S&W 41 Threaded ‘Bully Barrel’

image

Fans of the Smith & Wesson Model 41 rimfire pistol who also happen to be suppressor owners, now have the option to join the two worlds. Ray-Vin Enterprises has once again made their “Bully Barrel” available with 1/2″ x 28 threads. The barrels come in two lengths: 5.5″ and 6″ and both include integrated rails for mounting optics.

I have never had the pleasure of shooting a Model 41, but I am a firm believer in making most firearms suppressor ready. Critics may argue about the price, however, like any limited- run custom-machined gun parts, quality doesn’t come cheap. Besides, the gun itself isn’t cheap, coming in at an estimated MSRP of $1389.

I happen to like the look of the “in the white” finish, but owners will have the option to personalize their barrel as they please. I vote for a unique Cerakote color such as Electric Yellow or Safety Orange.

Further details and pricing below.

    My model 41 with the 7 5/8″ barrel was purchased in the early 70’s, and although not fired often now, is my most cherished hand gun. When I was in college I’d use a sandbag as a rest on top of the car and amaze my friends with consistent long distance shots. What a great addition this new barrel may be.

  • BattleshipGrey

    I kind of wish there was an option like this for my Beretta Neos. It’s probably one of only a few of my guns I’d suppress.

  • Aono

    When is S&W going to wise up and make thread their factory Performance Center model?

  • Pete – TFB Writer

    Ok, honest question for 41 owners: ‘is the juice worth the squeeze’? Is this a $1300 rimfire pistol? Would I be just as happy with a Volquartsen Scorpion?

    • thedonn007

      I would ask the same thing.

    • LG

      If you have to ask the question, then you could not appreciate the “beauty” of the S&W Model 41.

      • Pete – TFB Writer

        I’m being completely honest. Help me out here. Tell me why I should own one.

        • LG

          Simply shoot one. Volqartsen is very well made, but it is not a Model 41. To really appreciate the Model 41 shoot a 7 1/2″ model with the barrel weights from the late 50’s and early 60’s. A Hammerli free style is even better. Who was it that said ,” You can feel it when you drive!”

          • Pete – TFB Writer

            Ok. I get it. I need to find someone who will let me shoot theirs.

    • datimes

      The ATF form 4473/sales slip dated Aug. 11,1972 reveals a sale price of $141.00.

      • iksnilol

        Which is the equivalent of about 800 dollars today. So is it worth paying a 50% markup on it?

        • datimes

          I suspect the premium you note consists of things like many thousands of regulations, workman’s comp, product liability, etc., that were not in effect at the time of manufacture. It’s the gift of big government.

          • iksnilol

            Nah, it’s inflation. You do know what that is, right?

          • datimes

            Yep. It’s the difference between 141 and 800. Inflation $669.

          • iksnilol

            Do you know why inflation happens?

            Hint: it ain’t product liability, workman’s comp or “thousands of regulations”.

          • Sunshine_Shooter

            I believe datimes (and you, in your first comment) is saying that inflation accounts for ~$669 of the current $1300 price (though it still leaves $500 unaccounted for). Since you both seem to understand what inflation is, what is your question, exactly?

          • iksnilol

            He said that the premium in price (the slightly more than 50% increase in price) comes from “thousands of regulations, workman’s comp, product liability, etc. that weren’t in effect (when it was originally made” and that that was the gift og “big government”.

            So in short I kinda doubt how and why inflation happens.

          • Sunshine_Shooter

            I think we have different definitions of “inflation”

          • iksnilol

            Do you also have a different definition of wet or dry? Cause you can have different definitions for those things, doesn’t mean that they change to fit your vision.

          • Sunshine_Shooter

            Inflation: “a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.”

            The purchasing value of $141 today is $800. The rest of the price increase is due to things other than inflation, such as increased manufacturing costs, increased workers’ wages and benefits, increased overhead costs, taxes, fees, regulations, etc.

  • thedonn007

    Good thing there is a rail for an optic as there are no sights provided.

  • John

    “The .41 is a little more interesting. Especially since it was fitted for a silencer. You don’t run across many of those very often–not outside of military intelligence.”

  • Jay Abramson

    Pete you can shoot mine. I have a vintage 41 with a 5 1/2″ barrel. Shoots like a dream. Only catch? Gotta come to Florida.

    I’m not sure they’re worth the current 4 digit price tag though. The finish has been reduced to a satin blue which doesn’t hide the brush lines. Although not pristine, mine is the bright blue variety.

    Seriously, you’re welcome to run her through the paces, and Hell, you can even shoot a High Standard Victor for a head to head comparison.
