    A good friend is selling his revolver which he claims is quite rare. He's asking $250 and the gun is about 85%. It's a little loose, but he say's they made less than a thousand of them in the late 1930's.

    What say's THR?

    It was only made for about a year but its similar to the model 199. That price is cheap if it's not spitting lead. That was purpose built as a target revolver, albeit an affordable one by 1938 standards that was NOT 'cheap'. That's hand fitted pre-war gunsmithing you are talking about. A source at THR says they sold for $30 new and in 2007 could go $550-900.

    pic of one here: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=459265 in really great shape, and I'd say that is well worth the asking price.
