You might be shocked to know if that holster is a dated WW2 original how much it's worth. Like $150ish in that shape.

Your 1944 Remington Rand .. there are several for sale on Gunbroker right now with bids over $1400. Yours could go as high as 2 grand, and that's the minimum I'd insure it for.

As with all WW2 collectibles, more documentation is better. get close ups of all the markings.

Your Smith & Wesson needs the rust looked after and I THINK that's a barrel that's been shortened. That front sight isn't 'stock' that I've ever seen. One of our SW experts will have to chime in. Cleaned up, I'd say $350

No "think" about that S&W; the barrel has been cut down so there is no front support for the ejector rod. It was a Victory Model (the lanyard loop has been removed and the hole plugged), but was heavily polished and reblued in addition to the barrel work. A nice Victory Model will bring around $600-700 or more; that gun, thanks to the improvements, is worth maybe $100.

Before you go further check out Training4lifeLLC's site and article: Bad Guns chopped K-200's.

These guns usually have two ill advised modifications. Removing the anchor for the ejector rod and most begain as .38-200 British Service Models reamed to accept the .38 Special.

I have poked around on their site a bit but cannot find that article. Can you provide a link?

Try Bad Guns: The chopped S&W Model K-200 in a websearch, it should pop up.

Got it. Nothing new if you have been in the game for a while, but authoritatively presented.
