Just purchased a 41 Mag FT 6 1/2" from my dealer here in KBIS. Made on the 44 Mag frame and even comes in the same red box (w/o 50th decal). Empty cartridge fired on 10/08/09. If the rain holds off this weekend plan to pop a few primers in it. If it shoots like the NMBH 41 Mag I purchased in 1976 it will be a keeper.

Be sure to send a PM of your sn. I'm kinda keeping track of all of these if I can. Right now there are only around 80, and if the distributor gets all they ordered, there might still only be 280 in existance.
Right now, the red box guns I know of are 87-80178, 87-80179 and
87-80191.
The first and 2nd batches shipped are all in the serial ranges of 87-79538 to 87-79547 and 87-79749 to 87-79814.
