  1. Need replacement butt plate for my '53 39A (#21)

    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...
  2. 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...
  3. Greetings from CT!

    Welcome New Members
    Recently inherited a '53 39A (24" barrel, Mountie?) and have been trying to find out as much as I can about it (love to know the history of all my firearms). I was fortunate enough to stumble across this community of what appears to be passionate, educated Marlin owners. Hopefully the first of...
  4. 39a Mountie dented magazine tube

    I was given an old Mountie that was found in an abandoned hardware store. It was manufactured in the late 50's. The only problem that is more than cosmetic it a dent in the mag tube. It is a small dent that still allows the inner tube to slide, but makes it a difficult pull and push. I plan to...
  5. Christmas of '75: My Dad's Unconditional Love

    The Campfire Tales
    This is the narrative I wrote a couple of years ago about the Christmas that my dad gave me my first gun, my Marlin Golden 39M. Christmas Morning, 1975 December 25, 1975 was a fairly typical Christmas day with my family. Even though I was 14 years old, Christmas still held a special...
  6. 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...
  7. 39M Lever Question

    Rimfire Teams and 39A Stickies
    Hi, I'm new here (and new to lever guns, period) and I have a quick question. I recently picked up a 1973 Marlin 39M and it seems that the lever is not positioned/lining up with the stock correctly when closed. Any ideas on what could be the cause of this? Or how I could fix it? I'm guessing...
