    Marlin Model 39A Serial Number

    Hey everyone I am new to the site. I have a one owner, (my Dad bought it "new" right after WW2), 39A in really good condition that I inherited. I have fired it some and it is as accurate as I can get with the original sights. It does not have the pre-drilled and tapped holes for the scope mount and I was wondering if there is anything that I can do without having the holes drilled and tapped on the top of the reciever to mount a scope. Different type of sights...maybe?

    I learned how to shoot on this rifle and have recently taken up shooting again after thirty-five years. The serial number is C 103XX, (it was suggested that I not give the entire serial number), and the C could be lower case. Not from being worn, it just looks smaller than the numbers and there is a space between the letter and the numbers. It is really in amazing shape. It has been, (and still is), maintained very well over the years with just some wear and marks on the inside from being fired. No rust at all! Barrel is immaculate!

    Any ideas for sights or a date of manufacture would be great.
