39a scope options



Log in to see fewer ads
This 1950 Marlin 39A had blocks installed many years ago. None of my scopes wil fit. What would be a suitable scope option for this rifle? I assume something vintage is possible but I am not familiar with them. I will appreciate any suggestions.

I am a partial to reciever sights on 39A's,but since they are already on there. measure the distance between stands and remember where the eye piece will need to be then go on eBay and look for 1" vintage scopes that will fit your rough measurements and doesn't look like a neon sign on an outhouse.

Look like the mounts are set for a Marlin Micro-View 4x

I cannot see your mounts very well..Could you post a pic with a clear shot of the mounts?

On a sidenote..Has anyone ever seen if there is a a 1 inch ring copy of the old Weaver N4 side mounts like shown in the photo above? In other words..An old style 3/4 tube mount with the same mounting pattern..But for a 1 inch tube?

I have a old Micro View..But man are those things tiny.. Impossible at my age to see anything through them.

I may give you an old Micro View if you are a younger fella with better eyes..But I am unsure if it works. Crosshairs are intact..Glass is decent..I have never mounted it though..But if it did not work..It may be worth you paying to have it worked on..

That is why I asked for better pics of the mounts..They almost look like posa or half moon mounts for a vintage scope.

I thought they look like Weaver mounts.

Buy a set of cantilever rings, and point them at each other , https://www.amazon.com/Monstrum-Offs...175445&sr=8-52

Then maybe you could use a modern scope.

39a scope options

Thanks for the suggestions. The mounts are Weaver 29 and 16. I just sold a 22 with cantilevered mounts. I feel a modern scope is my best option. I have several older 3/4 scopes with 4x and my 77 year old eyes require more. I'll post when I get a scope mounted.

I appreciate the advice. Don't think I would have thought of cantilevered mounts. Old eyes sometimes accompany a brain that does not remember as much.

Thanks
Charlie

Cantilevered rings may move the scope too far forward....... that would require an EFR scope.

scope options

The Monstrum mounts are not compatible with Weaver blocks. I was planning on reversing the forward cantilevered ring and leave the rear cantilevered ring facing forward, or use a non-canted ring. Then the issue becomes eye-relief. I am trying various combinations using rings and scopes that I have.

I am also mounting a scope on a recently acquired CZ 457 At One. It's a little more conventional.
Thanks for your ideas.
Charlie

A Lyman Alaskan is more of what I was suggesting,I bet it would work and not look too bad and with Weaver steel hook rings.
