    39A Scope mounting suggestions

    Too make a long story short I've been wanting a model 39A for a long time but I never found one for a decent price in decent condition until last week. I ran across a guy with one that was looking to part ways with it for a reasonable price and the gun needed cleaning but otherwise in good shape. So I'm now the owner of a 39A ... Well I got up Saturday morning and took the wife and son shopping for a few things the wife wanted (I had planned to go hunting but thats another story) so I took the opportunity to look for a scope base for the little 39. We were planning to go shooting later in the day so I figured if I could get the base (I already have the scope) I could get it dialed in that afternoon and everything would be great. Anyway, 75 miles and 4 hours later I had what I was told was the bases for the rifle. I ended up at a shop I deal with alot that has good qualified people working at it so I did not pay much attention to the packages until I got home (mistake).

    To make this already long story shorter, what do ya'll recommend for a good scope base?

    I got mine from Numrich as Marlin-branded parts, it's called the two-step version, has 3/8" rail on top of a Weaver, so can use both types of rings. If you want the lowest profile, you get just the early version which is a 3/8" rail. My 39 came with one of those and a cheapie pencil scope. Numrich supplied them in factory packaging with the screws. Put the plug screws in a small zip-lock, they run [email protected] to replace. If the butt has a hole under the plate, I usually stuff it in there.

    I think the last ones that came with a scope base used aluminum Weavers? Earlier ones came with a steel base similar to Weavers but for narrower dovetail.

    Re: 39A Scope mounting suggestions

    Thanks guys! I found a Marlin base, screws, and hammer spur at Midway USA for $23... A little pricey but it will be original and I needed the hammer spur anyway. I hope to get it by this weekend so I can get it setup and hopefully bag a couple of squirrels.

    Re: 39A Scope mounting suggestions

    Be aware that there has been several changes to hammers over the years, the current hammer extensions don't fit old models. Found that out when I lost the set screw to my 1953 39A's hammer extension. I was just going to replace it with a new extension, but the off the peg ones didn't fit. So I hunted down that tiny screw.

    Re: 39A Scope mounting suggestions

    Well I received the base and extension yesterday and installed it last night. Everything went on without a hitch until I i got to the part of mounting the scope ... that stupid little 3/8 dovetail for .22 scope mounts does not allow standard Weaver rings to sit correctly on the rail. I guess I will go ahead and mount to the 3/8 dovetail but I will eventually change it back to the weaver bases after I have a chance to either modify the base or a set of rings ... I'll try to post some pictures soon!

    If it's the original Marlin base, the outside edge takes standard 1" rings, the inside takes the small 22 mounts.

    Go out to your LGS or big box store and get the Weaver and be done with it. It'll let your rings mount and it's only $8.
