I just spent the last two hours talking myself out of clicking buy it now. I emailed the seller about shipping costs but didnt get a response yet.


So i thought i would pass it along to the high roaders.

There's gotta be something wrong with it.
Or perhaps he didn't mean to put the buy-it-now on.

Hmmm. Last feedback was in 2006 ... and what's with the funky looking side plate on the bottom, upside down picture?

i dont think its funky...if you look its the same as the top pic just upside down. So i think he just posted the picture wrong.


i took the pic from that page and flipped it right ways, and its just how the light hits the gun when its upside down. Not sure though.

Some one should really ask whats up with the price cause someone is going to get a steal.

I just bought a new GP100 or I'd probably grab this one.

Yeah if I didn't have two 4" stainless ones myself..........

Wish my friend would answer his phone though. Oh well. I left him a message.

I paid less than that for mine about three years ago and it is still in much better condition.

What is the going rate on a used GP100 now - and in which part of the country?

rantingredneck

About 380-400 here for a LNIB stainless one.

Bought a used 4" stainless, with box and papers, had not been fired much IMO, for $395. That was at the gunshow in Montgomery, AL about a month ago.

Well, if you want to wait, there will be another one for that price. I paid $ 200for mine but for that amount of money I can still find plenty of Six series revolvers.

And to be honest, I prefer the Service Six over the GP100.

i got my 6" ss gp100 for $299 at a local gun store around here in box with the manual and everything, like new condition. damn thing shoots more accurately than my python.

I think I did ok at $350 for a very good condition 6" Stainless with extra grips and 3 speedloaders plus a holster. Unfortunately I had to add $50 in transfers and shipping on top of that. Not awful but not brag worthy like $300 out the door. I am curious as to what most people say they paid for a firearm. I usually round to the nearest $25 after tax and shipping if applicable. Of course you can subtract for any extras included such as holsters and ammo. Tax can add $50 to a decent handgun. D821, please let us know how she shows up.

QuikkotaTx,

I am usually accurate with the prices that I paid and since I buy mostly from individuals, I have no tax making it an uneven number.

I always try to get accessories along with a gun since accessories are usually just thrown into the deal without reflecting their value.

If I could find a stainless Six series revolver in my area I'd be all over. I passed one up at $260, then decided to go back the next morning for it and it was naturally GONE. I have been scouring the shops for a Six since then - found a blued one for $360. Kinda discouraged. I did find a 6" like new GP100 blued for $325, but not what I was interested in. Really wish I could find a Six series, though. Been hankering to add a Ruger to my collection and I just don't want to settle for an SP101.

My view on this is that was a great deal, but there is a rule that you don't post links to live auctions. It's a rule at other boards I visit, but not explicit here.

Should another member be bidding or following it because of searching, and you aren't willing to actually "man up" and bid, you've just destroyed his or her work. I think posting links to auctions you aren't willing to bid on yourself is just weak and churlish. Many sites ban the practice of posting links to live auctions, and I really wish this one would, also. It's just decent and honest.

I paid $330 in a face to face sale for the 8 3/8" M586 no dash above, and $378.86 OTD for the M17-2 also pictured.

http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b20/imakechips/smith%20and%20wesson/100_0835.jpg

$325 in a face to face sale for the M31-1 above

http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b20/imakechips/gun%20stuff/100_0808.jpg

$260 face to face for the 4" M66-5 pictured and around $360(I'd have to find the receipt for the exact price) to a dealer for the 2.5" M66-5 also pictured.

I don't round up or round down. I post either the exact dollar amount or very close if I can't remember the exact price.

Exactly. Either you believe in individual initiative, or you don't. Welcome to the America most of us defend, or the one lib/***** want to create. Most gun sites follow this rule, and I do whether I am at that site or this one. If you don't feel that that applies, well, that's on your conscience.

Again, it's not my policy to set. I do spend my time mostly on sites that follow such ethical rules - I only pop over here when bored. When the standards here are higher, I'll spend more time here. If your values are "we eat our young" - then, well, this just isn't the place I want to be!

I don't think there was anything wrong with the poster listing this auction because AT THE TIME HE POSTED IT, THERE HAD BEEN NO BIDS.

And as it turns out, only one person bid on it overall.

bestseller92

Also, if anyone had been "following" that auction, they didn't lose out because someone here outbid them, they lost out because they were too timid to "pull the trigger" on a really low "Buy Now" price.

Those sound like some pretty good deals machinisttx. Nice wheel guns!

Kamerer in response.

There was a buy it now price of 225. Which was the same as the opening bid price. So there wasnt going to be any bidding.

I posted it because the gun wasnt going to be around long with a buy it now at 225.

I decided to pass on it, but hoped i could help out a fellow high roader who might want one since everyone here has been so helpfull to me.

I however was not aware of such a rule and apologize if I have violated any forum rules.

i dont think anyone really had those thoughts described in mind until someone brought them up. I dint see a problem with indies post, actually i think it was really cool of him to post it how he did. His intentions where good so thats all that matters.

Nope, no rules violated. I was just bringing it up as a discussion point. Machinisttx got a little hot and nasty about it, but no one else did.

I think it's a good rule in general. Someone might be watching or planning on bidding. In this case, there was no harm at all, and someone here got a sweet deal - so all ended well. But in the future it might not be the same.

Again, I was implying no harsh judgement on Indie or anyone, just bringing up the subject as a consideration going forward.

OK the GP100 just came in today. The discoloration in the phtos was from the camera flash. This gun has been shot but not much other than a tiny bit of wear in the blue on the right side of the muzzle it looks new. Off to the range in the morning to see how it shoots.
