This one was advertised as an ex police revolver but didn't have any police dept. markings. It came with the target hammer, target trigger and good quality aftermarket checkered rubber grips with finger grooves. The bluing shows a little holster wear but I'd say is still 90%. I bought it about 20 years ago from a large dealer, back when police depts. were still replacing revolvers with semi autos. I paid an extra $10.00 for select quality. This raised the price to either $159.95 or $169.95, can't remember which, + freight.

I've wondered if it was actually an ex police revolver because of the hammer, trigger and lack of PD markings. It's a keeper but I'm curious as to what it would be worth today? I'm thinking I might have lucked into a pretty good deal for a change.

What they actually sell for on GB is the best way to gauge the price...While it is a fine piece, the gun as described is a $250 gun at most, IMO.

Saw a 19-4, P/R, TT,TH. At least 90% if not better go for $325, which I thought a little low. The times are tough, I suspect the lower end of what's been discussed.

350 is a good price around here.

400-425 is more common for one in really good shape

$250 is 'bout right in my area, of the southeast U.S.A.
