I would like some feedback on the .22cal Smith & Wesson model 41. How good does this rimfire semi-auto shoot? what kind of ammo does it like? If anybody ownes one please, please give me some input on this Model.
I have had my M41 for about 10 years now. It shoot everything fairly well, but really shines with match ammo, like Eley or Gold Medal. I put more rounds through this gun each year than both my .45's combined. I love it.
The only thing I don't like about it is the magazines are always needing to be reloaded.
I've had my 41 since the 70s, used it for .22 pistol competition when I was captain of the company pistol team. It bumped my HiStandard as my favorite pistol for competition. I shot Remington standard velocity rounds in it.
Nothing to add to what these guys have already said. Owned a Model 52 along with a Model 41 and a Gold Cup all at the same time years ago. Kept the Gold Cup. Wish I had kept the other two along with it.
When S&W did their sell out stunt, I got so mad that I sold all of my S&W guns including a M41. It was a very accurate gun that I had only owned for about a year. My M41 had many misfires with cheap 22 ammo of various brands. It shot flawlessly with CCI Minimags. My Buckmark had no misfires with any of the various kinds of ammo. Perhaps the M41 had a minor firing pin problem or something. I'm still mad at S&W. I won't own any of their guns even if they are "pre-agreement". That's just me. Watch-Six
Get your 1911s and AR15s while you still can!
Well, you guys have done it to me. Peaked my interest in the S&W M-41. I just sold a Sig-Hammerle Trail Slide. Nice gun, but no history and pretty sterile. Have a beatiful Browning Medalist, unfired in wood case. I admire it once in a while but haven't shot it.
Just bought an early 80's M-41 7" today, 99 per cent gun, from the original owner mainly because of all the rave reviews here. Won't have it for a week or so while we wait for the check to clear and the FFL to arrive etc. I will shoot this one.
I have got to quit reading all of these threads while I still have some assets other than guns! Anyone know if there is a support group out there for us addicts?
