Well I had asked some questions about my newly acquired model 39 and finally got around to taking a few pictures for you guys. She's seen better days and I'm still unsure if I'll go with a complete restoration, or go another route but I'll figure that out later. Enjoy!

As long as the mechanism work and it shoots good. The rest is a piece of cake. If it were mine I would restore it some. Reblue it and rework the wood. She will look pretty once you get it done.

Thanks for sharing. That's a good looking rifle. I'd be tempted to leave it as is. There is a lot to liked about the "been there, done that" look.

That "been there, done that" look has some class to it.

Currently we have a fail to feed issue and I'm hoping that a little shimming to the lever will take care of the issue. Other than that the gun has an awesome feel. Thanks for all the compliments.

Looks good as is, I vote for leave it, maybe repair the cracks in the stock. What is the inlay in the stock behind the receiver?

I'd get her running and leave her just the way she is. Good looking rifle in my book!

The gold you see in the stock is a small bolt holding the buttstock together, pretty good crack running through.
