00 back in 2006 for mine new, and it was a 2004 YOM. Finding a 39 even used for under 3 bills would be a major stroke of luck! New ones today are upwards of $500.00, and of course with Remington in control of things I can't say the a new 39 is still as good as the original Marlin 39, or that the price will go even higher. From my understanding they are very labor intensive to make, but then again you know you've got yourself a very nice .22 Lever that a lot of people desire to have. You might find something...but chances are it's going to need a mountain of work to make it work/ be nice again, unless you yourself are just going to throw it into the back of a truck for an occasional shot at something. Just my 0.02 worth. Mr fixit

    I was in the same boat as O.P. The going rate seems to be around $450 for a heavily used 39A. Expect some rust, maybe some missing/bent parts, but not a project gun by any means. Nice, almost new specimens run $50 to $100 more depending on who is selling it. 39M's tend to run an additional $100 more. Condition and how bad the seller wants to move said rifle mean everything. Keep your eyes open for one in the classifieds here. That's where I got mine and it seems M.O. members take a little better care of our favorite rifles.

    I know it hurts...just get out your wallet and "buy once, cry once."

    WOW! I didnt know they cost that much . Well I kept trying for several months and scored 2 good old Marlin 336's one from 1965 and the other from 1955 so I'll try the same like I did for them.

    I paid over $500 for a 39M - always wanted one and took the Marlinitis plunge - and have no regrets. A 1975 model in vg cond. No more to be made by the craftsmen in North haven. Seems odd the .22's are so expensive when a 336 30-30 in great shape might go for 1/2 of that price. I cannot explain why....anybody can help explain?

    Down in my part of the country, 336's can be found anywhere from $250-$350 most any day, some people ask more but seldom recieve it. Model 39's are plentiful but very seldom seen on the regional market even well worn ones, but those few that do pop up command a BIG price and they usually bring it too.

    I understand that....Last weekend in Jan. was a very very small gun show 65 miles away... I took the ride up that way... Seen 4 . 39A's 3 used all between 450-550.... Found 1 NIB ( box in bad shape) an 2006 JM.. Guy wanted 600.00 for it... we talked awhile, I left , came back 3 different times, last time he asked if I had other Marlins.. yep about 6 .. He said well I guess you know a good one when you see it huh?? Yep... He asked are you going to put it in a cabinet and take it out once a year or are you going to shoot it.... Told him I shoot all my guns..... He said ... well since you do that what about 500 then........... SOLD........ It almost shoots as good as my Anschutz 1710.... but Anschutz is a 1950.00 gun..... Buy the 39 A........

    tercel, you can also look at gunbroker, auctionarms, and Guns america, I'm sure there are more but those are the 3 I know of. Good luck in your hunt and I hope you find "the" one. Mr fixit
