Hello All.

I would like to know who else owns a model 41 pistol, I do not see much information on this form, just like to know how the ones that own one like them, I will be picking mine up next week?

normamag has one from the 70's. Looks like a ball to shoot!
Congratulations on the acquisition!

I bought two of them last year and have a short and long barrel.I had never shot one before and was amazed with the them.Every one has that one gun they have had forever that just seems to be a part of you that you cannot miss with.
To me a 41 instantly jumps to that feeling from the first round.
Its like they have a smart bullet in them that finds the target its self.The feel of them in your hand,balance and the trigger pull all seem to be perfectly alighned into a fasinating little pistol I wish I had bought one many years ago.
They are a target pistol but are good for hunting small critters to and you can buy a field barrel for them and change a barrel in about a minute.
There is a company called clark that makes different styles of barrels for them if you get into them.Of course if you want to get into the serious target shooting there are weights and big target grips you can buy for them to.
I am a hunter and a plinker to keep my shooting skills up and get my jollys and they realy enhance that for me.
They have been around for a long time and there is a lot of imformation on them to be surfed up. I hope you like yours as much as I like mine.

I have a M-46 (the 'low-rent' version of the M-41) and it's everything onenut58 describes.
Never owned an auto-pistol that points and shoots so accurately!
I put a recoil snubber in mine...it seems to stabilize the point-of-aim during rapid-fire target shooting.
You're fortunate to have that M-41.

Yes I am very lucky the man had traded his in on a colt 45, he was older man, this pistol looks like it never came out of the box. The dealer said it has had 10 rounds though the pistol. With the serial # starting with TFMOxxx someone said it might be a 1989 or 1990 model, either way it looks brand new, I paid $670.00 for the gun I think I got a good deal.

Hope to talking with you all again.

After many years of looking at Model 41s and thinking that they were beautiful but oh so expensive I finally took the plunge a couple years ago and purchased one. It had both the 5 1/2" and 7" barrel. The 7" barrel had been drilled and tapped for a red dot scope. I am really pleased with it.

My 41 is boringly accurate and reliable with CCI Standard Velocity (which S&W recommends). I have malfunctions with HV ammo.

Here is mine that I lucked into a few years ago. It is really a terrific shooter.

I have one of the older ones with the extendible front sight.It would take major bucks to get it from me.When you find ammo that they like, they are a delight to shoot. Mine has a bad habit of shooting in the same hole.I highly reccomend them.
