Here is a nice early Marlin model 39 takedown lever action rifle in 22 S, L, & LR caliber with a 24" octagon barrel having a bright, near excellent bore. This rifle has serial #S16012 and was manufactured circa 1930's. The receiver and lever exhibit a pleasing mottled grayish brown patina with a hint of original case color remaining on the lower tang where it has been protected by the lever and trigger. The remaining metal surfaces retain about 70% or a thinning original blue finish starting to turn a brown patina wich blends well with the balance as a brownish gray patina due to high edge wear. pistol grip walnut butt stock with the "S" shaped end of the pistol grip, bullseye along the toe line and checkered hard rubber butt plate and forearm rate very good to near excellent with honest light dings and handling marks. The stocks are void of any cracks or chips. The Lyman front sight appears to be a period replacement but matches well with the age of the rifle. Mechanically, this rifle is very smooth and functions perfectly. The previous owner purchased this 50 plus years ago when in his early twenties and has decided that it must be cared for and cherished by another.  {C&R} (See Photos)
