Nice find, I have an early 80's and really like it.
You did good. I have a 1965 model and I wouldn't trade it for a 30/30 even if I got a lot and I do mean a lot of boot. It should cost more than a 30/30 and if this is the first 39A you have owned, you will feel that way soon yourself. The best .22 rifle ever made.texjam said:Called one of the pawn shops Fri checking; buddy mentioned he had a marlin .22. Thought 60, of course. He said "mod 39A". Hair up on back of neck. Went by; it's a late '70's. First one I've seen in a ps. Laid it away. Felt really good to shoulder and racking. Shame it costs more than a 3030, but I knew I wouldn't see another.
