Sorry, my email provider is kaput at the moment. I tried to reply to your message, but don't know if it made the trip or not.
Basically the priority of my interests are:
1. Older Marlin 39A in good shape at a fair price.
2. Belgian Browning SA22 (ATD), at a fair price.
I have a pristine 1996 39A, and two Japanese (Miroku) SA22's now, and being old and poor I can only afford another one or two more of these rimfires, so want to be patient and try and find the best examples I can for the least money..
(And of course the sellers want to sell the worse example for the most money), but that's fair.) :sly:
It's just called "horse tradin'".. :righton:
So, please keep your eyes out for an older 39A, or a Belgian SA22 that might be affordable.
