Default Production years and quantities of 41's?

Is there a listing of the manufacturing years and possibly the amount of Model 41 pistols that have been made since production started? I tried searching here but wasn't doing something correctly because I never seemed to find it. Thanks in advance for any help.

The SCSW would be able to tell what year the model 41 started BUT only the 'mothership' could come up with production quantities.

This firearm is still in production

There are no such records in existence tracking production by year, nor is there a grand total to date

Smith & Wesson has always considered themselves a tool maker and not a collectibles company

So unfortunately the records prior to computerization of the factory in the 1980s are poor and the records since then are not detailed enough to make most collectors happy

That is so very unfortunately true and not only prior to computerization as you pointed out. It still happened AFTER. Much after.

Roy explained it extremely well in a reply to an email I got from him questioning the factory letter I got. (Sorry about the crudeness of my “masking”.)

OK gentlemen. Thanks very much for the feedback. I was afraid that might be the case.
