I have a friend that wants to sell a Marlin 39A Take Down carbine. This one comes with the canvas bag. I guess it is a survival model. The gun looks literally brand new. It was shot/handled vary little. Does anyone know the fair market value of this gun?

All depends what year it was made and condition never heard of a survival model they are all take downs does it have a curved lever or straight lever?
If it's a straight lever it's a Mountie they are bringing crazy prices
If it's an older Mountie in the condition you say it's in easy over $700.00
Or it could be a 39 TDS they were a shorter rifle 16.5 inch barrel I believe they came with a case from the factory....750.00 to 900.00 $1000.00 if somebody can't live with out it.

Wilkeshunter: These are rare little Rifles - if it is the same Rifle that I have - a Marlin 39 TDS.
Mine I bought new and it remains unfired in its canvas (black if I recall correctly) carrying case.
Mine has the 16 1/2 barrel and is as cute as a bugs ear!
These were advertised (manufactured 1988 - 1995), again if I recall correctly, as Take Down Survival (TDS) Model 39's.
My two year old "blue Book" shows 100% condition at $750.00 (I would NOT even consider selling mine for that pittance!). So add some for more current and more realistic prices and rarity - and I would propose it to be in the area of $900.00 to $1,000.00. I looked over on gunsstealersinternational and one is listed there at $1,199.00 plus shipping.
The reason I can not be more definitive in my estimation is because I have never seen another one for sale at a gunshop or a gunshow since I bought mine out in Bellingham, taxington way back when!
I want one to throw behind the seat of the VarmintMobile and have along at all times but not be gettin in the way. Just can NOT find a "used" one.
Again I have never fired a round out of mine so can't comment on function/accuracy/handiness afield etc.
I say GO AFTER this piece with intensity and gusto - or, "I" will.
Good luck

P.S.: Let me add my Rifles serial number so's we can be sure we are talking oranges to oranges here - #102511xx - compare that to your friends.
According to one Marlin dates of manufacture list I found my Rifle was made in 1990.
Hope this helps.

Wilkeshunter: Here is a link to the Marlin Model 39 TDS for sale on gunstealerinternational which has a series of photos that clearly shows the black canvas carrying case for this very short (especially when in take down mode) Rifle.

Good luck and again "go get it".

Hey Gang,

Thanks for all the great responses! These Marlins sure are neat little rifles! It is in their hands now. I told them to let me know what they had to have for it. There are some in their family that are interested in the rifle, supposedly to quickly resell for a profit. These folks know me well, and they know that we will keep it, care for it, and hunt with it. It would be a squirrel rifle for my son, daughter, and myself. My son may actually shoot it in 4-H competition, as he is a bit on the shorter side. I will let you boys know how things work out.

Wilkeshunter: Good luck with the Rifle acquisition! And thank you for promising to let us know how you do.
That Rifle would be perfect for a smaller framed youth!

I have some good news! We ended up settling on $450.00 for the 39A. The seller was really wanted assurance that whom ever purchased the rifle would keep it and use it. They really were concerned that it would would be resold to pick up a quick buck. Luckily for me, I had some folks speak on my behalf, that I would do with the rifle as I promised. I sent many thanks to the seller. She is away at a vacation property, so I won’t get it for a week or two. Come October, we will be hunting squirrels with our Model 39A!

That was a fantastic buy, congratulation! I don't have the case for my TDS but it's in great condition and is very fun to shoot. Enjoy your new rifle.

Wilkeshunter: That indeed is fantastic news.
Good for you.
I am still looking for a "shooter" type TDS and have been for a LONG time.
People are just so happy with them they seldom come onto the market.
Enjoy.
