Considering another Model 41...any thoughts?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello,
I recently sold one of my Ruger MKIIs via consignment. If I use the funds to buy another firearm the shop waives the consignment fee. I really donít need another gun, in fact Iím trying to reduce my collection, but this Model 41 caught my eye. It seems to be in very good condition, just in need of a decent cleaning. I just wanted to get some opinions on it. The price seems good but I have not been in the buying market for quite a while. I know issues can vary gun to gun but wondered how examples from this time seemed to be in general. The serial number puts it at a 1991/1992 production. It comes with the box and three magazines.





Iíve got a Model 41 currently that I bought new in 2009. I has a threaded Clark barrel and I use it as a suppressor host. Some ammo functions erratically in mine but CCI SV works 100%. Itís probably my favorite gun to shoot out of about 100.

Price is good and from the two photos it looks in good condition. Go for it, good investment.

Well it would be a quick 200.00 if you sold it the next day or make a sister to the other nice one you posted.

I'd snatch that 41 in a New York minute if I didn't already have 2!

Yeah, Iíll probably just get it. The credit from the Ruger sale is $325 so it will be a pretty reasonable amount of extra cash out of pocket. Iíve got a few more Rugers up for sale too so hopefully theyíll sell soon to cover the rest of the cost. I just wish ammo was readily available. Iím going to want to shoot it. Iím already going through withdrawal and donít want to shoot up my stock of rounds.

I just purchased a used but minty performance center 41 for $1000. I got 6 mags and a set of Hogue grips in the deal. At that price jump on it.

Thatís a good deal. Have you shot it? Does it run well?

I picked it up yesterday. After getting it home for a better look itís in really good shape. Itís been shot but no significant wear. The shop told me the seller was originally asking $1100 and had just dropped the price.

Comparing it to my 2009 Model 41, this one definitely has a more ďold schoolĒ feel: high polish bluing vs matte, wood grips vs laminate wood, roll marks vs laser etching. Iíll try to get some better photos later. Now I need to get out to shoot it...

The only down side is the older ones have a different slide design and are not covered under warranty! So parts can be had to find ! But I would have paid that for that one !👍

You got a great buy. When I sold mine, I got $1100 for it within 24 hrs. It sure is a beauty. Congrats!
