The day that Shotgun News came I called and ordered. The L39's lasted a few days or a week. The L42's sold out to all the guys that get SN sent fedex or expressed. Saw Val at the Md MAC show and bought two L42's. One for $800 without the chest and $1200 (new rifle...) with the chest. The L59's lasted over a year, then sold to some school down south...This scan is from the 1994 Shotgun News depicting a Navy Arms ad for the newly imported L39, L42 and L59A1 (drill rifles). The prices were outrageous at the time but then times change.
