Literally killing time waiting on a snow cone truck to open, so swung by my favorite LGS. He has had a 39M on the shelf for a few weeks that he took in on trade and gave to much. Asking $579. Low and behold, he had two 39A's along side it. I bought the nicer of the two, priced at the just right price of $400. It is a 1975 model and the previous owner was either the most meticulous guy or he never shot it. It took some pounding to break it apart and it was very clean. Nice dark blue. The other one was around the same era, but had some pitting on the right side of the receiver. Still had the bullseye and sight hood. It was priced at $379. I may have to go back and trade something for it. Hard to leave a 39A behind priced like that these days. Well, here it is, enjoy. I am.
