Help purchasing 39A for shooter



Log in to see fewer ads
I've wanted a Marlin 39 since I was about 13 years old (that would have been 1960). I'd like to finally buy one before I get too old to shoot.

I'd like to be able to fire any modern .22 LR ammunition in it, so my understanding is that I should not purchase one of the older model 39s. Is any Marlin 39, with a letter suffix (such as 39A or 39D) OK for use with all modern .22 LR ammo?

I'd like to mount a peep sight on the rear, and have a hooded front sight that 'matches' the rear peep. (I'm a paper puncher, not a hunter.) Which of the model 39s have capability for mounting a rear peep sight?

Can anyone give me advice on where I should look to find a used 39A or other model? I did an internet search, but this came up with only out-of-date Armslist listings. I'm located near Wichita, Kansas, and would be willing to drive up to 300 miles or so of Wichita in order to purchase one.

Last question - how much should I expect to pay?

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and for any help you can offer.
