Discussion in 'Handguns: Revolvers' started by runnn, Dec 30, 2012.
Even if revolvers fall out of favor. The few whom still buy them will face higher and higher prices as factories refocus their manufacturing capabilities to fill the other areas of demand (use it or lose it). There will be fewer and fewer revolvers available for us Wheel Gunners.
Settle in, guns are going to be more expensive for at least another year. I'm using it as a good time to focus even more on reloading (casting my own bullets), and my own small parts production using a buddy's mill (will buy my own 2013). I've got at least six revolvers (3 Model 19s of various make, 1 Model 15-4, 1 Ruger Blackhawk .44 mag 7.5", and 1 Redhawk .44 mag 7.5") collecting dust that I do not shoot. If there is an AWB they'll be worth even more possibly, if not oh well. We all knew, or should have known, this was coming down the pipe one way or the other.
if anything they are on "the rise". Shoot, give me a well taken care of "old
Smith" anyday - thank you very much~!
Worked out well...near mint!
Nor have Rugers for that matter. GPs & Security Six series are going up like mad!
really in trouble when black powder guns start going up!
If you're going to be in the world of shooting for the long haul you have to make connections and engage in a little back scratching. If all you want is a few newer guns then pay the sticker price at Cabelas or Wal-Mart and not worry about it.
I'm to fond of the older Colt and S&W revolvers to do that.
"I don't find them dropping at all. If anything, they're on the rise."
I said that because some have gone up, some have gone down.
Really depends on the gun. Good deals on blued stuff.
350 for a security six blued, in stainless 450-600
.38's that have newer models handling 357 are undervalued as well...
like my .38 SW 640 SS, should be 450 easy.. instead they are selling around 380.
new guns(in my area) are always hundreds more in store than online.
Seriously, if you like revolvers (I do!), this is a great time, as was last year and the year before. I didn't buy my few guns as speculation, but as shooters. Buy what you like!
Especially a S&W prelock.
And a P&R would be an awesome buy.
I really do love the thing, but it's gone up in value by leaps and bounds from when I picked it up, and mercenary thoughts keep slipping into my head.
When Clinton's AWB went into effect in '94, I paid for a new Ruger Vaquero 44 mag by selling three Glock 13 round mags and one foreign make 22 round mag for a Glock.
Th gun shops I go to have very few revolvers period. Funny how they've suddenly gotten popular.
Where? I would love to find some .38 special bulk.
