    Biggest difference in a 5.5in and a 7in barrel on a Model 41 S&W

    123
    I was doing some research on my next pistol purchase, and have concluded that I want a .22 pistol. I see that S&W has 3 or 4 different .22 guns. From the
    under 300 to over a grand. I can understand some of the differences. But what would be the barrel lengths differences? Would it make that much of a diff?
    I am kinda wanting to maybe someday do some recreational Competitive shooting. Thoughts?

    Well for one ...the longer the barrel the more acurrate the "weapon" can be.
    The shooter is another story........

    The longer barrel makes it a bit more muzzle heavy which helps some shooters and it gives you a more refined sight picture. We had a money shoot twice a year at the Gateway Dynamite Shoot. Bullseye, slowfire and I won it 11 times in a row one year with a 5.5 inch Ruger MarkII Target pistol with a 5.5 inch barrel so I guess it would be personal preference for barrel length.

    The longer barrel gives the shooter a longer sight radius, which tends to enhance accuracy.... another way of saying what scooter said... The S&W Model 41 has a reputation for being a very accurate gun, with either barrel.
