I always wanted a 39 from the time I was about 15. For one reason or another I never did get one until a couple of years ago. Guess it's about time I posted some pics of it. She's a 39A of 1957 vintage.







This last image shows one of her "beauty marks" It dosen't bother me as I am a shooter not a collector. Gives the gun some individual personality. My only regreat is it was there when I bought the old girl so I don't know the story behind it.

That's a pretty one alright, even with the added character mark. My 39-A is a '54 vintage, and the wood doesn't show a lot of figure. Not a lot wrong with the wood on mine. It's got a few metal scars from where someone tried to weld a broken mag tube ring, and grinder marked from the prep... Still a good shooter- I've had both a Redfield and a Williams peep on it, and it's quite accurate off hand. Gonna take it in for D&T for the Marlin 90 scope mount- do my eye-sight a favour, and perhaps realize the true accuracy potential of this fine 'ol Marlin....

Regards,

I may be persuaded to trade for that one if it's a package deal including the rack. :lol:

Yeah, right! Just take a look at those photos and you'll notice that you can't see the entire rifle......just the stock and the tip of the scope.

What was that saying that P.T.Barnum used to say?

Ahh! Larry, a man with discerning taste. That poor gal has suffered a lot of barbs on this forums. I'm glad you'd be willing to deal.
