I recently inherited a .38 special ctg revolver from my grandfather. since i am already set on sd handguns i think i'm going to sell this one. serial number 471***. patented 2/6/06 and 12/29/14, 4 inch barrel (i think). i'd really appreciate it if someone could give me a price range on this weapon. thanks!

Never sell a gun you get from your Grandfather if you live long enough you will regret it.

he had an extensive collection of firearms. this one is certainly on the lower end as far as value (sentimental and monetary), i don't think it'll be missed

If it's on the low end of value why sell it? Do you really need the money?

With that type of attitude, I respectfully submit, that you don't deserve the gold plated ones either. If the old / ole gun was good enough for pawpaw it should be GREAT for you. I doubt you get many appraisels from the folks of THR. I certainly won't. Clean up the gun, oil it and be proud to have it occupy a place in the safe. Just my humble opinion.

Hi Chip,
Since this is your first posting, it appears to us that you are only interested in using us to make a buck off-of your grandfather.

Take some time, introduce yourself, get to know this forum and let us get to know you if you want assistance.

Sometimes Grandpaws, or paws, pass away leaving Gun Collections which were not personal Arms in the way of someone having owned one or two and carried them.

So, the sentimental value would not be the same.

Come on Chip. Think about it. This is the one he probably had more time with. Anyway, NEVER sell something that is handed down from your Grandfather. My most prized possessions are two cheap guns I got from my Grandfather. I will never part with them. He shot rabbits in his garden with one and prepared for unrest in the streets with the other. If these guns meant that much to him, I have to value them. Just do some research to find out more about the gun such as date of manufacture. Clean it correctly taking your time. Shoot it a few times. You will get to love it when you get to know it.

i'm glad everyone here has decided that they know the situation i'm in. but since everyone has decided to make this a a thread about what my personal life and what i do with my personal possessions i'll go ahead and explain it. the gun belonged to my step grandfather. though i enjoy shooting and do it often (mainly clays) i never shot a gun, or even saw a gun while i was around him for that matter. in fact i spent little time over there as a kid as i was able to spend little time with my father, let alone his wife's father. anyway, he gave the gun to my step mother who, not wanting it, gave it to me.

i am a graduate student with about 150 dollars to my name. i just moved into a new house and would like to be able to buy some furniture to sit on, maybe even a tv.

i have other guns but do not want to sell them as they do mean a lot to me (ie belonged to my father, paternal grandfather, or i bought myself). this gun just happened to fall in my lap. i guess i oversimplified my first post, hope this clears it up a bit.

Sounds like a Military & Police Model made between 1915 and 1942. If in decent shape will sell for $200-$300 depending on exact condition and who is looking to buy.

I haven't. People who own things get to decide what to do with them in my book. SaxonPig is probably right - a picture would help. The range could be $100 to $400 depending upon model, variation, and condition. If you can't post one you can pm or email one if you need to and I can post it for you and give an estimate.
