They are very good barrels with tight tolerances.
I gained about 15-20 points when I got mine.(I know you cannot buy points, but sometimes you can depending on what you had and what you have now).
Food for thought.

The two Clark barrels that I have seen and group tested have shot considerably better than the stock "newer" S&W barrels. We were getting 1 1/4 to 1 1/2" groups sandbaged at 50yds with red dot scope compared to 3-4" groups with the occasional wicked flyer from the stock barrels. The only thing I personally didn't like about the Clark barrel was the weight. They are lighter than the 5.5" Smith and I like the feel of the heavier gun. A cheaper way to improve accuracy of your 41 and another option is to have your Smith barrel relined with a Lothar Walther liner. I friend had one done by David Sams and it was supposed to be getting something like 3/4" groups at 50yds with CCI SV paper pack.

I have a 41 with a Clark, I had one with a Bully.

I think you will like either. They reduce the probability of a cross bolt jam to nearly zero, provide a better balance and in my opinion outshoot the original S&W barrel even using CCI SV.

Alex Hamilton of www.tenring.com has been relining S&W model 41 barrels for decades. He does exceptional work. I would have that done instead of a Clark barrel, if I were in your shoes.

Why do you think you need a new barrel? Have you found something wrong with the original?
