The conversation concerning stainless steel and the model 39 is probably all for naught because it's probably not going to happen. However, If Ruger/Marlin were to offer the model 39 in both blued and stainless steel with just a slight premium for the stainless steel model, I think you would see pretty quickly which one was always sold out and hardest to get.

hint: The silver one

$2550 minimum bid.

Not there yet $2525 and 20 minutes left.

Plus they want an extra 3.5 % if you charge it!

Didnt someone say they are collecting sales tax too?

So $3000 out the door!

Hope it sells , then mine have a chance at $1000 each

The Model 60 must be a huge money maker because it has captured the low end of the market. Surely Ruger would keep it and aim the 10/22 at a slightly more upscale audience.

I still think the profits from the Model 60 subsidized the Model 39 for some years. And it wouldn't be the first time something like that has happened. The Winchester Model 21 shotgun was always a money loser but John Olin kept it alive with the profits generated by the Model 94.

Keeping the 39 was a matter of pride to Marlin. It was not a matter of pride for Remington and likely won't be for Ruger.

Bill Ruger would have %%%%ed the torpedoes and kept the Number 1 and the Red Label shotgun in production. He might even have resurrected the Marlin 39.

But that only happens in companies where there is one strong willed owner.
Ruger's web site gives an opportunity to write to the CEO. I did just that and criticized the company's decision to drop the #1 and the 77's. I told him that a manufacturer doesn't have to make a gajillion of anything to make money. Designing and tooling to bring out a new model every week is expensive. I went on to tell him that dropping the 77/22 was a big mistake leaving that end of the market open to Anschutz and SAko, both far more expensive. I suggested that they build a 77/22 that was more accurate out of the box and charge accordingly. I said that bringing out a new model every week at the senseless low prices was bad business. Just look at that pathetic Wrangler. If they want cheap, why not replace the plastic firearms out of recycled reinforced cardboard~!

Amen to that brother, and double ditto. I have several Miroku Winchestersw and a Miroku built Browning B-92. Higher quality for the price doesn't exist. I'd buy a 39-A by Miroku in a NY minute {without the crossbolt safety~!)

39-A by Miroku

I've got $1100 ready to spend on a 39-A made by Miroku just as long as they leave that ugly cross-bolt safety and rebounding hammer off of it~!

I finally parted ways with my 39AS bought new in 1997. I put it on consignment through an online seller. Even after consignment I received far more than I ever thought a crossbolt safety rebounding hammer 39 would ever bring.

Selling it was not too hard and won't regret it anytime soon as I also have a 1979 39A . This one will be with me for as long as I am able to shoot!

Man I feel bad, paid $110 for a 39M about 15 years ago. Pawn shop find and needed some TLC. Looked like it rode in a pickup gun rack most of it's life but internals indicate shot very little.

Yeah me too, I bought a 1955 39M 4-5 years ago for $220 needing some exterior TLC, but everything inside was great.

To say I was a happy camper is an understatement
