    Found my first Mountie......

    Traded into this 1958/1959 20 inch barreled Mod 39A Mountie this afternoon at the LGS. First Mountie that I have ever seen in person. It has the wrong front sight hood on it--will have to look into getting the correct pre-1973 round model. It also has the old flat hammer extension with the JM proof mark---kinda nice seeing that on a '50s Marlin. I hope to get this rifle to the range this week if my work schedule allows that.

    My first Marlin is a Mountie. (New in '7

    I wanted a quality, forged steel and walnut gun that could shoot LR, Longs, and shorts and I got exactly that with the Golden 39M. I have my Browning Semi auto TD for its LR stuff.

    My first Marlin was a 1985 Model 30AS that has taken quite a few deer by me and my son. I gave it to sonny boy back in 1997--his first very deer rifle which started off his Marlinitis as it did for me.

    Great find!
    As you might know, I searched all over the country for one for my wife. Used it today to win a match!
    You will love it!

    This rifle is in very nice condition--probably spent a lot of its past in a closet or gun safe.
