I'll post pics soon...right now I'm not sure what to do with it. I was anxious to take it to the range, but after finding out all this, I'd hate to shoot up such a nice find.

Thanks for any help and thanks to all of you for helping me find my dream shooter...even if I'm afraid to 'shoot-'er'.

Here are the pics - sorry...not very good pics and they don't do her justice, but I think she's still a beauty.







Thanks for any feedback!

Well today was the day!!!

A week of so back I went to Gander Mountain (major sporting goods retailer here) and saw a M41 in the used gun case. I had to look at her right away! The salesman said that it just came in and also came with an extra barrel. He added that he was considering buying it, but got a Buckmark instead. He was about to put it away, but I had to say "ring her up!".

Here's the beauty of this one:

Ken, I'd say you did pretty well! I would've been all over that one. The 5.5" EFS and 5" Field barrels are worth $300+ each. The "white lettering" is not factory, someone just added some paint to make the letters stand out and this can be removed if desired. Good luck and I hope she shoots as good as she looks! Now it's time to accessorize!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!

You should be proud of such a GREAT collection...I am very envious! Thanks for the info!

I actually took the 41 out to the indoor range early this morning with the efs barrel using Walmart Remington Target ammo (~$8 for 100) and she is the finest gun I've shot yet.

My eyes are too old for iron sights, so it was a real struggle trying to focus, but I managed this group at ~25ft/8.5yds off a small sandbag.



I'd say she's a keeper! I'll try to get a newer barrel so that I can get a red dot on it without ruining the two I have. It's so nice to finally be in the club!

Hi all, I just got lucky with one of these guns and would like to get some more info about. the Serial is A6466XX Can you tell me what year it was made and anything significant I should know about it? I haven't had a chance to take it to the range yet, but got it for $375 with 500 rounds of ammo. I would say it's in 98% condition, beautiful blue and 1 minor nick exactly where the slide stop is when cocked.

Picked up my first 41 today. A shooter grade A135xxx. I believe it's 40 years old.

I bought one (new) in 1969 with serial number 123XXX. I competed with it for many years and still shoot whenever I'm home. I've never had a problem with it, it one of my favorite guns. Enjoy yours!!!

I have Model 42 serial number A40403. See my thread about the "A" prefix being before S&W supposedly started using the "A" prefix. A member suggested this my be S&W's way of designating a duplicate serial number.

My gun is the 7 3/8" barrel, with muzzle brake, muzzle cap in a small brown envelope, has the early type rear sight non-dovetail, and a vertical line on the left side of the barrel just back of the muzzle which I'm told is an indexing mark for a positioning a barrel weight. However, I do not have the barrel weight. My gun came with a sales receipt dated 1963. Any ideas regarding the serial number and date of manufacture? Sorry, I don't have the capability to post pictures. I'm working on that short coming. Thanks.

Sorry, a slip of the typing finger. My gun is a Model 41 not a 42.

Smile Model 46

I fired my new to me model 46 to-day for the 1st time as I received it only yesterday. Its a cheaper version of the 41. I am amazed as I can nail either Bulls or 10's all day with ease with it every time. The trigger feel is identical to a 41 as I fired one on Thursday night which belongs to my club. My gun has the small metal weight on it at the front but not the other 2 optional ones that hang under it. No box or paperwork but it sure shoots really sweet. The serial no. for it is 45427 which I believe is around 1963. I am turning green with seeing all the 41's in this thread. They certainly are beautiful for sure.

gobbler - 1961 SN, but since not in actual sequence for finishing or shipping - Jinks is the GURU. As noted, the verticle mark on the bbl is a mark for positioning the upper piece of the 3 piece weight set consistantly. As noted elsewhere, the "A" indicates a duplicate correction

Hello All!

I figured I would do my part to keep this thread alive by posting my first Model 41. This is a 4 digit serial number from 1957 or 1958 . I just picked up an old (not as old as the gun but an earlier oner I think) 5" field barrel. I don't know if the number on the bottom the barrel really means anything, but the 5" has a 2 stamped on it. The 7 3/8" has an S (not a 5 but a curvy S) stamped on the bottom.

Default Model 41 pics

Here's one I purchased a while back, used but in excellent condition, serial TFM04xx. Not sure of it's age...included were both barrels (7 & 5.5), seven mags, orig box and cleaning stuff...haven't seen a scope mount base like this before, full length of the bbl and recessed front and rear to fit over the sights, anyone recognize this mount?

Thanks in advance, great forum here!

