    I have a 1954 Marlin 39a and a 2006 Henry blued lever model (H001).

    I'm impressed by both.

    The Marlin is the standard, well made and slick action.

    The Henry is surprisingly close to the same quality. The wood is perfect, the action is as smooth and it's just as accurate. The only 'lesser' part is the cast receiver of the Henry, but the bluing is perfect and beautiful.

    Foe less than $300 new, the Henry is a bargain.

    I have been shooting a Marlin 39 since the early forties and wouldn't have any other.

    I have never had a jam or failure and have bagged a heap of rabbit, squirrel, rats and crows. That doesn't count the plinking done. Thousands and thousands of rounds since 1941 !!!!!!

    I really like my 10/22 but I wouldn't trade my Marlin 39A Golden Mountie for ten 10/22's.
