241 Speedmaster



Log in to see fewer ads
I got up yesterday morning to drive to North Dallas to pickup a scope; of course driving requires stops at pawn shops and gun stores.

I give you the Remington 241 Speedmaster.Now I’m not too embarrassed to say that I almost left it there because of the “busted” magazine follower.

The Remington stable is growing.

Thank you and enjoy,
John

Early Remington 241

I also just picked up my first 241 yesterday. Mine is an early one in 22 lr and barrel is date coded October of 1935 with S/N of 60XX and is pre-Speedmaster marking. It looks compete except that my follower is missing. Their is a plug on end of magazine spring. Not sure if spring is original but does extend all the way to cartridge loader. I am not sure if that is an attempt to have magazine hold more cartridges or if the follower is easily damaged from overzealous loading. Numrich shows a replacement follower assembly is available.

I have a late 1930s speed master . The trigger is outstanding, unbelievable really. I bore scoped the barrel and it looks like it was hand lapped . There is not a tool mark that I have found . I need to find another extractor for it . It has an old WWII style weaver 4x fixed scope on it with the German post style reticle . Mine could use a reblue, but I love the look of the history in the “patina”

I just know you’ll enjoy the heck out of that rifle ! Congratulations

works good

I took mine out today for a little exercise. Worked great even though the follower is missing. The only learning curve is to remember to not have your palm directly under the action port. You get handful of hot brass.
