Slingshot 455 - Great looking rifles - Those old 39's with the "S" curve pistol grip and tang mounted sights are one of the sleekest rifles around.

I have a 39A with the ballard rifling, "J" prefix. I found this rifle in pretty rough shape, so I refinished the stock, reblued the metal, replaced a few broken parts, some boggered screws, and added the Lyman receiver sight. For all its rough shape, it did have a beautiful trigger pull...still does.



I also have two 39A's from the mid 1980's....pre cross bolt safety. Here is a link on removing the cross bolt safety if you don't like it on your rifle.

Are you using an aperture insert in the front, or a post?

I acquired a "39 Article II" many years ago, with the octagon barrel.. Previous owner had fired it so a few more rounds didn't hurt..Surprising,, it still had the original carton with it. and the brass butt plate and foreend cap... Tin..

I'm in! ( Just barely). Picked up a NICE 95+ condition 66' 39A golden with a Lyman 66 peep just a few weeks back. It's already a favorite!

Yup, stand on your hind legs and shoot like a man!! Targets at 40, 50, 77 and 100 meters. Here's a link to the rules:http://www.lasc.us/LASClevermatch.htm

You can download the targets off the NRA website.

my 39

i bought a used 1981 39A golden. found it at a local shop, couldnt believe the price for the great condition it was in. i stopped and asked what was wrong with it. guy said nothing so i started the paperwork and ran to the bank to sneak some money out.

had to have it as a compainion peice to my ruger single six. i especially like it cause its pre-safety.

Iecently inherited a family 1934 model 39 that has been around since my great grandmother. It was her varmint rifle, my grandmother's, my father's, and now mine. Years of being in seattle led to irreversible damage and it was restored last year. It looks gorgeous now and is my first lever action. Forver and for always lever action now. Awesome rifle.
