I have a Remlin 39A that I purchased used. It has been problematic from the first day I tried it out. It's a pretty rifle, but it's been plagued with FTFs and extraction failures. I've since fixed those problems, but in the mean time, I walked in the local gun shop. I spied a 1952 39A looking lonely and neglected. It had an old Weaver K4 scope mounted on a Weaver rail. They were asking a little too much for it and I asked about buying it without the scope. They knocked off $75.00 for the scope which made the price affordable. The gun was dirty and grungy and looked pretty bad. I took the thing home, cleaned it up and it turned out to be pretty decent. Actually, the wood is in great shape for being 62 years old. There is a little patina on the receiver sides and the bluing on the barrel is pretty rough and thin. The barrel is shiny and looks to be in good shape. The action is smooth and shows little wear. I mounted a Leupold 2-7x scope I wasn't using and headed for the range. It functioned great and accuracy was pretty good at 50 yards. I didn't really need another 39A, but I'm not sorry I bought it for $400.