Ron

Default My new 41

Saw all the 41 pictures and thought I'd add mine. After bouncing around the post office for a week, it was finally delivered today. Can't shoot it until the weekend but the gun feels great and is well balanced. I have been shooting the same High Standard HD Military for 50 years and decided to retire it. Looked at the Ruger 22-45, used HS Trophy, Hammerli. Realized all would have to be tweaked to shoot Bullseye. So I ended up with the 41. I believe mine was made in 1978. Is dry-firing a no-no? Don't like the idea of the firing pin spring always being compressed.

With modern rimfire firearms, I don't worry much about it, although there's always the chance that mis-fitting or wear could allow the firing pin to strike the edge of the chamber. For dry-fire practice, a fired case in the chamber works, but is awkward.

To guard against the possibility of chamber damage, before I put the gun away, I check to be sure there's no round in the chamber, then retract the slide just a tiny bit (just barely enough to release the disconnector), and at the same time pull the trigger to release the hammer and ease tension on the hammer spring. This works with almost any semiauto rimfire.

Here is my S&W Model 41, it was made in 1960. I have scoped both the 7 3/8" barrel (bought the gun with barrel tapped already) and 7". I use the 5.5" heavy barrel for iron sights only it is not tapped. Love the gun.

Great thread with a lot of good looking 41s. I like em' all. This here one should letter to 1957 if I get around to requesting one. Serial number 331X. 100 percent. No box.

Here's one you won't find on every table at the show. Dangdest Model 41 I ever did see. Feels good in the hand. Handy, but solid and steady. Last photo is with the early gun with the long tube for comparison.

'97 model with a new 7" barrel assembly from Smith, got it used for an excellent deal and I've been shooting it with no feeding issues whatsoever (to date, knock wood). I started with HV ammo and just started feeding CCI SV's and it's great, and talk about accurate and unreal trigger pull!

I just added the Hogue grips, the next shot is of it running HV ammo and me trying to get used to red dot's with both eyes opened again, ugh!

I was happy to find this A-prefix Model 41 recently. It is about 30 years old and came with 2 barrels, one of which is tapped with a rail. i was looking for a shooter that I could use for Bullseye and this will fill the bill nicely.

Well, I certainly can't compete with all of these beauties, but here's mine anyway. I like to shoot the plate racks at my club from 25 yards. I can mow 'em down fast, ten straight 'til the mag runs dry. Sure wish I could find some high cap mags, since there are two racks of six and I always leave two standing!

Mine is an early 1980s model. I'm keeping an eye out for a long barrel.

I bought this one new in 1976. It's killed a zillion golf balls (for $) a pickup load of Ground Squirrels and 100s of Jack Rabbits.

This Model 41 left the factory in May, 1972. It has the old-style long barrel, compensator and cocking indicator.

I have 1 model 41 and 3 model 46's. Such a pain to post pictures so use your imagination.
41 is 7 3/8's (no brake but has cap) in the box with 2 mags (about 98% condition).
one 46 has two barrels. One is 5.5 and other is 7. The 7 inch was purchased at a gun show for $100.00 (about 95% condition).
one is 5.5 inch, and is purported to have come from the factory with laminated grips (as plastic were no longer available). Still kinda looking for plastic grips at a reasonable price, too.
one is 7 inch.

I have been shooting this for 53 years- 100,000+ rounds. Recently upgraded with a Clark 6.5" STC barrel. The trophies go back to the early 70's, when I could shoot a 10 or two. Ironically, Blackinton chose a Hi-Standard for their cast lucite awards. At 75, I still shoot weekly gallery matches.

If you are referring to the one I posted with the purple background in the photo, I paid $600 for it back in 2005. In seven years, it has probably appreciated quite a bit; I'd guess in today's dollars if I wanted to sell it (which I don't), it should go between $850 and $1000. That would include the original factory box, spare magazine, etc.

As always, the price depends on what the owner is willing to sell it for, and what the buyer is willing to pay. Mileage varies.

All the pics of these beautiful 41s is making me envious. I have been looking to purchase a 51/2" new or used for time with no luck. I have tried GunBroker etc. but have not had any luck to date. I WILL have one as I am staying on the hunt. Great photos guys.

My lone M-41 a five digit gun shipped in 1958 IIRC. Wish I could say it's an ultra rare stainless model, but it's been refinished in Armalloy. The previous owner left it in a cold vehicle one Montana winter, then took it in a warm house, in it's foam lined case. Then never checked on it for several weeks. Needless to say it had rusted rather badly. You can see some pitting on the bbl in the middle.

He had a competant Smith take it down, it was refinished and new rear sights installed. I bought it maybe five or six years ago for a bargain price.

It came with three barrels, the Olympic weight set, several new magazines, and a fairly current 2 moa red dot that I still use on one of the 7" barrels for gophers.

Typical of all of them it's super accurate.
