Default Marlin Mountie

The 39A Mountie 1953-1969 ,

Checkout Mordern Gun Values,14th edition or google the 39 A Mountie, wealth of info!

I also have the Winchester 9422,I like the Marlin 39A better, just my opinion!

My first gun in 1963 was a Marlin 39A. Shortly after I retired, I found a very nice 39A Mountie, made in 1969. It shot much better than my older 39A due to the amount of rounds I put through the old 39A. I got the 39A rebarreled by the factory and it now shoots as well as ever.

My most recent gun is a 1972 vintage Winchester 9422. It has been too cold and windy to do a definitive comparison with the Marlins and Winchester, but I suspect the differences are minimal and which one you like is probably a matter of personal preference.

1957-1987 Similar to Golden 39A except the M is carbine variation.
God, Family, Guns, in that order.

Don't forget Mossberg's 464 lever-action

But I do find all other lever-actions inferior to the Marlin 39's.
If I really couldn't afford the Marlin, I'd grab a mossy as the second choice.
