That is a chunk of change! What are they claiming the accuracy to be?

I have had model 41's and they are not bad 22's, just did not work well for me. I wonder if this is new and better?

The 41 is a great platform...but always needs upgraded with quality barrel work. Lothar Walther, Shilen or Lilja..

Which kind of negates any value to an optic ready original barrel, doesn't it?

Gussied up 41s

When they came out with their astronomically priced 50th Ann. I was wondering about any accuracy claims. There weren't any beyond the std 41.

This optics ready offering, to my knowledge, doesn't say a word about any special treatment to enhance accuracy either. If that has changed and I am wrong, please correct me.

For my $$, a Clark bbl would be a better option as well as cheaper and more accurate or else having it relined by Ten Ring. I'm shooting a Clark now on my 41.

Hello Ed, long time no see..SmileSmile

At one time, I made 41 barrels from scratch.. It is better to reline them. The liner floats in a stress free state, and shoot more accurately than solid barrels. The 41 barrel is highly stressed from all the various machine cuts, plus, they are a nightmare to make. The liner is the way to go.

I know this is a stupid question, BUT, who re-lines 41 barrels and what is the process and approx. price for doing it?

I purchased a NIB 41 with the 5.5 Heavy and then came across a used (badly) and re-finished (even more badly) 5.5 Heavy (free) that I was thinking of having re-lined and re-finished.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. FYI, I am a newby and trying to grip on this "Bullseye" shooting.

Thanks, everybody for your help.

Alex Hamilton at 10-ring precision relines model 41 barrels. I can't remember what he charges but it's reasonable. tenring.com

I have a buddy who just got one back from David Samms http://www.samscustomgunworksusa.com/homepage.html. It was relined with a Lothar Walther liner. 50yd 10 shot group with CCI 0035 looked to be about 1/2 Xring. Same barrel would barely hold 10 ring before. The Clark barrels shoot very good but to me feel too light. I like the feel of the 5.5" Smith barrel and re-lineing preserves that feel. If I didn't have the set-up I do know that is the way I would go. I also called Ten Ring Precision http://tenring.com/ and talked to them about re-lining one of mine.

I just happen to be selling a Model 41 that has had the barrel relined by Alex Hamilton, as described by Jerry Keefer in this thread. It is listed on the Commercial Row section of this site at:

Take a look. PM me if you have other questions, or would like other photos.
