Identify Marlin 39a "p" prefix mounty

Post by Lancer40 » Thu Aug 10, 2017 5:16 pm

I have a P prefix (1956) 20 inch, round barrel, straight stock 39a. Fits the description of a mountie, but rollmarks only indicate 39a. Not Mountie or M. Is it a Mountie?
When did Marlin begin designating as M or Mountie?
Thanks

Lancer40;

The barrel marking changed to "Golden 39A-Mountie" in 1957. The 39A-Mountie changed to just 39M in 1972.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.

If the world was perfect.......it wouldn't be.

Thank you very much. The answer should have been obvious, I just wasn't sure. Thanks again.
