Hi Homers, we'll see if we can help. Sorry for the method of acquisition.

Let's assume like most ss guns the metal finish is 99% and the gun works with no problems. Let's also assume it has the original SB checkered target grips in good shape. If the target stocks are missing, deduct $40 or $50 from the prices below.

In that case, it's likely worth $425 to $475 right now I would estimate. 4" guns tend to do about $50 better, and 2.5" ones $50 even better still or more. AYD would be about 1987 - guesstimate from memory.

Based on the way you presented it, it also sounds like you have the original box. If that is the case, add $25 to $50 to the estimates above for a range of $475 to $500.

These would be the prices you get to an informed buyer via a gun forum classified or perhaps GunBroker. Trade-in or consignment sale prices that you will realize will be 20 to 40% or more lower, usually.
