46k should put this one to early-mid 60's. Not a safe queen but pretty nice.

Just like my Father's...... he shot it once or twice a week shooting with the Department's Pistol Team...... #41xxx .... IIRC 1962

He let me take it to College and I'd shoot it after Rifle Team practice.............

Still have it tucked away

Early sixties is my best guess. I have #76xxx that I believe is from Dec 1965 based on close serial numbers that have been lettered and posted here.

Love my M41 and I hope you enjoy that beauty of yours as much as I do mine. Now go and burn up some 22 ammo!

I have a 489xx that I’m going to part with on here soon as I can decide on a price.

I would narrow it to late 63 or early 64.

Did a quick function test at the local range. Only had time to run one mag through it at 5 yards.

These old guns will shoot. Young eyes help a lot.

I had one that was purchased in 1969...I'm an idiot for ever selling it!
5.5" Bull barrel with extendable front sight. Not even available any more!

Everyone needs a pistol that shoots like a rifle (well sort of), if I live to retirement I may need to get one.

Anyone have a value for a 1964 41 with compensator, false muzzle cap and a later 5 1/2” barrel with a Ultra Dot mounted and 3-4 correct steel follower magazines? I just don’t shoot it anymore and someone should enjoy this fine pistol. Thanks

I own a 1st year issue M41 which still shoots as good as the day it was produced. I am also lucky to have a nice M46 as a backup in case the 41 gets sick. It has dust on it from sitting as the 41 is so reliable.
