I second the henry. The action is way smoother then the other options out there

I'll add my vote for the Henry, you can't do better for the price.

The Henry's are a nice rifle, but their iron sights really suck.....they need to be scoped for better accuracy. JMHO

The Marlin 39 is a good gun but they are butt ugly with that Godawful take down screw. I'll add to the Henry faction with a Golden Boy.

Henry makes an Ocotgon barrel model that looks great. Marlin's quality control has gone down lately and the last model I tried had a really rough action. Henry also makes a pump w Ocotgon barrel as well. I'm not a big fan of used guns but that just me. Finding a 1960's model could be difficult.

Those who have a good one, love them, and will not part w one cheaply. I got a lemon and sold it, accuracy wasn't up to par but that was an anomaly.

Henry is 100% American made if that makes a difference to you.

I would go with the Henry if you think you'd want something newer than the 60's. I have a Golden Boy I got about 8 years ago and that gun is so smooth you'd swear it had been worked over by a custom shop. It's accurate as well. I hit soda cans at 100 yards all day long with the little gun.

I really like my 39A. Mine is bout 5 years old and it drives tacks at 50 yards w federal 550 bulk packs.....iv done it w silver thumb tacks so its a true tack driver my uncle has my grandpa's old Marlin 39 from the early 60s I believe it is-never really tried to find out how old it is-and its just as well made as mine. Its been carried in alot of trucks and yet still shoots sub dime groups at 75 yards all day long w most ammo you want to feed it.
