My 41 .22 is starting to show some wear and I would like a competent Smith to look her over. I've looked at Ed Brown's site. He offers reliability and action work on the 41. Has anyone sent a 41 to this company? He also carries a line of Stock S&W barrels that he has modified. Anyone tried one of these barrels? I do need to have the gun blued again due to my usage over the past several years.

One of the barrels offered by Brown is designed specifically for a scope. Anyone had recommendations on a red dot scope for this .22?

Thanks,
Tim

You got me, thats what I get when I start surfing for something and hit several sights.
Any of you guys had your 41's worked on by someone you can recommend.

Mines getting a little age it. Still in pretty good shape but need a little bit of attention.

Like the thoughts of having the gun either reblued or hard hardchromed ( starting to lean toward hard chrome because its shot quite a bit), action job, spring replacements, and a reliability job. I am also considering a purchase of the Clark barrel setup for a scope.

If you check out the bullseye forums you will find a lot (majority) shoot the Ultra-dot scope. I just haven't got around to getting one for my Marvel 1911 .22 conversion unit yet. You might also concider a LER scope to check ammo accuracy et. too. :smile: Mike

Hi I just found your post since I'm new to the site If you haven't done anything yet I would suggest Lou Lombardy at Falcon Machining in AZ. He is considered the king of rim fire and most of his work is done for some of the best shotters in the US. He is quite reasonable but it will take some time. Your gun will shoot 1/2 or under at 50 yards.
Hope this helps
see his web page at falcon machining.com

Hey Tim; have you considered asking S&W to do the job for you? I don't remember the price, but as I recall it's pretty reasonable for a complete rebuild and blue. I don't know if they'd hard chrome it or not but it doesn't cost anything to ask. They have an 800 number, give' em a call.

Thanks Bob, had not giving S&W any thought. I have mounted a Clark barrel with a Ultra dot scope and also purchased a Clark barrel with Bomars. It shoots great but I still think someone need to go through the gun. I still have failures to extract and the original barrel needs some attention.

Model 41 smith

In the past, the bullseye list has recommended Lou Lombardi. His website is www.falconmachining.com.

Clarks Custom was recommended here and there. George Madore on the east coast was also recommended. I am not sure if he still working on pistols. He has some health problems.

If you're in California, I bet you could convince Bob Brown to work on it. He posts on this board and is a retired Navy gunsmith.
