I had an extra Kahr K9 lying around so I made a straight trade locally for a very clean 1984 made 39A Golden. It cleaned up very nicely and I would rate it at a very conservative 95% condition. It had a little bit of surface rust from sitting in a gun sock for years, but like I said, it cleaned up nicely. The rifle also came with two scope mounts. One was was still sealed in the wrapper.

I bought a 'Golden 39A' back in 1978 or so; not sure if the 'golden' means anything special or not. It was a crazy accurate rifle with a little (iirc) 'weaver wide-view' scope on it. When I missed with that gun, I knew it was me that did the missing.

Naturally, wish I still had it - it disappeared along with all my guns when I was in the service a few years later & my parents sold the farm. Never saw any of them again...

I bought a 1965 made Model 39A back in 1975. Still own and shoot it regularly. Has over 5000 rounds through it. Everything from Shorts to Rem Yellow Jackets, and CCI Mini-mags. Still shoots dime size groups dead center at 50 yards. Found and rebuilt an old Weaver 3/4 inch tube, 3 Power scope that looks very period correct and the combo is my all-time favorite rifle.

MODEL 39s ROCK!!!! You got a good deal on the trade. (My EDC is a Kahr CT 45) Go shoot the hell out of that 39, you'll do it no harm.

Good deal! Those 39a's are awesome.

My 39A is super accurate and one of my favorites.

I still own 4 model 39's that are 1940's through 1970's vintage. Accurate is a damn understatement.

Nice and a good trade IMHO.

I have a pre-safety 39M and absolutely love it! If you haven't broken it down yet (you didn't mention it in your OP) It's kind of funky at first. There are videos online to help.

Damn that's a nice Mountie.


I have a 100 year NRA. anniversary article 2 octagon barrel.
I bought a newer 39as (safety) for a beater rifle. Only problem is it has nice wood and shoots like a dream so I babbie it like I do my octagon barreled 39.

Op good trade, you came out the better.
I am up to 5 level guns now, just like brd. lever rifle disease lrd. is just as contagious.

Those are very nice rifles. I found one made the year I was born (1957) a couple of years ago and its one of my favorite .22 rifles. It aged much better than me!
