Remington 241 Speedmaster 22 Short Made 1942 Not 24

The Remington 241 Speedmaster was a further refinement of the model 24 which was basically a licensed copy of the Belgium made Browning 22 Auto. It was given an improved take-down latch, was beefed up and lengthened and reconfigured to American tastes which resulted in a more robust and useful design as compared to its dainty European progenitor. In fact; Remington advertised it as BIGGER, HEAVIER, BETTER when they introduced it. Workmanship is truly superb because the post-war McNamara inspired management practices had not yet infected American industry (the first casualty of which was quality). It features a 24 barrel with adjustable sporting sights (original), 22 Short chambering, take-down, tube feed (15 rounds), cross bolt safety and very nicely figured walnut stocks with checkered steel butt plate. It retains about 95% of what appears to be original blue while the bore is mirror bright and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and the stocks are completely sound with thinly scattered light handling marks and about 95% of an ancient refinish (the wood is still mostly proud to the metal). An elegant, workman-like 22 Short autoloader from the beginning of WWII to you right now.
