With what has happened with Marlin I started looking. I have a pretty nice '57 M39. Really not a fan of "bling" but I ran across a pretty good deal on the NIB "39". Fit and finish is flawless. The checkering is perfect (machine or hand?). I hope to shoot on Wednesday.

I already have a "shooter" as mentioned above. That one is priced high. I gave $1100 for mine.

Always looking and with cash. Underpriced consignments of late. The three boys are grinning.

That's the nicest one I have seen, it would be even nicer if it just had the gorgeous wood without the rest of the bling. I have three 39s,non come close to the showpiece this one is but the their all shooters.
