    S&W 25-3 in presentation case asking price

    Thinking of using this on a trade, in excellent condition in wooden presentation case, need an idea what it is worth?



    45 Colt - 6 & 1/2 inch barrel

    If you want to shoot it I'd pass but as a collector piece $1000 to $1200 would be the norm around here.

    At a local auction, with nationwide exposure, mine went for $1035 last year. Hope this helps.

    Hank, is that your gun or are you looking to acquire it? It appears to be the 125th Anniversary Commemorative, Standard Edition, of which S&W made 9948 units. The SCSW, 4th Edition, says $900-$1000 ANIB.

    Hey Hank:

    I'm no expert on pricing and have proven that repeatedly. With that said, I think it's in the $1k ballpark range................I'm just guessin amigo.

    Are a prospective buyer or seller...............????

    Okay, my friends - Yes it is mine - I nave a 5-inch model 25-7 that I prefer, so the 25-3 has become a safe queen. . .Tomorrow I intend to go to a gun-show, I'm not looking for anything in particular - but the 25-3 could give me a bartering piece if I stumbled on something that does catch my eye.

    I used the forum to ask this question on worth because the members here are more in touch with real world prices. Auxtions can distort real world prices as the desire of a few can cause the bidding to go past the real world. . .In a gun-show I'll be dealing with the real world patrons and the usual slickers who over price their wares; I just want to be on firm ground on a trade - Thanks for your participation - Hank

    Just remember Hank, in the "real world" of gun show trading, most of the guys behind the tables think they should get guns at wholesale prices (or below) and sell what's on their tables at retail prices (or above). It always perplexed me too because unlike gun shops (stores) the sellers at gun shows only real associated overhead expense is the cost of the table.

    Have fun amigo and can't wait to see what you come home with........and the story too.

    Hank,
    I would say it's worth in the $1100 range out here, without much argument.
    If it was mine, I would sell it right here on the forum.
    Everybody here knows your reputation, and I can't imagine anybody fussing over your asking price.
    And you would have a pretty good idea that the person buying it would take good care of it.

    Just my $.02 worth for the day.
    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!
    .45 ACP, Because shooting twice is just plain silly!

    The wife has cancelled my plan - As she put it the guns are hers too and they have done better than our 401-K . . .Bro suggested a Sig -290c, for a CC piece, so, I'll lower my sights on any registered magnums laying on the tables -
