Colt SAA 357
 
Would you pay more for a Colt SAA 357 4 3/4 in. brl., unfired, than you think it is worth, if you could, because you always wanted one? And there it was?? (Not too much more though.) :o

There are always things that we want enough to pay more than they are worth. I was at an auction at a RV dealer. Everything there sold for more than the sticker on the window.

If it is something you really want for yourself and are not planning to resell it, I say go for it. I don't mean double the value. But if you want it, you want it.

Depends, are you going to shoot it?

depends on what it's worth and how much they are asking for it over the value of it. some people overprice something because they think it worth more than it truly is, or they really don't want to sell it and if they do they want more for it. sometimes i overprice because of replacement cost, meaning i don't have to sell, but if someone wants it, they will have to pay my price.

Cane, once you buy that can I shoot it?

i had a chance back in the late 80's to buy a commemorative set of John Wayne's licensed pistol and rifle that was like the ones he used in a lot of his movies. i really regret not buying them. if i remember the set was about $1200. i wonder what they would be worth today?

Over Priced Colt
 
Yes if you want it bad enough, buy it! Most if not all Colts hold their value and over time actually become more valuable. Worth is only in the eyes of the beholder anyway..me, I don't want any guns that I cannot shoot, so if I bought the Colt, it would be used as intended, valued as the tool for what is was made for.

Just buy it. I have one I bought in 1977 and love to shoot it, although I only shoot .38 Special rounds in it. It is fun to shoot and once you master the sights, which are crude, the gun is very accurate. I paid $399.00 for it in 1977. I shudder to think what the gun would go for new. Mine is still pristine with 100% of the bluing and it is still gorgeous to look at.

Chuck I bought one the next year Colt SAA .357, I went to the range with a friend that had a Ruger Blackhawk and I wanted the real thing not a knockoff. I enjoy it now as much as ever although I'm feeding it .38s & .38+p. I have a question on the trigger break it not real crisp. I didn't notice it before. Last week I acquired a Python and in single action that's as crisp as they come. When you squeeze off a shot is there just the tiniest bit of play in the trigger. JB
