Default 1953 Marlin 39A Mountie

Picked this up a little over a week ago while in Maine just happened to have a copy of my C&R license with me. UPS dropped her off at my house yesterday afternoon.

This is the first year the Mountie was made (no pistol grip)1953 and the only year it was made with a 24" barrel just over 4K of these made that year. The 53 Mountie's are highly collectible and extremely rare. Shoots .22 shorts, longs or LR. These Marlins are super accurate super fun lever action .22's loosen the big screw and it takes down in seconds and can be fit in a backpack. This one is in excellent condition about 95%

I thought the Mountie versions were the carbines? 16" barrel length? That's the ones I'd like to get my hands on.

The mounties have a 20" barrel other than the 1953 1st year mounties that have a 24" barrel.

The straight stock or lack of pistol grip is what makes a Mountie a Mountie not the barrel length as far as I know and I am a long ways from a expert on them.

I would think a 16" barrel would make it a SBR ? and need a tax stamp but not sure.

NICE!

No, it would have to have a less than 16" barrel (as measured from the closed, ready to fire (but with an empty chamber) breech face to the muzzle ) to be a SBR, or an overall length of less than 26 inches to be a SBR and require the tax stamp.
