I have been looking for a rifle case for my Marlin 39M. Lotsa canvas and cordura out there but have started seeing cases called "leg of mutton" for takedown shot guns as a possible option. These look like a better form of protection, they seem to be around used for reasonable prices (ebay) AND it looks like they might be available in the smaller size that might better fit my short 39M without it sliding around inside. I like the leather idea too. Has anyone used this type of case for his 39M? good idea? Any good suggestions?
