New to me 41P



Log in to see fewer ads
Found this well preserved model 41P at a LGS yesterday. Date code is hard to read, but appears to be circa 1936, can't make out the month. Must be an early model without "Targetmaster" stamp, and has a serial number of 34505 under the barrel. Does this serial number have any significance as far as date of manufacture?

The trigger is very nice too, just a hint of creep and pull weight under 3 lbs. No, I didn't get the other front sight inserts, just what was on the gun.

When I took it down for a good cleaning, it was kind of disappointing because whoever had this before me took such good care of it I didn't have the fun of making it look prettier than when I found it!

Sure would be nice if all the vintage rifles were in that condition--it's a beauty for sure.

Awesome find! I got one a few years ago from my LGS that was also mint! Great shooters, and it led me down a trail to acquire other Remington -P models of the same era. The 341-P is a must have to go with your newfound treasure!

Thanks all! Yep, already got the bug to find a 341-P now. Go figure!

Does the serial number of 34505 mean that many were produced up to that point I wonder?

I forgot to note that I paid $225 for it. Seems about the average from what I'm seeing online, but it sure is a lot of rifle for the money in my opinion.

Great looking rifle and a good price. I have a 341p and would like to find one like yours to go with it.

It wasn't a 41P that got me started, it was a 510P and now I have one of each, from 33P through 513SP--amd a 550-1P as well

Thatís funny, as Iíve travelled much the same path! The 41-p lead to the 341-p and then the 510Ėp. Most recently I found a 550-1p that cried out for restoration! I love these peep sight models!

Off to a gun show today. With lots of luck, maybe I will find another -P to show you guys. Still haven't shot mine, but having a mirror bore I'm sure it will be a good one.
