    The owner of this well-used (but good condition) Marlin 39A decided he wanted to update and modernize it and add optics as well. He chose the Grizzly Custom Backpacker Lite Scout package, but with a few modifications.

    grizzly_custom_guns_marlin_39a_backpacker_lite_scout_before_pz_1000.jpg

    The standard BackPacker "Lite" Scout package includes: Shorten barrel to 16.25"
    Recrown barrel with an 11° target crown
    Relocate front magazine tube support dovetail
    Shorten inner magazine tube
    Shorten outer magazine tube
    Modify outer magazine tube for cap retention
    Shorten magazine tube spring
    Custom rear sight, adjustable for windage & elevation
    Custom ramped front sight, including replaceable insert
    Premium quality dovetail fill to replace factory rear sight
    Mill dovetail slots in barrel for Scout scope mounts
    Leupold fixed 2.5x Scout scope
    Talley QD scope rings (medium to clear rear sight)
    Custom enlarged lever loop, if desired
    Complete action dehorning
    Smooth loading & ejection ports, inside and out
    Modify loading gate for easier loading
    Extensive action smoothing
    Trigger job on factory components
    Bobbed hammer
    Bed stocks
    Pachmayr Decelerator short recoil pad @ 13" LOP
    Custom padded “Slimline” leather sling
    GrovTec “Made in USA” sling swivels
    Satin matte metal prep
    Cerakote finish in satin black
    Test ammunition
    Test fired & sighted-in
    Refinished walnut stock set (older smooth stocks only, no checkering)

    He chose these modifications:
    Leave the barrel and magazine tube at factory length
    Upgrade the Scout scope from 2.5x fixed to 1.5-4x variable
    Fill the hole left by the removal of the previous tang sight

    The finished product is an excellent example of a beautiful custom Marlin 39A.
