I was in the local gun shop a couple days ago and saw an old single shot .22 on the rack for $50. It is a Remington model 41 Targetmaster. I thought it might be a good one to fix up and teach my kids with when they are old enough. It looks to be in a little less than good condition, but when I clean the surface rust off and refinish the stock it should look pretty good, with just a few dings in the wood and metal. Mechanically it looks fine and the bore looks great, although the rifling looks odd to me, very wide lands or something.

Anyone know anything about this model; approximate age, value, or accuracy? I'm thinking I can't really go wrong.

I have an old targetmaster that holds it's own against any of the modern .22's made today. I paid $35 bucks for mine 10 years ago.

It will hold its own with a tricked-out 10/22.

Even better is that it was a gift.

A 41P was my first rifle, given to Me at ageof seven. Dad bought it when they first came out for around twenty dollars. He shot a mess of chucks, squirrles and a few grouse with it. I shot a mess of chucks, a half dozen fox and a numberof hedgehogs with it. All part of My job discription as a '50's New Hampshire farm kid. I still have and cherish it today. Enjoy! Essex

I am 52 years old. I have had this same gun since I was 8 years old. My Grandfather being the first owner. They were made from 1936 and 1939. Mine is in almost mint condition and shoots like a champ. A walnut stock and brown patina finsh on the barrel. Great gun.

Gun control is simply hitting what you are aiming at...::cool::
