Smith and Wesson model 41

#1 Post by Mustang » Fri Aug 03, 2018 8:46 pm

I've been looking for a nice small bore target pistol to compete with my wife's High Standard Victor. One model of particular interest has been the S&W model 41 and I finally found one for a decent price.

It arrived at my FFL's today and I grabbed a few pictures before it went into the safe for the obligatory 10 "cooling-off" period.

Yeah, super nice. Is it better than the High Standard? This begs for a comparison review.

Very nice! Do you know what year it was made?

I shot 2 S&W Model 41's at our last LGC Outing, they sure are nice pistols.

Glad to hear that. I'll post better pics and a range report after I've "cooled off".

I shot Huck's S&W 41 at a gathering and was stunned by the trigger. Lighter than anything I've ever shot yet very precise and consistent break. An amazing target gun.

Since a shoot off between the HS Victor and the S&W model 41 is already in the offing, I might have to make it a 3-way shoot off and include an S&W .22 Outdoorsman that I have.
