My father had a perfect cond 1964 39a mountie. I say had because he droped it about a year ago and broke the buttstock in half. For anyone who is curious the mountie has a straight butt stock where the regular 39 has a pistol grip. Anyway, it was made of a real beautiful burrled black wallnut(hence why it broke so easy). I finally convinced him to get a replacement stock, sadly, all that could be found was a aftermarket straight grain wallnut one. It will need to be finished when it arrives, any idea what kind of finish marlin used? it has a satin matte look, mabey tounge oil? would be great to know so I can match it as best as possible.
thanks

I know they were oil finished up until 1969 or 70, but I have no idea what kind of oil. If you don't get a definite answer here, try calling Marlin or posting at Marlin Talk on the Marlin site.

Nice rifles. I have a '63.
