I would try and find one prior to 2006 and you should be safe. I would shy away from the new one but that is just me.

Hi I bought one last month and am very happy with it. I had a heck of a time finding one in my area. Shoots good no problems and I put a Williams peep on it. No FTF or FE and very accurate also no worries about buying someone else's problems.I would do it again, but then again I'm a notorious "goof" ;), Regards, Mike

Just what did you expect posters on the Marlin Rimfire page to say? Sounds like you're looking for justification. Otherwise, your not much of a detective.

Well sport,I wouldn't buy a remington made 336 and just curious if the
39a was just as shoddy. It seems that some people think they are.

Hi, if I came to the Marlin Rimfire page and saw the pages and pages of discussion on extraction problems I would have never bought one. Lucky for me I bought one first. After seeing those posts I ran out into the snow to test fire my new 39a. Happy to say no problems.$600 is alot to spend on a 22 rifle. All the salesmen tried to sell me a Henry. I'm happy with my Marlin. :) Regards, Mike

I don't like the rebounding hammer and the safety on the new guns, so if I was buying a 39, I'd be looking for one that was pre-safety.

Hi, has Remington made any 39a's yet? Will they be marked Remington anywhere. I pretty sure mine was a left over as everything is marked Marlin. Just wondering, forgot all about Remington. When I was searching for my rifle I sent Remington an E-mail asking if they will still be made.They responded "yes, but we don't know when they will be available". Regards, Mike

10 minutes and a hacksaw will fix that rebounding hammer...

I love my 2008. I did have the extractor break at the tip after several hundred rounds fired, and replaced it with a Wisner's.
The action and trigger were a little stiff new, but not terrible. I cycled the action while watching TV, probably a couple thousand times. I then took it all apart and stoned and polished all the areas that showed any wear, and stoned any rough edges. Smooth as silk now. I went after the trigger next, and after just a few strokes of the stone on the sear and hammer I had a crisp 2# break. Stock iron sights were replaced with XS ghost rings with Williams aperture. Last I refinished the stock with Tru-Oil, sanding off the checkering in the process. I think I have achieved the perfect "new" 39A.

None of these things I did were really a must, I just like to tweak my rifles.
Oh, and it'll shoot the wings off a fly at 50 ;D

Yes! The two that are here in our home are a few years old and just fine shooting rifles.
