    Marlin 39Carbine

    Hi all, I have a Marlin 39 Carbine 22, with SN- Z65xx. It has a squirrel carved on the stock, round barrel, and the chamber tube is 3” shorter than the barrel. Anyone know what year and any other info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I don't believe the stock carving is factory. The 39 carbine is pretty rare and desirable. I'm still looking for one, Never seen one in person.

    I’ve been told this was a collector edition and only about500 were made, ive been trying to verify this.
    Thanks for the reply.

    The 39 carbine is rare enough as it is without adding a collector's edition into the equation, anywho I can find no pictures or mention of a collector's edition online but I'm sure you already knew that.
    From a brief check online it looks like the carbine was made from 1963 until 1967.

    The fact that the carving oval is not symmetrical leads me to believe it was not done at the factory.

    The 1960 90th anniversary edition had a run of 500 and had a squirrel carved into the stock in a round relief and is about 1/3rd the size of yours...

    Page 278 and 279 of Brophys...

    They also made a Model 39ADL in 1963 with the same carving...

    The carbine will not be seen for sale often because most that own one will keep it. Here is some numbers 1963--(1475)---1964-- (2399)---1965--(2400)--1966--(1101)---1967--(1032)
    In 1968 my list shows no carbines were made then in 1969 it shows 1201 were made and had a 69 at the beginning of the serial number instead of a letter.
