Hey guys,
Hope all is well. I recently purchased a Marlin 39a Mountie from 1957. It's in great, original shape (95%) but I have a question on it. I've noticed that most directions for taking down the Marlin 39 indicate that the two halves are tightly mated and do not separate easily even once the takedown screw is unscrewed. On this particular rifle, it is fairly easy to takedown (the parts are not difficult to separate). Will this pose a problem for the longevity of the gun? Is it possible to takedown the gun so many times that the gun will no longer be tight?
Thanks!

Welcome to the MO from South Carolina and the answer to your question is no ... it shouldn't. It was made to be taken-down, cleaned and put back together.

Be sure to go to the New Members forum and introduce yourself and, again, welcome to the MO.

Thanks for the welcome. In your experience, have you ever seen a Marlin 39 that has been takendown too much and can no longer stay tight?

Never! And I got plenty of years on my 1955.
