Model 41 barrel, crown problem Empty Model 41 barrel, crown problem

Late last night I was looking at my spare 41 barrel and I saw something weird on the crown. Has anyone seen something like this before? It almost looks like whatever they used to cut the crown was chattering. I have seen something like this on my drill press when half the drill was sharp but the other side was dragging. Or, maybe it is something else that you have seen before???

Sure does look like chatter. like you'd get from a chamfering tool rather than lathe cut.
If you have the resources, it wouldn't hurt to have that recut concentric to the bore anyway.

How's it shoot? might not be an issue.

Hello,

There's so much schmutz and shadowing, it's hard to see anything in the photograph.  I'm with Jim, how does it shoot?

It never shot as good of scores as my older 41 one so I never shot it much. I plan on taking it to the range this week and bench it. I never benched it before because I didn't think I had too. Looking at it I suspect the crown and not the shorter barrel might be why it didn't shoot as good in my hand. It is also a lot more barrel heavy then my older 41. There was enough difference in feel between the two I never looked for another cause. Now I will. Hard pictures to get in focus

One option is reline.

Always wanted to convert a 41 to 32 acp. You mean you haven't wanted a 41 in that caliber?

Got bored. Pun intended. Did not make it to the range. Only made it as far as the shop. It really is centered. The camera angle is making it look off center.

Looks nice Len, all you had to do was dip a Qtip in some dirt, then chuck it in drill, and spin it in the muzzle!  lol!

July 8th to Aug 8th. No one is going to accuse me of rushing things. I had an eye appointment in the same town as my range today and finally remembered to grab this barrel. In retrospect I should have went shooting before the eye appointment. I do not recommend trying to shoot with your eyes dilated. Focus on the target? Nope. Focus on the dot? Which one? I just accepted what I had and fired 10 rounds. The dot on this scope also has cross hairs so that helped. It wasn't 10x but I think on a different day it might have been. I think this would work.

I have heard that you can convert a 41 to 32 but have never seen it. 


I too like the 7 inch better than the Bull Barrel.

Len,
At 25 yrds a good M41 barrel should make one ragged hole. At the recoomendation of KC Crawford, I had Alex Hamilton at Ten Ring Precision reline my 41. It now shoots half inch groups at 50 yards with Eley Target ammo.
