Default a few project model 41's

Got to looking today at my 41's and realized I have a condition. Don't know the medical term but I think I have a severe case! Currently have 4 receivers and about 18 to 20 barrels...
My only use for them is Steel Challenge which I dearly love.

I don't see what you think your problem is. Nill grips? No problem. You don't even have putty on them yet.

Are you buying 22 ammo by lot number yet?

If you had obsessive-compulsive behavior you'd be shooting/reloading long range rifle.

Try these links:

Shooting Sports USA | Accurizing the S&W Model 41 "What follows is an account of a job where I upgraded a new S&W Model 41 .22-cal. semi-automatic pistol to match condition, for about half the total investment in a stock, high-end European match gun."

Shooting Sports USA - March 2013 See page 22

Other than having way too many sets of stocks that won't fit my "left" hand; I'd say you have a really nice group of Model 41's and appurtenances there MauleN12VR!

Default Long Range Rifle

"If you had obsessive-compulsive behavior you'd be shooting/reloading long range rifle. "

Now that you mention it, I DO have a couple of those. A 40X in 308 Win and a 700 in 6.5 x 47 Lapua. Both very heavily modified and both identical except for color of stock and caliber. McMillan A5 adjustable, Bartlein 5R barrels, Timney 8 oz triggers, Nightforce 14 x 42's and detachable magazine conversions. I use them to shoot F class.

Obviously an advanced case. But it's equally obvious there's no way in hell you're going to detox, so I guess you're just going to get worse. And worse. And worse.

Is there a source for the extended mag butt plates?? I remember looking once but was not successful. Thanks.

If you have a surplus set of Nill grips laying around, please let me know a few project model 41's.

And yes, you have a serious condition.

I don't see a problem or condition.
I have a few 41s and quite a few spare barrels, and lots more magazines and parts. And I don't see a problem, well other than I actually don't know how many I have last count was over 3 dozen

Sorry to hear that you're both "terminal" with no cure. I have a similar affliction; Chief Specials ( pre 36); no cure BTW your 41 malady is more attractive than mine

Pretty sure you have fewer barrels than your wife has shoes. So no problem.

My only obsession is with my 1962 Model 41 ship date and serial number verified with Roy Jinks before he retired. An original mint gem! Shoot it now and then lovingly!

Do you do your own machine work? I got to hold a Bob Loveless M41 with ventilated barrels. Got to bid on it too, but I had to stop and others kept going! lol Beautiful guns.

I do most of my own machine work. I have a mill and a lathe that I use for personal stuff. Just a hobby but I enjoy it. Eric at EWK arms does excellent work if you want to have one worked on. Thanks

Let’s see..... Hmmmm looks terminal to me unless you can get an injection of 41-1. That should go a long way to ease the stress and pain.

I know of No cure for this problem other then to have more then the other guy at the end. I would enjoy owning around 6 doz M41's. Should be enough to keep me going for a few weeks. Pic Big Grin here.

Who did the finish on the plated ones? Is it plating or Ceracoat?

Thanks

Here is pic of Loveless M41 with external hammer. Your vent rib barrels reminded me of his work. He thought the 41 was the perfect "field" pistol with a "few" of his modifications. Just like his knives, they are very expensive these days.

RELAX, YOUR CONDITION IS EASY ADDRESSED......

YOU MERELY NEED AT LEAST A DOZEN MORE RECEIVERS......

I MUST REMARK THAT THE PARTS THAT YOU DO HAVE ON HAND, ARE QUITE IMPRESSIVE---AS IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY. THANKS FOR SHARING.......
