    Rimfire Teams and 39A Stickies
    Butt plate was cracked for a bit and finally gave up and I'm having trouble finding a replacement. Back side is numbered 21 39445. I reached out Bob from Bob's Gun Shop and he didn't know where to find one. I only seem to see #6's in reproduction. Numrich seems to have a few listed but I'm not...

  3. Two Md 39As Questions

    Rimfire Teams and 39A Stickies
    I have a 39A with an MR serial number It feeds well with proofing dummys but I does not seem to like Federal Premium or CCI standard velocity. The bullet come up on the carrier but the base rises to the top of the reciever and I have to reach in with a tool to get it out of the rifle or where...
  4. Tru Oil or Linseed?

    Repairing Your Guns
    I want to do a little work on a 1982 39A. The gun is in fine shape, but I want to make the wood a little nicer. I want to sand it down to bare wood and refinish it, but I'm not too sure how to go about it. I like the Linseed oil but I'm not sure if I want to go that dark on it, and I think the...

    Marlin Collectors
    So a friend wanted to go to the shop today to get a tactical shotgun and as we were leaving I saw a 39A on the shelf and tried to walk away...two hours later I was back to buy it. I just bought a Ruger American a week ago, and NYC's laws require a 90 day period between registrations so I need to...

    What are the differences between the 39A and 39M mountie models? Is there anything that makes them distinct from each other?
  8. Mountie & 1892 to the range

    Rimfire Teams and 39A Stickies
    Had the opportunity to take the 57 Mountie & the 1899-1892 to the range yesterday. Limited the 92 to the 50 yard line due to iron sights and old eyes. Both 50&100 yard mark for the unmarked 39A Mountie old Weaver 4x. Not to bad free-handed from either. I enjoy being able to test the...

    Rimfires
    I lost 23 firearms in a house fire. I had a Marlin 39M without the gold trigger. My dad purchased the rifle for me sometime around 1979 ish. I cannot find any without the gold trigger and someone told me they made a few of these without the gold trigger. Can someone enlighten me on the history...

  14. 39A Stock Carvings Deer ans Squirrel

    Rimfire Teams and 39A Stickies
    I just recently traded for this 39A Serial Number N138XX. I have been reading they may be aftermarket carvings and it depreciates the value... To tell you the truth I love this rifle, it shoots perfect, I love the carvings (they are what drew me to the rifle in the first place) and I just want...
  15. 39A misfiring

    Welcome New Members
    I just got my first Marlin (Golden 39A) and have issues with it firing consistently (every 3rd or 4th round does not fire). I checked the ammo in a Ruger 22 and it fired every single time, so I don't think it is the ammo. The imprint of the firing pin on the cartridge that did not go off looks...

    Took our son, his girlfriend & my BIL to the range this morning in beautiful, warm Florida (think it was around 71 degrees & sunny).

  19. 39A Year of Mfg on a surprise Mountie

    Marlin Years of Manufacture
    Hi first post, as I just bought a 39A (after looking for a long time) yesterday. The LGS I bought it from said it was a 80's era 39a and when I saw the condition was 90% or better, so I jumped on it without too much research. Now it didn't hit me until I was putting it in the safe that the...
  20. Marlin 39A Article II

    Rimfires
    I have quite a few guns, and before yesterday no Marlins at all. I was on a local trading website in Indiana and saw a Marlin Article II pop up , advertised "New in Box". One thing led to another and now I own my First Marlin. I am super picky on guns , and this does not have the first...
