Does anyone know the value of a High Standard Double Nine .22 revolver that's nickel plated, and supposed to be in 95% condition? It's also supposed to have a 6" barrel according to the seller. I've not seen it yet, but I have a scope I've been trying to sell and put that I was open to trades. I got a message from a guy on a local forum asking if I'd be interested in trading for this. I'm hoping to get $230-240 for this scope, or something of equivalent value, so I wondered if this pistol was worth this, or if it was worth less? I see them on auction sites from $150 on up to $550, and am not sure of the differences, although most of them I see are blue, and I haven't seen any nickel ones that say they have a 6" barrel, which makes me wonder if he measured it correctly.

You don't give the year of manufacturer but $190 - $225 is the price range given in the current Blue Book for 95% condition.

ask him if it is an all steel model with both 22 and 22 WMR cylinders
if so, aside from what Blue Book says, it's worth owning for the trade, I own one in blue

the aluminum framed models worth less, I would not trade on that

nickle plated, I dunno, not real common, so unsure if nickle plated really is nickel plated

The Double Nine in .22LR was manufactured from 1958 to 1971 with an aluminum frame, then from 1971 to 1984 with a steel one. The later steel versions also were available as a combination gun with a .22Mag cylinder (1971 to 1973), or in .22Mag only (1971 to 1976). The earlier aluminum models in nickel had black plastic grips while the later steel framed models had walnut grips. The aluminum guns seem to bring a slightly lower price than the steel ones probably because of their frame material and the .22Mag option.
