    Had this gun most of my life. My grandfather traded for it back in the 50's-60. Looking for an accurate value, and how to know the year of production. The last time it was fired was at least 30 years ago. Still seems to be in decent condition but I don't dare fire modern ammo in it. 20190905_164217.jpg 20190905_161019.jpg

    I doubt that standard 22lr ammo would hurt it a bit. MGO as Don suggested is a good idea and Rimfire Central would probably be even better, it tends to attract the hardcore rimfire guys from around the country. GunBoards.com is another site that attracts a lot of knowledgeable collectors.

    I picked up a 39A some years ago on the cheap - as it had seen hard use.

    I shoot it regularly and am very pleased with it. Accurate and flawlessly functional. An added bonus - it feeds CB caps as well as short and LR cartridges.

    It's the best squirrel rifle I have ever used and using CB caps hearing protectionis not needed.

    Enjoy yours.
