Cricker,

if it is a 39-2, then it is either blued steel slide/anodized alloy frame or nickel finish; there were some original model 39s (not -2) that were steel framed, very rare.

The first stainless steel 39 series was the 639 they came out in 1984, they had the protective wings on the rear sights.

The third generation when model went to 4 digits (3900 series) came around 1988, of these the 3906 (#6 denoting ss) was made of stainless steel.

Hope this helps
