Regards Chuck Smith Chuck Smith; You are correct about the vintage of your Marlin Model 39-A. There is a thread somewhere on here that gives about all the serial number information if you want to do a "SEARCH" for it.It will give all the letter gun production dates as well as how to determine year of manufacture after the letter gun ceased.Two 1895's converted to .50 Alaskan One .444 Marlin One 336 Cowboy .30-30 Two 336 Cowboy .38/55's One 336 .35 Remington pre-safety that has been cut down to 16-1/2" barrel One 336T .30-30 pre-safety One 336 .30-30 saddle ring straight grip rifle One 336ER .356 Winchester One 336 .44 Magnum One 36A rifle .32 Winchester I may have forgotten one or two, but this is a fair representation of what I currently own and shoot.Again, thanks for all the information available here.[The following information is taken from the Ruger #1 Product History web page.] The chart shows the approximate first serial number shipped for the indicated year.This number should be used as a point of reference only.Looks like a nice start to a fine Marlin rifle collection by the way. Thanks so much for your reply:} I am quite fond of Marlin leverguns and at 44 years of age have obtained a few over the years.I also collect and shoot Ruger and S&W revolvers as well.
This can lead to confusion if you come into possession of a Ruger firearm and wish to know the date of its production.
Running a close second in popularity to "When was my Ruger made?
" is the next question that naturally follows: "What is my Ruger worth?
I was mainly just curious as to its vintage, but that was just as I stated for curiosity purposes.
I own several Marlin leverguns, actually more than I can remember at this time.
