Hi guys,

Interested in if this revolver is worth the starting price? What's the going rate in your areas?

Thanks!

NEon,

I've made a deal with the gentleman, will keep you in mind once it gets here if I decide to change the grips.

probably a pretty good thing to have done. It's not like they made thousands of these things or anything. A few bucks over book is nothing to break a sweat over.

<<It's not like they made thousands of these things or anything. >>

Actually, they did, if I recall correctly. Seems to me I remember that they advertised 5000 were made of each version (blued M24 and SS M624).

5,000 made from 85-87 with ALWxxxx prefix. Price is at the outer edge and would have to have box, manual and tools IMO to justify it. Only 1,000 blued 24-3's were made and it came with a special black holster. Usual disclaimers apply.

I paid $350 for mine brand-new in 1986. It's a gem. I'd gladly pay that much or more for one now.

I prefer blued, but those are nice and around here I might go for it. A good .44 Spec is nice, and they aren't being made right now.
