    I found this gun at a local shop its a bit rougher than the one in the pic but not by much. Everything looks similar to me as far as details go. There asking 425 is that a good price? The actions seemed to be fairly smooth. Everything seemed fine except the cylinder release seemed to stick a bit. So what should I look for on it and any personal opinions on this gun. Thanks again

    What cartridge is it chambered for ?

    I have a stainless 2.75" barrel Sec Six in .357 mag. I bought it around 3 or 4 years ago for $ 300 it's been a great gun.

    Might be a hair high, but prices on those are going up. I bought a stainless 2 3/4" one off gunbroker about a year and a half ago for $325 and got a 4" blue one with the early frame that had a bit more holster wear last year for around $300.

    Champers a .357 would it be worth it to negotiate on price and how much should I counter offer.

    $425 seems a tad high, but then again with prices going up, the value will catch up to that level before long.

    I paid right around that number for mine a few months ago. I knew it was a bit high, but I wanted it badly enough to make it ok. I have no regrets, as it is an awesome shooter.

    Depends on how much "rougher" you mean. I got a stainless Speed-Six for $350, out the door, here in Ga. last year. But, it's a .38. I know the .357's go higher, so it's your call. If you want it, it's a good deal. The old Rugers seem to be catching on as far as value, so, maybe , yes. Go for it, before it's gone...

    Well I'm not quite sure should I hold out for something else or is this one of those "I should scoop it up" I'm looking for comparisons I guess I don't own any types of pistols so anything helps in decision making.

    That is high.

    If it was pristine ...maybe.

    Stainless, and in great condition...yes.

    But, these Six series Rugers aren't going to get cheapeer.

    I got my Sec Six 6 inch stainless, up here in Canada for $550 shipped two years ago. But any asking price is negotiable, IMO. Try 375 out the door.

    in a year or two people will be wishing for that price. I have 2 security sixes, and the cost of them has done nothing but go up over the last few years.

    Sixes here went for that 10 years ago, although usually in stainless. The short barrel would be dandy for carry. I think it's a reasonable deal as sixes go, but I personally wouldn't bother with it at that price. If it were stainless and a speed six, I'd go for it at that price, though, just because it'd be more desirable to me for carry.

    Regardless, I don't think it's a BAD deal if you want it.

    All of the Security Sixes I've seen have been chambered in .357 mag. So were the 9x19, 38spl and 38 S&W chambered in all the variants or just the Speed and or Police Six ?

    That's not totally outrageous.
    I spotted only two at the gun show yesterday.
    Security Six 4" blued = $475
    Speed Six 2.75" blued = $399

    The guy with the 4" Security Six was proud of everything on his table.

    The guy with the Speed Six offered to come down $50, but I had already grabbed a Service Six 2 weeks earlier at a different gun show. I saw a vision of my wife holding a frying pan asking if I wanted 1 lump or 2.:(

    I bought a stainless six barrel model S6 last year for $350 in near mint condition.
    $420 might be a good deal since there far and few between here in SoCal used:D?

    I got one too. Traded a Glock 26 for it. Don't regret it one bit. My Security Six will never be sold.

    Like some other members posted, these guns are becoming hard to find so I'd pick it up while you can. Most owners are holding on to them because they are good guns and their value is going up.

    Offer them $400, they will probably take it.

    Check out this link, it tells you what you should check for on a revolver before buying. http://thefiringline.com/Misc/library/Revolver-check.html

    Yep, since the asking price is $425, IMO, they will most likely take the $400. Personally, I'd ask it "out the door." Especially if it's a pawn shop... Good Luck.

    I'd go no higher than 350 if, as you say, it is a bit rough.
