Very nice three screw in pristine condition.A few years ago I watched a friend with a new model 4 5/8 barrel shoot a cow elk at about thirty yards. Heart and lunged her on a steep mountain side. She ran about a hundred yards straight down hill and died.
He used 210 grain Remington soft point factory ammo and the shot was about 30 yards and a heart and lung.
Over the years he has taken a number of black bear ,deer and a couple more elk with it.
The 41 magnum is still a very popular handgun here in north Idaho for hunting and loaded hot and heavy for protection in summer from bear

Hoss, if you find the trigger guard is knawing on your finger, try a set of Boone Trading co. grips. They're a little wider and keep the finger out of harm's way. They also offer the old style medallions. Enjoy!

Absolutely agree
I only have 5 sets for a 1911
The last old BH i had had a set of smooth ivory (imitation) - my all time favorite grip material!

Sure would look better with a steel grip frame, Hoss!
