    My local gun show dealer has Unfired absolutely mint LNIB Colt Diamond back .38 special blue with 4" barrel. I know $850 is alot, but I 'might' can haggle $50-100 with cash. Should I buy this or should I look for a better deal?

    Look for a better deal.

    That's not the most common gun/chambering in the world, but I don't think it's an $850 combination!

    Buy a copy of Gunlist and start your shopping from there.

    I see them pretty regularly for $450 or so in nearly new condition. Pythons are going for about $850 in mint condition around here.

    If it's "unfired," it's not "like new in box." Every time I see the word "unfired," I think "reblued."

    Greeting's All-

    I think I'd pass on this deal!;) Sounds like the seller
    needs a "quick fix"?:D Let 'em make mo' money off
    some other person; cuz I believe you can find a lot
    better deal than that, if you really want a .38 SPL.
    Colt Diamondback!:) :rolleyes: :uhoh:
