    found a 3" 547 at a LGS gun is in real good shape just a hint of blue wear at muzzle has the target grips with a couple of small dents and a box that is in rough shape can't see that adding any value and a extra set of Bianchi lighting grips. They are asking 1K I offered $800.00 and at the moment they have turned down the offer. I know these are rare but $1000.00 to carry a 9mm revolver seems pricey. What are your thoughts on these guns are they worth that kind of money to you? Would you buy it for $800.00

    Considering I paid $700 for a 19-3 nickle snub, before tax, I can't say $800 is out of line for this one.

    As an investment I would consider it, as a carry gun I would not. I'm pretty much over my rimless revolver fetish though, until the next one comes by.

    They are collectors items. I see no advantage of it as a carry piece. Personally I would not pay 8 bills unless I needed it to complete my collection.

    $800 is a bit much for me seeing as how I bought my 547s some years back. For a collector though, $800 may be reasonable. Mention was made of target grips; some 3" 547s shipped with banana grips which are large and some were shipped with regular RB grips.

    I agree $800 does seem a bit pricey.

    My understanding is most of the 3" M547s came with the K frame round butt target grips or magnas. The K frame RB targets are not seen near as much as other K grips and can be pricey when found.
    The 4" guns came with PC magnas.
    Here is mine with the RB targets and PC magnas.

    I thought they were targets but everyone was calling them "banana's" but i guess it don't matter it has been sold they got close to there asking price according to a store employee.

    I believe it was $3525 but that was probably a case of 2 deep pocket guys in a bidding war. I would not expect too many to sale for that price. But if you know someone that wants one that bad send them my way.
