I recently bought an 1981 39A with a Williams peep sight on it for $549.00. It's in as new condition with little to no wear on any of the moving parts. I feel this was a good buy for a quality built gun. There is no way I would buy any 39A's built after 1988 when they added the saftey and rebounding crap. I shoot cowboy silhouette and these newer guns are always having problems on the firing line.
You made a good buy in my book. Al Foust
You hit the nail on the head about those post 1988 models. I have one and it is a problem child. I am one of those guys you speak of on the silhouette line trying to get the thing to run. My 1980 mountie works all the time with everything.
I pulled the trigger on this deal. It works all the time and is as accurate as I expected it to be. Yall talked me into it,(as if that was hard). These good 39s are getting harder to find; passing one up at any reasonable price is a mistake. Appreciate the opinons,(more so as they match my own).
