Hi, glad to be here.
I just acquired, I believe it was made in 1952 (I was made in 1951)
It had been sitting for decades under someone's staircase.
It took some elbow grease to shine it up but it's a great shooter.

Sadly it is missing the bullseye.

The original owner (now deceased) took excellent care of the insides, they were like new.

Anyway, greetings from beautiful Parma Ohio.

Great Staircase Find!
Bullseye inserts are on sale now.
Good to hear, thanks. Mine is also missing the front sight and part of the rear. They must have been removed when the scope was mounted.

Link? Are they the real thing?
One of my sons has a 3-D printer and seems confident that he can recreate one.
I have found some online but they are also 'printed.'

I checked my Marlin lever action list and found that I own a Marlin 39A made in 1951 (SN H831) and one made in 1952 (J2610). What is your Marlin's serial number?
Hi Whig. I'm a bit paranoid about posting my entire serial number. But this should give you and idea.
There seems to be an upside down T between the J and the rest of the numbers but I guess it could be a 1

Welcome to the Forum Sarge......that 39 is in excellent shape.....congrats on your acquisition.
I have a 1951 model which came to me with a Lyman peep. It shoots rather nicely, and was the 1 in 100 that left the factory with splendid walnut figure.It has a good share if nicks and dings around.
Happy shooting and keep posting....
