    Wondering where the ones built today stand? I've always heard these are about as good as it gets as far as accurate semi auto .22 goes. They're pricy for sure but if they're built as good today as they have been in the past the price might be justifiable. Though, it seems like nothing is built like it used to be.

    Anyone have a newer one?

    The new one's are great too. However, I still would rather buy an older used model.

    That's just how I roll though...

    I agree completely. I'd love to come across an old one unfired with orig box, etc...

    I believe the Model 41 is manufactured in Houlton and has been for a while. I have heard both the current ones and the older ones are very good but clearly more people suggest the older ones are better. I would actually prefer a Model 46.

    One thing that I have noticed is the older one's grips looked better than current production 41s

  7. I've owned both and currently own a recent manufacture. I cannot tell the difference except that the early ones had a loaded chamber indicator and the recent ones are drilled and tapped for a scope.

    Other than that, they're identical.

    Not exactly. It is a "cocked hammer" indicator.

    I have a 2010 model, it's been perfectly reliable, and freakishly accurate.

    In 1976 my girlfriend bought one for me. It's sitting in my
    safe NIB unfired with all the papers. Yes It's a safe queen.

    I have shot the 46 and 41 in competition since the early 60's.

    The new ones are as good and as accurate as the old ones. They are tapped and drilled for optics.

    Best 22 Bullseye gun for the buck.
