I recently purchased a 1985 (Serial 15816) Marlin 39A. All of the parts lists I have found show 2 screws on top of the receiver for a scope mount. Mine just has a single set screw. Also, they all show a cross bolt safety, mine doesn't have one. I would really like a pdf of a correct parts list for mine.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Welcome from Alabama...

Your serial number is not right for a 1985 manufacture... It must have an 8 digit serial number... If it does have an 8 digit, post it like this, Serial 1581XXXX... Post up some pics of the rifle...

Also, your other post shows what I think is a 1930's rifle...

Thanks, Scorpiusb. I believe you are correct. On second look I think it is a 1945 rifle (see attached). This is what I would like a parts list for. Not a website, a downloadable pdf. A pdf copy of an original manual would be cool, too.

Thanks.

That's a 1945 39A with a large C. I have a 1946 39A with small c. But I could also have a 1945, since the "c' looks the same.
Just for comparison, here is my Marlin 39A

Wow, Comparing the two, maybe mine is a '46.

Anyone else want to chime in and help us out here?

Here I was thinking it was a G. 1950. Does not really matter though.

Cajun56,

Take a really close look at yours. I have a USB microscope that I used on mine. I now think my letter is a slightly mis-struck G (see attached). Yours might be, too. Also, did you know that part of your serial number is in the receiver (see attached)? I haven't been able to get my stock off to check the other location. The screw is so tight I am afraid I will strip the head. Any suggestions on how to get it loose?
