    You could just watch the prices and also check the completed auctions.

    I had a classic that was very nice pistol. Would digest the crappy bulk pack ammo without jamming unlike most autoloaders.

    Thanks Charlie , but I don't do auctions. Since you took the time to write, I should say that it's a 17-4 with just a little muzzle wear and a real thin cylinder line. The owner wants $700 firm which I would pay .... except I've owned 3 in the last 40 years and psychologically it seems a little high. I switched to Woodsmans and SW41's but I started to miss the revolvers( although I'd keep my autos...

    Charlie makes a good point. You don't have to DO auctions, just look at "the comps"; i.e., what similar guns are selling for.

    I would expect a revolver with a little muzzle wear & faint cylinder line to be close to 98%, & a gun like that would be worth $600-700. But, I wouldn't pay > $500 for one in 90% condition. Folks grade differently, especially when the difference is who is buying, & who is selling.

    Yes, older S&W .22 revolvers, especially the J-frame kit guns, have become hot items, & will bring high prices today.

    He has to have a auction account, to see the completed auctions. If he doesn't "do auctions"?

    Neal makes a great point about the % grading dfference between the buyer and seller. It's a good thing to think about until you see "the one" then it's all over. If you find one that you like you won't regret it.

    Not easy to find any Model 17 in good condition for less than $500. I bought a 17-2 in 95% but without original stocks on the auction side for $500 a couple months ago which was as good a price as I've seen for some time. As you've described I'd expect to pay in the $500 to $600 range. If the stocks are the finger groove S&W factory combats they're worth $100 to $150 or so but probably were not original to the 17-4. Can't go wrong with your combination of 41s, Woodsmans, and 17s. Might want to add a S&W 63 and a Colt ACE. . . .

    j3081,
    You should go back and give that old man another $200, and your still getting a deal.
    I have a pre number, 6", K 22 Masterpiece I bought more than 30 years ago at the Portland Expo Gun Show. Paid $350 for it in the box, made in 1952, I still think it was some of the best gun money I've ever spent.

    Here is the pre-pre K22. This is a 22-38 made in the summer of 1931. It is somewhere about the 230th one ever made, and it has the red box and some papers & tools. Gold gem in the front sight. Cost about a thousand. I think it is worth more.
