    S&W model 41

    Reading the other thread on accuracy of a 22 rifle brought this to mind. I received a Smith and Wesson model 41 22 cal. Handgun when ex father in law passed away. He was quite a gunsmith so I imagine it's a nice gun. It appears to be a competition handgun with some sort of barrel weight attached and I am not a competition shooter. I will sell the gun and buy stuff for my Yamadog. I see what a new one sells for. Any idea on what such a piece is worth? What's that thingy attached to the barrel? How would I go about selling it?

    That's one of the best target pistols ever made. It should bring some good $$$.

    I have the same one in .22lr, compensator and all. Smith and wesson said they couldnt date the year any closer than the first or second year of production on mine. Yours is different in that it is a .22 short version. Potentially could be more valuable, gunbroker would probably be the way to sell it. I shoot bullseye with mine, just a phenomenal old gun. Congrats!

    did he say it's 22 short I can't get the pic larger did you read that on the side? I've owned many in my dealer days never saw a 22 short though and wouldn't want one if it's a short either or maybe I would come to think of it lol

    ok I saw the larger pic thats a beautiful long barrel with counterweights and it is a short which I've never seen before

    The 41's feel better than a young Pam Anderson's tushy in your hand lol

    That is a serious competition gun but sure is odd with the adjustable weight rail on a .22 Short that has very little recoil at all to begin with. A rather unnecessary addition and doubtful the gun came with the weights but were added after for some reason and usually found on the LR versions.
    Back in my competition days the 41 and the High Standard Supermatic Trophy were the guns of choice for .22 comp shooting. I never saw one chambered for the shorts but certainly a cool gun that will have some excellent value to the right buyer. Yours appears in nice condition and it should be a tack driver at 25 yards and the ammo is very much available in target match grade.

    Nice gift for sure but I would prefer to find a similar age Colt Woodsman.

    I would gladly unload a bunch of my TW parts stock to get that gun but have no idea how the laws between your state and my communist state of NY would work.

    It is a model 41-1. I'm going to contact S&W and see when it was made.
