    I've decided this is a must have gun so I'm hoping to make a purchase in a month or two (need to save money aside for those Christmas gifts too). Anyone have photos of their Marlin they care to post? :)

    I've grand-dad's ol Marlin 39A around here.. anything in particular you want a picture of? (It's decades old, I've no idea if anything's changed in the interim).

    I'd just like to see everyone's pics of their Marlins -- no matter what the age. Can't wait to get one of my own....

    By the way, how hard is this gun to clean? Does it take long to learn?

    Here's a pic of mine.

    It's an old classic. Made in '66 IIRC. This rifle is reliable, tough and accurate.

    It's not hard to clean at all. I use a boresnake with CLP most of the time. For periodic detail cleaning, unscrew the thumbscrew and the rifle breaks in half and allows you to clean the very simple action with a toothbrush and your favorite snake oil.

    Clean? I use a silicon cloth. I don't think it's ever seen a cleaning rod--I haven't and my father never did either. It shoots great. I do scrub out the action once every couple years.

    My smallbore rifle coach in college saw someone with a cleaning rod at the end of practice and just about tore the kid's head off. All the cleaning rods disappeared with him telling us that if we needed to clean the barrel, he'd let us know. It just isn't needed for .22's--wax from the bullets provides all the rust protection you need in most normal climates.

    Cleaning a 39 is easier than cleaning the gold standard of repeaters, the 10/22.

    I don't have any pics of mine. It's old, it's slick and it's accurate.

    I wouldn't trade it for another gun.

    dont have a dig camera but can tell you they are accurate and made from ALL steel and walnut furniture cept the buttspacers and pad...they are also kinda heavy.
    Ive got 2 right now..a 39A and 39M both original golden models and both accurate enough to hit anything within 75 yards easily...perhps farther but never tried.Ive added a variable 3-9x on my 39A but havent taken it out since messing up my back.
    if your thinking about getting one-get it.theyre good shooters.
