Look at gunbroker.com. Search item # 134262039. The one there looks a little nicer but it could be the pics. I have a Benelli with rifle sights and slug barrel I would consider trading. Let me know.

Most definately NOT a Model 37. That is a Model 38. Alloy frame Bodyguard. The 1955 date is probably accurate. If the pic is an accurate depiction of the condition, I would price it about $300-$350.


In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

Thanks. The picture's pretty much accurate except for under the cylinder where the dust looks like nicks in the finish.
