Had a Mountie. It was my dads, and the rifle he taught me to shoot at 4 years old, and which he later gave me. It was stolen when I was 19. Was my most cherished rifle of them all.

I didn't realize till recently that Marlin stopped production of the 39. Only available thru the custom shop and prices start around $2500.00. Best not sell any for a while.

I bought a newer production 39 7-8 years ago. I think I might have kept it 2-3 weeks. I didnít care for it at all, but the price was right.

Another 39a owner. Glad my pops talked me into buying it from a pawnshop in Conroe about 93. Think I paid 250 for it.

Father in law has a 39d I'd like to have

I had my Grandfather's 39. Octagon barrel, tang Marbles peep sight. It was my most favorite rifle until someone decided that they needed it more than I did and broke the window out of my truck and helped themselves to it.

It is awesome!! I have a pic of me shooting it when i was only 4 or 5. My grandpa was standing there and my dad was kneeling and i was using his shoulder as a shooting rest. Now, 40 years later, I am taking my kids out shooting squirrels with the same gun. We also take his Marlin Model 60. That gun is only about 35 years old. I never got to hunt with him but taking his guns out is like having him with us.

I've got a 39M that my parents gave me when I was 15. I was going through a bunch of paperwork after dad passed last year and found the original price tag on the gun... $101.33 Things have sure changed in 43 years.
