It’s a 10” 10/22 with a modified ProMag folding stock and a Spectre II silencer. It makes a great and very quiet package for small game or just shooting out the back door.
Looks like you set the rifle in the target stand, like you're getting ready to shoot it, but I know better.
I do like my Marlin 39A. It is built as a regular man sized rifle. The action is smooth and the feeding is flawless. The gun is inherently accurate and can hold 10 rounds +. With a scope I hit center bull on most every (always have to say most) shot at 50 yards.
I've got the same rifle, purchased in the mid 90's for $125. Still one of my all time favorite firearms.
The upper rifle appears to be an early 1700 rifle with the first trigger guard, they are rare and I find them much nicer then the later 1700 rifles, they were also available with the optional DST.

When I was a kid at camp, the man in the next camp had one of these and I really loved it, but never got to shoot it, mainly because I was only about 6 yrs. old at the time.
All you need is a good carry strap and checkmate squirrels!
….it’s a perfect rifle.
I still have yet to shoot my 10/22 that I slapped in a HTA bullpup kit
You guys just cost me $2,617!!! (tax included) While perusing a website gunstore, I fell in love with an Anschutz 1712 AV Silhouette and could not resist The Force!
It will arrive while I am travelling, so I will not see it for another 2 weeks or so......
Maybe it's Merry Christmas to me?
But is it perfect?
Merry Christmas indeed! The problem with buying an Anschutz rifle is simple to explain: One is never enough. Congratulations on your acquisition!
As you can see from the photo the blueing is worn off the bolt knob from me shooting it. The pictures don't do this gun justice. The trigger has no creep and is crisp as glass. And it will put ten shots inside a dime at 25 yards. The scope is a Leupold 2x7 rimfire. And it has a hand checkered metal butt plate.
I have many rifles and pistols but this Model 82 is by far my favorite.
…… well killin my savings account
……… I been checking out this thread now and again . Then wound up window shopping over at GunBroker. I stumbled across a newly refinished Marlin 39a with Ballard rifling ,and an “almost to reasonable to be true” Buy-it-Now price…… , and it just so happened that I knew a guy that worked at the Pawn/Gun shop that was selling it. I made a quick phone call and my buddy he knew the gunsmith that did the work and had handled this rifle himself. He also told me that his wife had already put the brakes on him buying it..
Sooooo my twisted brain said to me……… “ you have always told yourself that you wanted to be able to give each grandchild a 39a since they may grow up in a world where they are not available . Annnnnd with the birth of your latest grandson ( 9 months old) you now have one more grandchild than you do 39a’s??? “
You guessed it …… I hit the Buy-it-Now button I hope my grandson is smiling like this when hand it to him in a dozen or so years
I would bet on it!
…. Me too Poper……… me too
Hmmm, I'll have to ask a question back to you, does perfection exist and who decides?
