Hi Guys, I need help? I have two Marlin 39A's both with R prefix's, 20 inch barrels both 98% but very different. One has all the barrel ID close to the receiver and the "Marlin Golden 39A - Mountie" is in Gold, the trigger is Gold, the furniture is oil finish and the Butt Plate has the White spacer. The other one has the barrel ID before the sight riser the ID is higher up on the barrel so the top of "The Marlin Firearms Co" is missing and it has Est. 1870, is labeled a "Marlin 39A", blued trigger, clear coat furniture, round trigger spur and the Butt Plate is Black no white spacer. I assume they made two Carbines in 1958? Is one more rare than the other? Thanks and especially Thanks if you know the quantity of each made

Not aware of two different Mounties made in 58. But then I've only been around the block once. The one with the clear coat finish was probably refinished.

Someone with more experience may have an explanation.

I have a R prefix Golden Mountie, My dad gave it to me in 1958 for my 9th Bday. I have put thousands of rounds thru that gun all thru out my life and in fact I shot it last weekend and it is still dead on with a redfield peep sight that my dad installed when I was about 12 yr old.
