    If no prefix, or suffix, looks like ABOUT the late 1950's.

    Thanks for all the feedback. This was my father's gun which was handed down to me several years ago.

    For others wondering about the age of their Model 41, I found this table to be a big help:

    Thanks so much for the link. I just picked up a '41 and it is always nice to collect as much background information as possible
