Default Would you buy this?

Offered to me:

An original BHP (s/n: 8###).
Some pitting under grips.
Matching serial numbers.
Seller is wanting $850.00

My counter will be $850.00 for pistol and 150 rounds of ammo, depending on condition of pistol.

Well, any price guide BOOK tells you what a gun sold for THE YEAR BEFORE THE BOOK WAS PRINTED.

Usually what I will do is go over to Gunbroker, log in, search for CLOSED sales, put in the search terms, and look for the guns of that type that actually sold. And look at the pics to see how condition compares to one I am looking at.

Thanks!
I have to look at the actual condition.

As suggested, check Gunbroker, determine how much you will pay for an acceptable condition firearm and make your offer, final decision is yours. Is $850 reasonable for a nice HP? Depends on the firearm, when made, history etc. only you will be able to determine that. High powers sell for a lot more and a lot less than $850.

There's no way I'd pay that much for anything with pitting.
