    Don't see that many regular 39As locally either. The LGS has a 1950s 39A for sale too---but I passed on that to get the Mountie.

    I hope my wife doesn't take a liking to this one. That is how she got her 22 Mag Marlin Mod 25MN.

    Took the Mountie to the range this afternoon. First shot at 25 yards was ~4 inches low, so I adjusted the rear sight upwards. After that---I was able to get both CCI standard velocity lead bullet 40 gr loads and Winchester standard velocity jacketed HP 40 gr loads to impact IVO the bullseye. At 50 yards, these rounds hit about an inch high. Once I figured that out, I was able to break up some orange clay bird remnants at 50 yards by aiming a little low. If I had a scope on this rifle---those groups would shrink considerably.

    It looks to be in excellent condition. Congratulations on a very nice catch. I regretted my sale to a friend of my 39A which was later stolen. I hunted squirrels with it in the "60s down near you in Gold Vein, Va. I wanted to replace that first 39A, but this next time with a Mountie. One finally turned up in a Northern Virginia pawn shop and I got it for a fair price. Mine was neglected but not abused. Yours seems new. Well done.

    Thanks---if I had good eyes--I could hunt squirrels with this rifle as is. I really don't want to put a scope on it so it will be religated to paper punching.
