    5" 625 Price check (updated w/pic)

    I have a line on a like new 5" 625 like new with a bunch of moon clips. I am meeting this guy at the range tomorrow. This guy really takes care of his stuff. I have bought a few of his guns in the past so I really trust him he is a good guy (also a LEO) He offered it to me for $350. It seems like a sweet deal me but cash is going to be a little tight with the Holidays and all but if this is the deal of the year I'm all over it.

    It came w/ 50 loaded moon clips. He said I could have the clips but I would have to take them as they were, loaded :evil: .

    ME HAPPY :D

    I second the motion! Buy it! You won't regret it. If you do, I will gladly give you your money back. My 625 is lonely, and would like a mate.

    Grab it! If you decide you don't want it, buy it anyway, and I'll give you $400 for it! That's a great price.

    Let me think... $350 for a 625 5" with a pile of moon clips. You had to ask if it's a good deal? :what: BUY IT!! Absolutely run and grab it! ;) Enjoy it, nice revolvers those S&W 625s.

    Where I live, you would be hard pressed to find a used one under $500.00

    That was the deal. Half the guys at the range are not happy with me. :neener: Everyone was talking about this deal but I called the guy about it and they didn't. I've always said it never hurts to ask, sometimes it pays off. ;)

    By far and away, that's the best deal I've heard of anyone getting in awhile.

    Enjoy it - they're great guns! :cool:

    Yep, you got a smoking deal! I paid just over $500.00 for my 625-2, and $550 for my -5.

    625"s are SWEET. I paid $340 for mine almost 10years ago.

    $350 is a great price, it's a buy it even if you don't really want it price.

    Around here:
    at $500 they will collect dust here.
    at $450 they will will sell quickly enough.
    at $400 they sell fast.

    This was tagged at $375, I shouldered my buddy out of the way so I could lay hands on it before anyone else did, and I offered $350.

    It's real funny to go from shooting a 625, back to a .38.

    I shoot a .38 most of the time, but had been shooting my 625's quite a lot recently. When I shot my 686 the other day, I was struck by how tiny it was. :D

    I've been shooting it for a few days, I'm really starting to like it. It is the first wheel gun that I own sorta (I bought a model 36 and let my dad use it and he has kept it for protection). I think if I can master the DA trigger it should really help my auto game.

    $350 for a 625 is a SMOKING deal.

    I paid $400 OTD for mine and felt I got a good deal.

    Bought a 625-5 Classic (the stocking dealer special) yesterday. I overpaid, but this one is a really remarkable revolver. It had been worked on by S&W and has the lightest DA stroke and the tightest lockup I've seen in a S&W. No pics yet and haven't been to the range, but I'm expecting this to be a very, very good shooter.

    What's overpaid? There's one here locally for $650 . .just trying to get an idea of what these go for.

    IIRC, the NIB value is around $525 and 98% is around $475. This is consistent with one of the posts above. The 625-5 might go for a little more (my seller thought so anyway) because it was a very limited run, around 1500 units. My point was that it was just another 625. This one was a really superior example, and I figured that the difference wouldn't be remembered very long! If it shoots as well as it promises, it'll be fine.

    :) Thanks. I thought he was pretty proud of it. I can't blame the dealers here in Illinois. I think they have a hard time making a go of it with all the restrictive laws, etc.

    Have a good one,
    Dave
