I picked up a .44mag a couple weeks ago and I was torn between that caliber and the .357mag. They have $450 on it and since I have only done a little ammo business there, the price is probably firm. Gunbroker has a few going for a bit more. Would most of you consider this a good price?
Depends on what the number after the dash is on the inside of the frame under the crane. Like 66-1, 66-2, etc. The lower the number the higher the general value. If there is no dash number then that is even more valuable.
At $450, that's a really good price. I'd buy 10 of them at that price. Smith collectors love the 19/66 guns.
