    Jurist, do you mean pre-safety vs. with safety or Marlin owned vs. Remington owned?

    I would not buy A new Marlin sight unseen. Too many problems with them now. I would look at one VERY carefully before I bought it. Many are reporting getting good rifles. though bad ones are being shipped.
    Look for an older one made by marlin before Remmington took over.

    I had a great 39 in the late 60's. Bought it used from an upset gentleman coming out of a gunshop where they offered him $25 on trade for it. Looked new with box and papers. I gave him $40 for it. Used it many years then traded it for a Ruger mod 77 Ultra Lite 30-06 with a Leopold scope even up.I have many bolt action Marlin 22 rifles which shoot great. Just been thinking of getting a new 39. Glad I read this as I had not heard about problems with these rifles.

    I have one made in the early '70's and one that I bought about four years ago. Except for some minor cosmetic changes, (and the lawyer inspired cross bolt safety) I don't see a lot of difference in the two. Both function and shoot beautifully.

    I thought I had an extractor problem on my Model 39 TDS which I purchased new about 20 years ago. It turned out to be a really dirty chamber.
