    I know this is an Off Topic thread for Ts.com, but I thought you might like to take a look at a different type of eye candy…

    FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE..

    THE SMITH AND WESSON 50th Anniversary Edition of the famous Model 41
    ____________________________________________________________________________


    Their where only 500 of these beautiful fully engraved pistols produced in 2007. The entire lot of 500 pistols was completely sold out in less than a weeks time…

    I was lucky enough to be able to obtain one. You have to see this fantastic pistol, in person. The pictures do not do this gun justice. This one is number 71 of 500 made..

    THE PICTURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES:

    Very nice.

    I'm not a handgun shooter or collector but I like workmanship on anything.

    Any idea who did the engraving?

    Stu, thanks for sharing. I have had a Mod.41 (firs year production) for many years and enjoy shooting it. In my opinion, one of the best 22 autos ever made.

    Stunning. I love those Model 41 Smiths and the Model 52 Smith. Like little and big brother; 22 long rifle and 38 spl. wadcutter. Wonderful target guns. Reminds me, for those who live in New England: What do Smith and Wesson and the Indian Motorcycle Company have in common?

    I agree with you all the way on your thoughts regarding the S&W Model 41 & 52's.

    I think the S&W Model 52's where one of the best production target pistols that where ever mad. I shoot my 52's all the time, when I can shoot.

    Here are three model 52's from my collection..

    The Top Pistol is Model 52 (No Number).This one is extremley rare. It was the First Variation that was produced and there where less than 385 pistols produced. This one is in mint condition in the orginal box with all accessories including the wieghts.

    The Middle Pistol is Model 52-1. This one is 2nd variant and is Brand New, Unfired in the box.

    The Bottom Pistol is Model 52-2. This was the 3rd and last variant produced and is mint in the box with all accessories..

    These are really great shhooting pistols...

    Thanks,

    Stu Gabriel (MrGun)

    Beautiful gun. I own a model 41 .22 LR with a muzzle brake and a model 41 .22 Short with a muzzle brake. What's the value of these?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    You guys are going to really make the S&W people jealous. Train222,that is a very nice set of 52's. I have a 41 that is a special no sight model & 3 46's but none like that engraved sweetheart.

    I love my 5 1/2" M41 but it is kind of a tough love and as a result my baby has alot of blueing gone. Still shoots minute of a ground squirrel though.

    If I had a M52 it sure wouldn't be in mint or unfired condition.

    Nice guns Stu.

    wolfram ,

    When I was shooting, I did shoot two of the three 52's. I saw no need to shoot the one that is unfired, when I have two other shooters...

    Right now, they only thing I can still shoot are my Air Rifles..

    Thanks for the interest....
