I don't know the tear down of that gun, but you may be making it harder than it needs to be. I'd just rack slide and clean the barrel and call it good. If you later have feeding or jamming issues clean it more thoroughly, but until then, call it good at that.

You do get what you pay for. I know that's a lot of dough for a .22LR pistol, but it really is worth it. Here is an article that albeit being old, provides some good info: http://www.gunauction.com/news/article/20120809-Smith-Wesson-Model-41-22-LR.cfm

Thanks Nix, looks like a great gun. I just can't stomach the $800-$1000 price tag on a rim fire. Maybe if I shot competitively, but I don't. Guess I'm back to square one.

Why not look at a SIG or GSG 1911-22? Decent barrel, easier to clean by far than a MK II, III or Buckmark.

I've got a 41 made in '79 or '80 and it's just a fantastic handgun, very accurate, easy to clean. I love it. It's one of my favorite 22's.

C3: Would only detail cleaning it once a year be acceptable?

Thanks for the input guys. I guess I'll stick to the Mk III.

The time matters less than the amount of rounds.
