Turtle,
You have had 0% of luck with your 41's. I do not know the difference between new and old. So I can not help. Just must have been a bad weld on yours. My Safety Lever is extremely tight on my 41, I am hoping that it loosens up a little over time. I have to use two thumbs to click it to the off position. Easier clicking it on.

I thought about getting it welded I can shoot it just don’t use safety and it was hard to flip on and off pin that goes into the seat area you can pull it off easy from the lever my other p c 41 is tight and works fine ! Maybe it never got welded

Mine is so tight that it's a pain to use. Mine is strictly a range gun and consequently I hardly ever use the safety. I think this is the first time I've heard of one breaking.

It is still stiff but front pin pulls out with your finger I just put it back in a leave it on until I find a new safety lever I have old style one in my parts but it has a hook at the back that goes in slide I can always grind that one down if I don’t find one

Brownells had one in stock I ordered it . But I think I’m going to take the other and see if they can weld it keep for spare called S&w they would not sell me safety lever ! Said if I send gun back the would fix it but wasn’t sure how long they would have it !

You can reduce the effort to apply and remove the safety if you polish the surfaces on the safety part's detents. My Model 41 is from the early 1990's and the safety on it was virtually unusable due to the heavy dents. I polished them and it is more usable but certainly not slick. I expect S&W wanted to be sure the safety stayed on or off for competition. Unfortunately model 41 shooters just tend to not use the hard to apply safety which is kind of a bad result.

I will polish the safety parts and L D is right 41 shooters often don’t use safety because they are stiff . Does anyone no any 41 gunsmiths in south eastern Ohio ?

You should be able to have that Tig welded. Take it to a welding shop and ask them if they can tig it.

I agree that the safety's pin could easily be TIG welded or silver soldered back onto the lever by a good weld shop for pennies. My welder does stuff like this for me often for free here in California. Polishing the detent surface should not require a gunsmith. You can do it yourself with grinding paste and a Dremel tool (buffing wheel).

I believe I would go with the silver solder also. Not only a gunsmith could do it but a refrigeration technician should be able to. They use silver solder for refrigeration tubing.
Just a thought.
