I have an OM .41 mag with a 6.5" barrel and a NM .41 mag with a 45/8" barrel. I am thinking about swapping barrels as the OM has such a great action but I want the shorter barrel. I have swapped on NM to NM just fine. But I wanted advice before I started messing with things. Thanks.

They are all the same thread.
However -
Once you have to deal with B/C gap, and adjusting shoulders to make the front sight vertical, I bet you would be money ahead to cut the long barrel down and have TWO guns you like :).
Also-
Some of the guys on this forum might come to your house and rough you up if you put a warning barrel on an OM.

Get Kuhnhausen's book. Within he explains the "shoulder" differences between OM and NM barrels.

JMHO,
