Greetings,
I have a Marlin 39A Golden Mountie Lever Rifle that has realistically been fired 2 to 3 times. I only remember it being fired once but...The gun
has been in the desert Southwest for the last 49 years so I would classify it as "USED Like New". I have had a difficult time finding out about this gun.
What I know is my father brought it back from his deployment to Korea in 1964. It was in a box, no longer have, and has no wear marks on the stock, but it appears to have some minor wear marks on the barrel, possibly from sitting in a home gun rack for so long??? It is clearly marked aside from the Marlin Firearms Co., New Haven Conn. USA MARLIN GOLDEN 39-A MOUNTIE on the barrel. The only serial type mark I see is under the lever and reads "Z 6640".
My question is
  • How do I determine the exact year manufactured.
  • Where can one find out about the guns specs.
  • What is their estimated worth.
  • What is the difference between a 39A and a 39A Golden Mountie.
Thanks for any information.

Z would be 1964. There is all kind of stuff about the 39 Mounties on this sight. You can watch some on Gunbroker and see what they are selling for. Post some pictures and someone will give you an opinion. I believe the difference for the most part is the Mountie has a straight stock and a 20" barrel. If that is not correct someone will stop by and correct me.
