    Took a few minutes today, and went out behind the barn with the OM Ruger 41 Mag.
    This is the second time I've shot it. I know, I'm a slacker. So many guns, so little time.

    25 feet offhand. load info on the target. 18 shot group, 3 1/2" across widest part.

    I think I'm gonna like this revolver.

    Have more fun with a 41. I dont have a 3 screw but do have a ruger or two. BTW, the 41 is what started me into reloading.

    If you're going to shoot a 41, you better either reload, or have very deep pockets.

    I think 41Mag ammo is more costly than 44Mag. Although, I've never had any store-boughten, so I may be incorrect.

    Mine's from 1969. A very early '69 model.

    Non-converted, and all original, as far as I can tell.

    I've yet to see one that anyone has ever sent in for the conversion. I think everyone pretty much said "Heck no" to that idea lol.
