I couldn't understand why Marlin didn't make any of their short 39's anymore but looks like Chiappa's is making a non-takedown 18.5" copy. I have 2 Marlin 39D's now and have owned and LOVED all the 39 models, from the TDS, 39M, 39A through an old 1892 octegon model... If these are priced right and good quality, I'm buying one. Anyone know anything about Chiappa's quality? I've never bought one of their guns.
edit: Just noticed they do have the take down screw....
