I just love yard sales

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I saw this S&W 34-1 a 2" cal 22 and bought it with the Brauer Bros H22 Leather Holster. It hasn't been shot much as there is very little scoring on the cylinder and very clean overall. Couldn't talk it down in price so paid the way below book price and when he gets time will look and see if the box and papers are buried in the house somewhere. It will compliment my other 4" and 83/8" Smiths.post-227-0-21560900-1406403870_thumb.jpg

Ok now this morning I get to another yard sale and see another Smith in a zippered case.
It turns out it is a nice Mdl 41 in 5.5" with extra magazine. When I asked I couldn't believe it. SOLD SOLD and I pay the man and smile all the way home. SN# A5727xx. Maybe early 80's?????? post-227-0-68689100-1406404899_thumb.jpg
A little later I go by the sale again and think I will stop in and ask if he has the box and papers. He says Not that he knows of, then says let me go look. In about 20 minutes he comes back and hands me the original box and papers for the 41. Again I'm all smiles.

Nice finds, you always seem to find some very nice deals on some fine firearms!!

According to a little research I've done on a couple of gun forums your Model 41 was manufactured, according to the info posted below, sometime around late 1978 to 1979, I guessing 1979, though it's recommended that you contact S&W to get the exact date.

Thank you will give a call for date,

Sold the 10-22 that I camo'd last week and this morning I picked up a Winchester 121 single shot for $60.00. It is all tore apart now for some serious cleaning took the stock to bare wood and then back to a walnut stain with a few coats of balistol to finish it up.and then should be good to go.
