I was cruising the local bass fishing forum yesterday when I noticed a 39a for sale . No pictures . Asking price $300 .
I promptly shot off a PM offering $250.00 . I basically forgot about it , passing it of as a pipe dream . This morning I look at my tablet & notice I have 1 unread PM in my inbox : " $250.00 will be fine "

I arranged a meeting for it as soon as I could & went to pick it up .


Turns out to be what the seller said was a late 60s model . Rifle is in excellent condition . No rust , no pitting almost flawless bluing . The wood has one light surface scratch which I think can be buffed out . The white spacers are shrunk but that is an easy fix . Shiny barrel , tight smooth action .

The serial # is kind of odd (see pic ) . I think V= 1961 . Not sure what to make of the X ??

Hey Alman,

That is a great looking 39A! (hear sirens? flashing lights?) LOL!

Great score, and am glad for you!

Later, Mark

You stole that gun. $300 would have been a great deal. As to the X, it looks like the started the ser# wrong, and then did it right. Maybe the X just denotes it.

Great deal alman! I guess some of us bass fisherman were born last night. That might very well be the nicest, cheapest, 39a purchased in the 21st Century! I'd call Guinness...

Deals like this are far from the norm here as well ditto . I paid close to $450.00 for a 1953 39a several months ago . That one did not even approach the condition this one is in . I thought I got a great deal at $450.00 for that one . :marchmellow:

Great Price!! last one I saw was listed at 450 in a pawn shop. They weren't coming down at all. Didn;t have the required amount at the time. It was gone next time I went in.
