Model 41 question

Post by lablover on Thu Nov 23, 2017 11:15 am

First topic message reminder :

Really getting into rimfire and was looking at a S&W 41  Is it advised to stay away from the newer ones?  If one was to get a new one what version?  Just kind of putting feelers out.  I'd love to be able to use a dot as well.

Thanks Gents and Happy Thanksgiving

When I first started bullseye in 1997, I bought a 41 as Texas high standards the team had were... less than desirable. For four years I shot it vitabo grip, red dot sight, couldn't break 810 with it.  The wife mentioned she might like to try bullseye so I bought a buckmark. I threw a dot on it and shot an 855, with sighters. I still have the buckmark, the 41 left soon after I bench rested it and it wouldn't hold the 8 ring at 50 yards. With any ammo.

I have a 1977ish 41 with 2 barrels.  The original barrel a 5.5", would scatter shots at 50 feet.  Eley scattered the least, CCI key holed at 50 feet.  I had Alex reline it and all is very well.  The other barrel is from Gil Hebard.  It is the type that had the Millett sight.  It was a 7".  Now it is cut to 5.5".  I arm rested it and got a 1/2" group at 50yds with the old 900B ammo.

So you never can tell about a barrel or ammo without trying.

Just bought a model 41 performance center model - and it’s been dead on right out of the box. 250 rounds of cci std through her without a cleaning and not a hiccup....  I had bought one a long time ago and got rid of it because it was a jam o matic but ...heard good things about the newer pc model and wanted one because they’re accurate and I love the feel of them... also I learned that David Sams can and does make these guns sing if they need a tune up - Sams custom gun works will make them reliable and even reline the barrel if need be... so take the leap but try the pc model .... it’s not as smooth as my aw93 but it is a really sweet gun and feels like my Center fire 1911 ... plus I hate a conversion - taking a perfectly great 45 down to shoot 22 .. plastic mags ... ugh ...
