I have a 39 A Golden with a 20 inch barrel and pistol grip stock. The gun is in excellent condition and shoot great. How rare is this gun and what is it worth? The rifle it is just like a full size 39 A except for the short barrel. It was made in 1978. OBTW the barrel is not marked as a Take Down.

What does it say on the barrel. The barrel could have been replayed or a replacement stock. I thought the 39 Carbine and Mountie were the only ones made with a 20" barrel but they made these for a lot of years and models and I know very little. Someone may come along with more knowledge while you are getting us some pictures. :)

If barrel is marked 39a and was made in 1978 it has been shortened.

Sorry but I can not figure out how to load pics on this forum. The barrel marking are the same as the full size 39A, No Mountie, NO Take down etc. Just the standard marking.

If someone cut the barrel down they went to a lot of work. My gunsmith said the crown was exactly like the factory, the magazine holder would have to be recut into the barrel, the magazine would have to been shortened.......... Seem like a lot of work and $$ to me.

Well it will be hard to solve by people here if you can't post picture or even type the words on the barrel.

How sure are you of the year of manufacture? 1970-71 they manufactured exactly what you are describing as the 39 D. If the gun has spacer and cap on the pistol grip, I would be interested in buying it regardless of year of manufacture.:biggrin:
