    I had one a few years ago. I wouldn't give $89 for one, unless I knew I could sell it for a small profit.

    Have you wondered why it is in a pawn shop?

    If it was pawned, the original owner got $54.50 for it.
    If new, then remember who the normal shoppers of the pawn shop are.
    (and the pawn shop owner is still earning a good profit.)

    That's not a high risk deal, the newer model Cobras can be a decent shooter, but if it's more than like 5 years old, I would look closely. If it was built in the 80s. forget it. Hopefully you will able to get that kind of information.
    Just because it's in a pawn shop doesn't mean bad news, not long ago I saw a used Colt Python in a local pawn shop.
