Not unless

It could be turned down to .357 or expanded to .45 LC.

I don't even have a clue what it is worth.

;o)

Much wider segment of the market over there.

I'm confused. Do you have the bullets or loaded cartridges? If the latter advertise them for sale to anybody with a 41 Swiss rifle. They haven't made the round in 51 years and anybody with one of those rifles would be happy to make an offer just to get his hands on the brass. Last time I saw it being sold it was for a dollar a round. I pay more than double that just to get my hands on 25-20 ammo so I have brass to reload.

It might be hard to convert it to .357 or .45 Colt and get it to fire because .41 Swiss is rimfire.

Yes. I was kidding when I said that.

I should have used a smiley.
