Default Model 41 Experts...Early 41 Barrel Cap/False Muzzle Question

Model 41 Experts,

A friend just acquired an Early "Boxed" Model 41 and is interested in knowing what all constitutes a Complete "As Shipped" Package!!

It has a 7 3/8" Barrel with Muzzle Brake attached & is mainly interested in knowing if a False Muzzle/Barrel Cap was "Factory" included when "Originally" shipped...Serial No. is 14542!!

Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated...Thanks in advance!!

Default SW 41 BARREL

The short answer is yes. As shipped, it came with both the muzzle brake and false muzzle.

My LNIB 7 3/8" Model 41 (mfg 1958) also came with the lighter aluminum barrel weight in addition to the heavy one which was installed.

Whether the aluminum one was originally included by S&W or added by the seller, I don't know.

A-37,

My Friend's Early 7 3/8" 41 came with both Barrel Weights (1 Alum. & 1 Steel)!!

Given that...Guess that poses another question...Did the Early Model 41 come with "Both"...Or only one?? If only one...Which one did it originally ship with??

As noted above, the 7 3/8" (brake) bbls were shipped with both a steel and aluminum weight (one installed) and a brake and FM (Brake on bbl) along with tool/cleaning kit, instruction folder, and some misc. papers. Re another post - have not seen any brakes or FMs that were not shiny black - unless cleaning removed the anodize finish. A few got out with no finish, but not issue.

Those serial no's given would make that a 1st year gun which is 1958 when it was produced. I have one older then that myself but never got the aluminum weight with it or the false nose cap as well. I now own the false nose which is on mine and I shoot it regularly with it as well. The muzzle brake is sitting in one of my gun safes where it can stay forever.

Default 41s

I don't believe the early model 41's came false muzzle cap. Purchased a few LNIB from original owners 4 digit models.

Smith fan is correct. The early model 41s did not come with a false muzzle... The false muzzle was introduced later in 1958. Masterpiece I would think your gun would have had the false muzzle included.
