View Full Version : Do you think this is too much for a Marlin 39A?

used "excellent" condition Marlin 39A $335
Shipping $35
Transfer fee ~$50

So ~$420 all together

From the picture looks like an older one since there it doesnt have the checkered wood.

I want one so bad but thats a lot of money for a rimfire.:confused:

That's about the going rate for a decent used 39a. It would be a good deal if you could find one locally, but the transfer fee and shipping kills it.

Kerley's in Cupertino had a used 39a on the shelf a few weeks ago. Dunno if it's still there, and I don't remember what they wanted for it, but it may be worth a call if it's not too far for you.

Unfortunately, good .22 lever actions don't show up that much in the used market. If it were me and I weren't in a big hurry, I'd keep waiting, hoping for a good deal on a 39a, Browning BL22, or a Henry.

Too bad Walmart doesn't carry guns any more, because you used to be able to get a great deal on the Henry lever action .22 there.

IF that's an earlier oiled stock 39A, then you're not doing too bad.

Well now I am considering this one.
The stock looks kinda blond compared to the other one. Maybe its just the picture.

$250 for the rifle
$20 shipping
$50 transfer

total $320
