Hi all,

I found a 6" 48-2 today, for $420 OTD. It may have its box and papers (gun is on Consignment) owner is looking for them. It looks to be in good condition, there is a little muzzle wear on both sides of the barrel, a bit of a turn line and the grips are a little ruff/scuffed. It does seem to lock up nice though, and is pinned and recessed. So what is the going rate for a revolver in this condition????:confused:

Thanks all,

maybe a little high but not much. M-48 in 22 mag is a lot of fun to shoot although a little on the expensive and noisy side.

The noise should not be a problem.......I shoot my cut down 5 1/2 30 carbine blackhawk :D

Although the .22LR S&Ws are in high demand and .22 mag ammo is much more expensive, my justification for purchasing at that price would be fivefold:

1) It's a classic S&W.
2) It's at a good price - $420 for a rimfire S&W in good shape is a good deal.
3) Seems like the .22 mag guns command a higher price than their .22 LR counterparts. I dunno, maybe S&W didn't produce as many.
4) I don't have a wheelgun in .22 mag.
5) It's a classic S&W.

So yes, if I saw that gun in the shop today for that price, it'd be mine. Maybe a little bit of haggling would come first, though. :)

True, they didn't. Check production numbers in your Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson. But remember those high $$$ come from collectors looking for perfect pieces. But there also seem to be a shooters market interest in the .22 Magnum. That I find interesting. I have a friend that has a little 4" Taurus, and he loves it.

Thanks all for the info, I tried to haggel a little but it was a consignment gun and I watched two other people come in asking about the gun after I had them set it in the safe for me. Just in time......


Thanks again,
Ron

you will like it. 22 magnums can be a little finicky about ammo. I had a M-48 made in 1959 and the only thing it shot well was Federal 50 grain hp's. I currently have a M-48 made in 1965 and it doesn't like the Federal's at all but does like the Winchester 40 grain hp's and the new Hornady 22 mag ammo
