The 41 is getting hard to find in great shape & below $1000.00.
I "stumbled" into a nice Model 41 yesterday.. I was selling a very nice 1975 Marlin 39 (original golden), asking $550.00 and the gentleman who came to see it asked me if I had any interest in a "trade"..
My initial response was "no thanks", but then I said what do you have?
When he said a S&W Model 41 I was quick to tell him to bring it along and we'd "see"..
He liked my Marlin 39A, and I was pretty taken with his Model 41, so after we shot both (I have a private range on our property) we decided an equal trade would make us both happy, so we traded, even.
He was the original owner, and has the original box (which he will bring me when he comes over the weekend so we can do a little plinking together).
I've been shooting the Model 41 off and on all day, it it's "sweet"..... I really like it, and the only rimfire target pistol I've ever had to compare it to was a High Standard (Hamden) Match Trophy a couple of decades ago, and I already know I like the Model 41 better.
So, a good horse trade... He's happy, I'm more than happy...
I paid $450.00 for the rifle two years ago, was willing to part with it for $550.00, so I'd say I have $550.00 in a very nice Model 41.
P.S. My serial number is: 775XX Any clue as to born on date?
