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

Hey, I didn't say levers weren't pretty! I just said I didn't like that particular one!

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.
