I am a member of a arms trading group (several hundered members). To be a member you have to pass a background check and have to wear your Id tag at shows if you want to buy sell or trade, we have gun shows twice a month in the state and draw a lot of people. We also put out a monthly magizine for member that has a few articles, some NRA info, issues that we should be concerned with and a members sell/trade or wanted item. This month I noticed a guy selling a NIB S&W 669, he said it's rare and manufactured for two years and he's asking $700. I have one not NIB but close to it, I bought it at one of the shows for about $300. True enough they were only manuactured for a short period in time but don't consider them rare or worth that $$. Not a lot of good info on the net that I could find (the price varries greatly). What do you guys know of this pistol?
