Default 39a

Are the new golden model sold today still able to be taken apart at the receiver with the thumb screw? Didnt read anything in the latest description on Marlins website.

Yes. The design has not changed. But DO READ THE MANUAL on how to separate the two halves of the rifle. (PS- and yes, it is still in production. Just got off the phone w/ Marlin. They are selling as fast as they are made.)

Just arm wrestled with my LGS on Sunday for another 39A. Makes 3 of them now.

Needs some cleanup, but the wood is good (varnish is not) and the metal very good. Serial prefix E- 1948.

Yes the same, but the best advice is find a good older used one in excellent condition as MRT mentioned in the above post 1969. I think they were made better in the past and had better wood. I have one that was made in 1978. I have looked at the new ones and seems there is a difference?

I've traced mine back to 1956. It's still my favorite "fun gun"

I have a 1950s 39M Marlin Mountie. I first saw them in "Boy's Life" magazine. It took years however for me to come with the $65 dollars to buy one.
