    The Joy Of Shooting S&W Model 41

    Friends, Folks, Fellow Forum Members...Should you EVER want to get back to the PURE BASIC JOY of paper punching and "serious one hole plinking" buy yourself an older S&W Model 41...if you ever get the chance to snatch one up.
    They are just one of the greatest semi~auto pistols ever made.
    A S&W Model 41 & about 10 extra mags and a BRICK of .22 LR rimfire will put you right up there at the gates of heaven.
    The mags are a little pricey though.
    DEEP GLOSS BLUE - Deadly Accurate - Great Target Sights - Crisp Light Trigger - Flawless Functioning - Perfect balance.
    I still get goosebumps whenever I shoot one.
    YOU in combination with this firearm is just one of THE NICEST ways IN THE WORLD to spend a day for yourself.
    I grabbed this photo of a 41 off the web but, I'll post a pic of one of mine here tomorrow. Everybody should own one of these.

    Always liked them QK but - when it comes to what works and doesn't, when we do weekly pin or steel shoots, sad to say it has been the dear ol' 41 that has given some folks most grief.

    True enough - we all have problems now and again but - comparing relative costs, the old solid Ruger has probably got the stage. Buckmarks close to that a few Neos.

    I'll counter that tho by saying (admitting!) that when I have shot with a 41 that was performing just fine - there are not many guns that feel so good - only maybe a Walther GSP I used to have for bullseye ... long ago!

    Ah, the old 41. One of the first target shooters I ever used. Couldn't afford 1 at 18, so I settled for a Buckmark. Still, the 41 holds a special place with me , along with the M1 Garand.

    I have two & am thinking about buying another 41 to have it scope mounted.
    Both of mine have always been function perfect except when shooting the ol' "Stingers" & a couple of other HYPER Velocity .22s which used to goof them up.
    It's just one of my all~time favorite pistols. Of course everyone always loves any firearm that is accurate and goes bang for them every time they pull the trigger.
    I like the Rugers but the trigger is not quite as good.
    A "trigger tuned" Ruger .22 would be nice though...but, sadly the Classic BuckMark felt like it never fit my particular hand 100% ~ It's a SUPER nice "Great Working" pistol though.
