Default Smith and Wesson Model 41

Here's a piece that many think to be the paragon of .22lr pistols. Worthy of the title "Scarto," here's the Model 41 that I bought from another Calgunner. 7 inch barrel D&T with mount and 5 magazines. I will probably remove the mount and keep it off until I get my mitts on an optic.



I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I know there's something special about this pistol just from handling it.

Nice, good pickup, there's something special about it alright. A 41 is on my short list of guns to get. Been looking for a nice 5.5" for a while now.

Beautiful! My father has two, one in stainless and the other in blue. AMAZING trigger. Enjoy it!

I love the 41! A 7'' with an extra 5.5'' barrel from Clarks Custom with a dot sight is on my short list.

I'm pretty certain the 41 was never made in stainless. Not sure it was ever nickel plated, unless it was aftermarket. You may be thinking of another gun.
