So, I'm looking to sell my 1990s Browning 425 and a guy offered a Smith & Wesson 681-1 and the price difference. This gun was made 1986 and was NOT sent back during the recall for the cylinder binding issue, although he has not had any problems with it so far (so he says).

What I'm wondering is, If I am asking $1,300 for my 425 with the leather case, spare triggers, and two factory chokes, and he offered this revolver with some hard pachmayr grips....what would a realistic price difference be if I went through with this deal?

Well, all I wanted to know was the difference in "value" between the two. He would be giving me the revolver and the cash difference.

My question was really aimed at getting a value estimate for the revolver. Am I wrong in guessing that it would be ~$350

The $350 for the gun is very fair. It's probably worth easily over $400
I don't know if you're following me exactly. If the revolver is easily worth over $400...how is $350 a good estimation of its value?

I would just like to know what an average price someone would pay for this revolver would be so that I can subtract that from what I want for my shotgun.

I've looked around for some people selling these revolvers...but someone I know told me they are really nice revolvers and said "The reason you aren't finding any is because those that have them want to keep them."

Thanks for the quick reply...I just wasn't sure I was understanding you 100%

I know my shotgun is maybe marked a little high, but it's in great condition minus some stock dings and it's lumped in with the chokes, triggers, and the leather case which is something like $200 on its own.

And yea, I don't sell to stores because they need to make a profit when they resell it...this means I (we) kinda get low-balled. However, I have sold a gun to a store that offerd a gun/trade value and cash.

Without the stamp from the factory recall a value of $400 is about it IMO--
Now if it was a 686 :)
That's ecactly what I was thinking...For my first handgun I was really aiming towards a 686 or Model 19...I know there are plenty of other Smith models like the 586 or the model 27...But I had never heard of the 681...

Well, the guy finally replied saying that he values it at $700 but will let it go for the low, low price of $600...He says that's what he paid for it. Pretty sure he's just setting up to haggle.
