I agree. Mine is newer (1976) I bought new in 77. The target picture is from 50 yards using a Weaver K-4 over a bag rest. The rounds in the bull were Rem Golden bullets.

I took a 2 to 7 Vari-X 2 off mine and put a Millet red dot on it.
It's faster for squirrels stealing my pecans, and neighbors "stray cats".😁
Right after I posted this, I switched my 1958 Golden 39A to a TRS-25 red dot.
Much better site, and much faster.

Red dots have there place. Have a low end Simmons on a Winchester 94 Trapper in .357. Works just fine in that application.

Seems like all you guys had better luck with the Mounties. I bought one in 1971. It wasn't accurate enough to shoot rats at 40 yards. Sold it and got a 39. It does the job quite well.
