Log in to see fewer ads
Just picked up my 39a out of layaway today just a gorgeous rifle. Trigger feels around 3 lb no creep very happy with the shape of this gun. Have wanted one since I was a kid and finally have one. Putting a leupold vx2 2x7-33 on it with warne low quick release rings. Have to get a forend tip with swivel mount have a nos bianci sling I am adding.

Good looking rifle. If you have a set of taps, you can get the stud and add it to the for end cap you have. They take a 3/16-32 tap. #21 drill. If you were local to me I could install it for you.

The 1977-1987 period of marlin 39a's are some of the best looking. Nice wood finish nice metal finish good action work great micro groove barrels nice open sights and a rock solid platform for a good scope. Still semi handcrafted and hand fitted but with the good machining of that time period and before marlin changed the blue formula to a less toxic mix.

There were a couple years around 1982 with black triggers instead of the gold ones. I have one of the 39m's from that era and a shooter 39a from 1985 also. One very good looking shooter and a shooter because it is one very accurate rifle.

I am not saying that I don't enjoy my older ones. The 1950's era Mountie I just put a period k-4 weaver scope on is one of my favorites to hunt with and like your my 39a is not set up for a sling. The Mountie is with a later period marlin logo sling they used to sell for 15 dollars.
