    I have a Red Dot scope on it now but the new Red Dot is not holding ). It is going back to the factory for replacement.
    I am in the process of buying a scope for the model 41. I want one from 2x to 6 or 8x. I am looking for a shorter scope but not having much luck. Currently I am looking at two totally different scope on both price and ability.
    Here they are.
    1st is a Bushnell Elite 2-6x32, seems to be an excellent scope but it is 9.5" long very long for a hand gun. the whole gun I believe is around 10.5"

    2nd is a Konus 2-8x28, it is very cheap and don't know how it will hold up but the size is the smallest I have found at 8.4" I lik ethe looks but don't know about this one.

    I believe I would be happier with the Burris as far as quality just don't know about function.
    What scopes do you have on you're model 41 S&W. please let me know.
  2. Whimper, sacrilege I say, sacrilege.

    Sorry no help from me but goodness gracious a scope on a 41? :eek:

    OldGrump I have two barrels a 7 3/8" and a 5.5". My eye's are not what they used too be. I like the precision part of shooting also. 1 barrel will be scoped the other will be iron sights for right now.
  4. I figured something like that and I too have both barrels. Have had my gun since 73 and been to a lot of competitions and done a lot of hunting with it but I just can't get my head wrapped around a scope for that particular gun even with my old eyeballs.

    Now that the whimpering is done, well mostly done, my suggestion would be the same as for my shotgun. Weaver base and Leupold 2.5X8 scope.

    Sigh, getting old aint for the faint hearted.

    I put the Bushnell Elite on my Dan Wesson 357 10" barrel. It IS a big scope. Looks ok on mine, but will probably overpower the model 41. Scope works fine though. Thread is on here some place. I'm to lazy to find it and make a link.
