I recently inherited a 39a with the squir :?: ral on the the butt and the stock and butt are in excellent condition, but who ever originally owned it shot it and the blueing is so so. Should I send it to Marlin for metal work or leave as is?

If you have it re-blued, you also take away the majority of the trade-in and resale value, too. SW

In addition, the value of the gun wont be as great as the cost to refinish it.
By the way, welcome to the forum!

thanks for the welcome and the replies, enjoy shooting the other 39s but can not see why with the great tooling and etching anyone would have shot this one
