While I am a fan of older Marlin 39a's, I cannot recommend anyone buying a current Remlin (Remington-made Marlin) - nor would I buy one myself, at any price.

I've also owned a Frontier, and while mine was a nice rifle, I preferred my Standard H001 Henry to the Frontier (YMMV), since it was lighter, handier - yet operated just as smoothly & accurately.

A far better made (and quality), and also much more accurate, rifle would be a pre-safety Marlin 39a - many of which can be found in "as NIB" condition at several online sources.
