This 1957 20" Marlin 39A was hiding in the corner at my LGS. I traded a 1952 full sized (24") Marlin 39A for it. Someone had put a Lyman 66MC sight and rear sight blank on it.

I've been looking for a "Mountie" but I have not seen one out in the wild for years.

Nice.  I have a 39D I bought used in '72.  Same length as your "Mountie" but with a pistol grip stock.  I always liked the straight stock like yours but never have seen one for sale in person.

Sweet carbine. Whoever put that sight on it was a right thinking man

Yes he was, he was into match rifles. The only thing I did was get shed of the aperture disk and replace it with one with a slightly larger iris hole.

Nice rifle , mine is a 1958. But a Mountie is a 39M, not a 39A.
39A is the more common 24 " barrel, semi pistol grip stock and fat "guppy" fore arm.

Hmm, mine is a 1959 vintage Mountie and it is marked "Marlin 39A Mountie" I dont believe they were marked "39M" until 1972: Are you sure of the date of your rifle?

Nice. I have one just like it but I forget the year.

My example just reads 39A.

I just looked at mine and I can't read it. I refinished it and between the sanding and the Duracoat, it's too faint to read.

It's a standard Model 39-A rifle.

The hammer appears to not be cut for a scope extension, so it's probably a 50's model.

I’ve had a Mountie marked 39A and one marked 39M. They are out there.

Here is a Mountie I have up my sleeve. According to the serial number it was made in 1973. Not really that old. It has a square lever which I like a lot more than the rounded lever for some reason. I bought this gun because it came my way, but have never really used it.  It is a pretty crisp little carbine though. I'm not sure but I think the 39M version has a lighter barrel than the 39A version.
