I have one . Several years ago I decided I wanted a model 39 for pinking tin cans and the occasional squill. Cheap target practice and the same feel as the centerfire lever actions I hunt with. 4 years ago I thought 75$ was a fair price for a used plinker , 150$ a couple years ago , now any tin can plinker / squill shooter that doesn't look like it was dragged on a rope behind the vehicle that brought it to the store , is asking like 400$ Seriously , 35 years ago it sold new for 75$ , now you want 400$ for that well used 22 ???? I am a cheap bastid , but paying 2x the price of a nice used center fire rifle for a rough tin can plinker / occasional squirrel shooter is just driving me crazy.So many guns,so little money!
duster how is the Mauser project coming along? post some pictures of it.Just knocked a biggy off my wish list. Got a 1894C 357 on the way. Next up is finish the Mauser project. Then a Bounty Hunter 22/22m to replace the 22 pistols the kids grew up and took away from me.
Yep , but seeing as the three hunting rifles I use date from 1971 , 1951 , and 1936 , the newest 39 I'm looking for is at least 25 years old ( pre- crossbolt safety ) I'm pretty sure that in 1987 and before the retail price was no where near what the dealers are asking for a well used 1/4 + century old tin can plinker. Even if inflation is added in. I'm not looking for a new in box or perfect condition 22 , I just want to add a 4th space to that rack in my pic.I think a 39 goes for a bout $700 new
Nothing to post yet except a pile of parts and a few tools. When I get everything I need I'll start and finish it as one complete job. The only issue I see is the finish. I'm going to try and tool up to hot blue it. I'll take pics when I start.duster how is the Mauser project coming along? post some pictures of it.
LOL , the leveractions are a lot less tippy canoe on the pegs that way , The main reason is that is the front door to the camp and when you grab one off the rack by the receiver it becomes right side up and ready to go out the door. No muss no fuss Never know when you may need to grab one in a hurry , and as the flag says they are hot . An empty chamber , but that's the great thing about a levergun . grab and go and ready with a flick of the wrist if need be.Nice Marlins Phil If you dont mind me asking why are those guns upside down,Im sure there a good reason for it.
