NEW TO ME REMINGTON 241



Log in to see fewer ads
I stopped by a local pawn shop and saw a Remington 241 right next to the Browning semi auto rifle. I looked it over and got my best price and bought it. It is my first 241. It is 22LR. it is in very nice condition. I am always wanting to know more about the guns I own. Anyone have any info on them?
Thanks, John

That's a nice looking 241. I have a 24 in .22 short which was the 241's predecessor. I wouldn't mind finding a 241 at a good price. The 24 was a John Browning design and just about the same as the Browning SA-22. Remington was licensed to produce it in the US and the Browning was originally produced in Belgium.

Remington produced the Model 241 beginning in 1935 and discontinued it in 1951. It was basically a slightly modified version of the Browning design which originated in 1913 (Remington received the American rights to make it- the M24, beginning in 1922). As stated, Remington"s Crawford Loomis modified the takedown mechanism and beefed up the receiver, stock, and barrel to make it a heavier, better balanced rifle than its predecessors.
There were about 108,000 M241s produced, and they were available in several grades, up to the elaborately engraved Premier model.
This was certainly one of the finest semi-auto .22s ever made. I think it rates right up with the original Brownings and the Winchester Model 63, and it is better balanced than these two.
If you look on the left rear of the barrel, you should find a two or three letter date code that will let you know when your rifle was made.
Congratulations on a fine specimen.

Thanks for the replys and info. Can this rifle shoot the 1240 fps high velocity ammo? Or do I need to find some 1080 fps ammo?

Yes, but I wouldn't use any hyper-velocity stuff like Stingers. CCI SV usually does quite well.

Remington strengthened several designs when HV ammo showed up. The 24 became the 241, the 12 became the 121, the 34 became the 341 for example.
Just one thought, don't wear long sleeves when shooting it. Hot brass is hot.

Yeah tha TD set up looks completely different. How was it different? I see the bottom eject and the stock slot which means it has a tube in its butt.

It was made in 1947 so no grooves and it is not D&T. It is pretty original. I wouldn't mind having a scope on it, but I don't want to D&T it.

According to the reference you cited, Gyde and Marcot, it is. The basic design of JMB was not changed at all.

Still, sweet looking gun, quick to hand , shoulder and eye. Going to have a lot of fun with that slender beauty.

Great score at the local gun store!

What is the "completely different principle" you are referring to?
