Newly acquired S&W Model 41... Wow

My newly acquired Smith & Wesson Model 41

Paper work says it was made in 2003.  Other than missing a rear sight, and an oddball pair of grip screws it is nearly perfect.  Just a bit of dirt, like it had been fired just a few magazines ever, and I got it for a steal.

And the WOW part is that I now know what a real trigger feels like.  I am simply blown away at just how crisp the trigger feels on this gun.  Can't wait to get it to the range.



Just had to share!

Bust out a good optic on it and go play.

Nice! I got one (1977 vintage) a few months ago. One of the best. They seem to be finicky about what ammo they like, so trying out different kinds is a good idea. Mine is ok with CCI, but it really likes Eley. That figure$.

Congrats! Mine loved CCI SV and Aguila but would FTE the Federal Automatch that a few others have had success with.

I had a beautiful 41 from the late 70's, had the best trigger I had felt to date when I bought it. Loved the pistol but it stovepiped too much, the Volquartsen exact edge extractor helped but still had issues. I sold it and bought a Sig 1911 that I had worked over by an old Colt Custom shop smith with all new ignition parts, paired it with a Nelson conversion and haven't looked back. Sometimes I miss the 41 but not the alabai's.

Just out at the range and after 3 clicks down and 3 left to zero it shot 10 in a 2 inch dot at 50ft with my standard Aquila high velocity stuff. I think it will work just fine :grin

Try it with some STD Velocity ammo.  And shoot it at 25 yards.

The 41 is a really nice weapon! I prefer it over my Nelson.
