Scope mount recommedation for a 1947 Marlin 39A side mount



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello all, I have a 1947 Marlin 39a with a side mounted Weaver 330 scope. I inherited it from my father. I want to upgrade the scope that requires a 1" scope ring mount. I would like recommendations on the mounts I would need to upgrade to a modern 1" tube scope. The current side mount has a T03 stamped on it with 2 knurled attachment screws 2 3/8" on center. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Here is a link to a photo of my marlin scope and mount:

Advice: Leave Dad's rifle as it is if the optics are good. Beautiful setup you have their. Dad had great taste!

That's a good looking 39A. I'd try to gather enough cash and buy another 22 that would be easier to put a 1" tube on.
Another option is to check Weavers sight for a side mount that would work.
Good luck.

Thanks for the comments! I thing I will leave it as is. I know he had it buffed and re-blued years ago but was not totally thrilled after. With that in mind, I am sure the collector value is not that much of an issue. I did find a 3/4" barrel BARSKA 3-7x20 Rimfire Riflescope but it is really cheap looking so may look at a savage B22 G as my upgrade. Take care all!
