In an earlier post which I can't find I posted how I threw a bid at gunbroker on a 39A , but at the time I wasn't really in the market for one. Well I won, the rifle looked really rough in the gunbroker pictures but it was dirt cheap. Got it, cleaned years of grubby stuff out of the action and headed to the range. It was a pretty good shooter. Checked the serial number and found it was built in 1950. Well attached are some pictures and for a 70 year old rifle I am pleased. Blueing on the barrel looks like someone attempted a restoration with cold blue in the previous century

My 1947(my birth year) 39A's barrel has turned a pretty plum, still sports its original Weaver scope and shoots unbelievable accurately. Being as old as me, it's in better shape.

Good for you. I did exactly the same thing a few months ago except it was a 1947 model and I paid .$5.00 less than you did. Course I ain't bragging. They are so smooth once cleaned up.
