I like the 1911s but they're double what I'm willing to pay for one.

All their Pro Center stuff is pricey but it is good stuff usually.

$1500 for a .22 ?
There are others just as well made and just as accurate. maybe better, I've shot Ruger's and Browning's but not the S&W.

There isn't any "collector value" since it is a "reissue", not an original .
I have noticed, especially with the "Classic" line, that S&W MSRP is ridiculous, they might be worth those prices if they were custom hand made, but there isn't a production pistol in the world worth that kind of money especially not obsolete designs..

Now that I'm done ranting I will admit I have never seen a S&W in a store that was actually priced at their MSRP.
I like S&W, I just think some of their sales people should be horse whipped.

The Model 41 is a current production model. The non-Pro Center ones come in 5.5 and 7 inch models. The Pro Center has a top rail installed and, like all Model 41's it has:

Switch-Barrel Design Allows Both 5.5 and 7 Barrels on One Frame
Target Trigger Set at 2.75 to 3.25 lbs.
Adjustable Trigger Stop

I shoot in a .22 pistol league and there are several shooters using Model 41's. I'd love to have one.

Model 41s are worth the money.   I had one, wife took it, so I had to buy another.    its hard to find a pistol as good as the 41 for the price ( new, used is a diffrent story)   
I'd listen to TAB. I mean, he must know his stuff on this subject - his current avatar is obviously successful at stuffing extra ammo in a standard container.

You're right Tom.  When the movie Dirty Harry came out Model 29s had a premium of several hundred dollars more than MSRP ;D

I shot better with a short barrel High Standard Victor than i ever could with a S&W M 41 but that is just me.  The best group NRA Bullseye style I ever shot was with a 4" Colt Match Target!  Alas, all three are out of my range now.
