This one has been redone for sure The serial number starts with Y so I thing 1964. It has some custom work for sure along with a strange trigger. Anyone know anything about the trigger or gun? I have past it up several times. He was asking $550.00. It is a pawn and gun so I traded a knife and a pool cue plus 215.00 cash. I would say I have about $500. in it as he came down some on the gun but gave me less than retail of course for my stuff. Anyway I was happy with the deal and knew this is no collector, but other than one ding in the butt stock and the missing bulls eye it is in nice condition. The remodel job is not my style but looks to be done well. Of course I am a sucker for the Redfield peep sight as well.

With that 3/4 length magtube .... Marlin 39 Carbine?? All the looks of the Mountie with the lightness of the Browning BL-22. What does the roll mark say on the barrel? I think 64 was the first year for the Carbine model.

Sweet looking rifle, the Redfield peep is a nice score.

Great post as I was going to ask about the short mag tube. I thought maybe it was custom also. The barrel says "Marlin 39 carbine". I was looking at pictures and all had the long mag tube. The barrel is 19 3/4 to the receiver so 20" total I would think.

Wow! You hit the lottery! They only made that one from 64-67. Last one I saw on Gunbroker was ~$800'ish. Realy nice find!

I have no idea about the wide trigger. I went out back and shot the rife and it shoots like a dream. The sight works great and the rifle is smooth as glass. The trigger feels good to me but is a custom add on for sure. The is no questions whoever did the rebuild job on the rife was good. It does not look like it was done recently though but at the sasme time I don't think the rifle has been used much after it was done. The hammer and the big nut look like they are nickel plated.

Okay I looked closer and just as you said "that thing on the trigger". I thought it was one piece but now see that it is some add on to the regular trigger held by allen screws. It didn't bother me shooting it, but I will take it off as it seems the trigger would be easy to bump being so close to the edge of the trigger guard.

They are called 'trigger shoes'. Not as popular as they were in the 50's-70's. They can come loose, or protrude enough to cause ADs. A cop buddy had one on his 2 1/2" M66 S&W and set it off shoving it into a shoulder holster. Singed the hairs on his armpit and shot a hole through the roof. Trigger shoe went bye bye. He joked that it blew the "warning - do not use with trigger shoe" label off the Safariland holster. Also said the roof never leaked, the house was a rental anyway. Trigger shoes were common on target pistols as the wider surface reduced the 'perceived' trigger pull weight by spreading the weight over a wider area of the trigger finger. AC

gunscrewguy thank you very much. I am learning something here all the time. With that in mind it sounds as if the trigger shoe and the Redfield sight could be correct for a 1964 Marlin 39. I will at least keep it in a safe place.

Half cocked the pool cue was a Brunswick Personal that if sold on Ebay with the right buyer could have brought 200.00 and the knife was a case Bowie from the 80's. If I had sold them on Ebay and got lucky I may have got 300. out of them and then had to ship them ect. He was doing good on the rifle but I knew the 39's were $500. range and this one had the Redfield sight so I was okay with the deal.
