Another piece of vintage Marlin trivia.....

Marlin "burned" the stocks for the final fit. They heated the tangs and pressed in the stock, burning it, to a perfect fit.

No matter how hard you try you will not match the wood grain or even get close. Each piece of wood is unique.

Marlin's finish was proprietary. Again, it will not match.

100% original

You bought it for about $100 below market.......and the market has been soft. Pre-microgrooved models do carry a little bit of a premium so don't have any buyers remorse.

The early c still had a case colored receiver. Those were leftovers from pre-WW2.

Marlin did not build rifles sequentially. They just pulled a receiver out of a bin and started. AFAICR the SN...

Mea Culpa. You are 100% correct. I have a picture somewhere of the crack just behind the bolt face at the lever notch.

'racked bolt

Here's why you don't shoot high velocity ammo in pre-war Marlin's.

ANY of the receiver sights available or mentioned will work just fine. It's up to your budget.

It's a 22 levergun that was designed as a "sporting" rifle, not a sub-moa target rifle.

I believe the OP is referring to Model 39 (NO"A").

Yes, anything above about 1085fps may damage the bolt.

Too much. The market has been soft for several years.

$600 is market. Tens of thousands were made. It's just a basic 39A, not a short run variant.

Weaver made metallic gray colored, plastic, slip on, caps you could buy. They didn't come with the scope.

I seriously doubt any have survived. They dried out and crumbled over the years.
