Difference between the 39A Mountie Style and 39A Mountie

Looking on GB at prices just being curious. There are two 39A Mounties marked on the barrels mounties. One was made in 1958 and the other in 1967.

I am just curious what the difference between the two different mountie styles are.

I believe the Mounties have the heavy barrel. I have a 1955 Mountie that has a heavy barrel but is not marked Mountie. Did they just not make the name Mountie on them at that time ? The one on GB is a 1958 and it is marked Mountie, mine is not. Just curious.



My 1966 model is definitely mark Mountie. I Love both of these rifles. I definitely need to get a better picture of this one though. It looks a lot better in real life compared to this crappy picture. Soon I will change that.



I paid way to much for the 1955 model but I had never seen one in the wild so I bought a really nice one. Then about six months ago my LGS had the 1966 hanging on the wall for $450, I pulled it down and bought it right then as soon as I saw it.

The two on GB were listed for over a thousand dollars. WOW, Couple others were at better starting prices but several bidders and both had several day's left.

Thanks,
I am not upset with what I paid, very happy with the rifle. Just funny that I have never seen one and a few years after purchasing this one I finally saw one in the wild.

A couple nice rifles there. I believe they were always called Mounties but not always marked Mountie on the barrel. Later they were marked 39M instead of 39A Mountie. Later ones had squared off levers instead of rounded. I don't know the year cutoffs for all the changes. Luckily the quality never changed too much.

I have a 39Mountie made 1977 if memory serves me right. Paid $250 from a co-worker in the late 80's. Very happy with it. At the time I thought that was a little high, but I wanted it so I bellied up.

I have two a 57 and the other I think is a 64, both have the rounded lever which I like much better than the squared model. As for heavy barrel, my thinking is that it is the same profile as the standard 39a, just being shorter makes it look thicker with the same taper. Just my idea.

They're all Mounties. Marlin just changed the rollstamp over the years and made slight cosmetic changes.

Some people will pay waaay too much for something because they have to have it and/or they get caught up in having to win the auction.
