Thinking of putting my M-12 no dash flat latch, 4 screw, 4" barrel round butt up for sale has some wear on the alloy frame grips are original and number to the gun and in good shape anybody have a ballpark figure what it may be worth no box or paperwork. I know it is not in great shape but a good and accurate shooter.

Sweet gun! $300-$450.

Open the cylinder and give us a peek under the barrel. If it's cracked (and some are) it's worth what the parts will bring at auction.

Those don't look like original round butt grips. Was this originally a square-butt gun that had the rear ground off?

The Doc is out now. :cool:

While we're at it...

What about a 12-2/2"/nickle/square butt in 98% condition?

Those are the original round butt grips it has not been changed from square to round. The grips serial # matches the guns serial #

$400 or so. Nice looking piece. Carry wear I think on the grips, Doc. The early 12's had a slightly thicker frame than the later ones. Steel cylinder or AL? The aluminum cylinder ones were problematic...

Steel cylinder this is a shooter, alloy cylinder is unsafe to shoot but I think would be worth more to a collector.
