I have had a Model 39M Article II w/ octagon barrel since 1971 (when I was 11 years old). I never thought of selling it, but I haven't shot it since maybe 1972. It's a beauty, but I would consider letting it go to someone who would use it, if the price was right. Does anyone have any interest? First time posting. By the way, I worked at Marlin in the mid 80's in North Haven, CT. Glad to see there's a forum for Marlin firearms.
