Well if it's stolen, you better send it to me for safe keeping. I'll hide it out.

I just picked this up today. I know I got a great deal on it. Made in 1969 per the serial, finish is a bit worn, but what do you think the approximate value is?
Finish is gone, and you see that speck near the trigger gaurd? That's a grease burn, that gun is not safe to fire. I will take it off your hands for $50 as a wall hanger.

Im kidding. :D :p That is a beautiful gun. Worth about $800-$1000. Congratulations, that is one awesome gun.

A great firearm! I hope I'm not offending , but when you remove the side plate to clean it note that it is the side that the cylinder latch is on that comes off. Because of this, that side plate is frighteningly thin. After you have removed the grips and the screws, gently tap the grip on the opposite side with a hard rubber hammer (or plastic) holding the plate side down. Make sure your hand is under the side plate to catch it. DO NOT PRY! It may take a little while, but gently keep tapping - it will come off. At this point you will see I'm not crazy.
To replace the side plate, turn the gun so the side plate is up and again tap on the opposite side. Use mostly gravity and the slightest finger pressure. When the side plate drops into place, then put the screws in.
You have chosen a great firearm!
