    well i agreed in principle tonight to a swap of my '56 Marlin 39A Mounty topped with a similar vintage Unterl Hawk Scope (4x) for a CZ American in .17hmr and an advanced trigger job. ok plus 50.00 on my part. what do you all think?

    As much as I like the CZs, (the last two rifles I've bought have been 527s), I'd think again about throwing in any 'boot' for the American. Marlins have gone up in value lately, especially the pre-safety models. Even the new Marlins retail for a good deal more than the 452s. If you like the rifle, though, and think you'd be happy, go for it, but I wouldn't toss in any 'boot' unless your gun is pretty beat up(it happens!).

    Too much "boot" IMHO.
    The 28th edition of "The Gun Trader's Guide" lists the Model 39A like yours:
    EX- $788.00
    Good- $541.00
    Maybe you need to ask for "boot"!

    Ok, I missed the "Mountie" designation. Sorry. $319.00-$379.00 is the value. The above value was for the regular 39A. I apoligise.

    i thought the mounty version went for more $$, they are getting harder to find every day. i'll be danged. anyway the guy just backed out of the trade so i just contacted the other guy to see if he still wanted to buy it for cash.

    Remember these are "trade" values and gun stores my have different prices.

    NICE little Marlin there, Jim! Heck, I'd hang onto it, and save my pennies for the CZ, then you could have both. Mounties aren't around any more, and they are pretty darned nice little guns, as you know.

    Glen i realy wamt to hang on to it but i gots a hard-on for a .17 hmr. and my tax return ended up being half of what i expected. we made just a few dollars more then we needed to and it put us into the next "drop-your-soap bracket". i aint ****ten ya, if i hadn't worked a few of those O.T. weekends i'd have an extra 2,500.00 on my return.
