I was considering the 39a as my first .22 rifle. Thoughts about the gun?
My first gun was a Marlin 39A in 1963. I still have it and it shoots great again after I had it rebarreled because, despite what some may say, a .22 barrel can be shot out if you shoot it enough. More recently I found a 39A Mountie, made in ’69. It is also great, but more difficult to find. Another candidate is the Winchester 9422, if you can find one of those.I was considering the 39a as my first .22 rifle. Thoughts about the gun?
