You have been given all good info. Just pick the one you like, and enjoy it. They all shoot. Just be sure to get one made before 1988, which is the year, if i remember right, when they added that stinky rebounding hammer and cross bolt safety. Any 39A before that will do you just fine. Just stay away from anything that is stamped 39AS.

Hi Bob - I was in the Wichita Cabelas a couple weeks ago, they had an early 50ís 39a with a peep installed in their used gun area. I think the tag said $550 but they would probably come down if it is still there. It was definitely a shooter and not a safe queen, the stock had a few rough spots and it looked like someone added an extra front sling mount. Also the Chisholm Trail gun show next weekend will almost definitely have a few.

Keep looking, youíll find one. I found mine last fall after looking for a while.

i will jump in and add that i have a 9422 as well - nothing bad to say here , i think you need both - or all four depending on where in this thread you might get stuck - im just in favor of the marlin as long as it was the OP topic , i did get a mountie as well , both date to the 50s , my 9422 is early 70s vintage , nothing wrong with it in any way , just love my marlins , i have a mossberg palomino too but i dont lump it in the same conversation with these marlins ,

I canít make up my mind which I like better. The 39A, or the 9422.
Both are real gems. I think my favorite is the one that Iím shooting at the time.

peep sight option

I installed a Skinner peep sight on my 39A and it made it again usable for these 70+ year old eyes...ÖÖÖ.
