    Thanks everyone for the welcome and your insights. I look forward to hearing from more of you. What a great group. I just hope someday I’ll be able to contribute instead of just asking questions. Cheers

    Don’t be shy about questions. Your questions help me learn.

    to the forums from the Wiregrass! I'd rate the condition as "Good" per the SCSW4th. It gives a valuation of $1000 for the run-of-the-mill 3rd. Yours has premium features from the factory which will boost that some...maybe 10%. So, I'd say $1000-1100.

    Very nice revolver! Enjoy it and give us a range report to let us know how it shoots.

    Looks pretty nice, but just enough finish wear/deterioration and with the chipped stocks I would rate at VG to Exc. In the SCSW4 that would relate to between 1400 and 1800. Now once in hand for a closer inspection and check out of action, it might improve that. It's rather hard to rate one from a few pictures.

    Get yourself the Blue Book of Gun Values. It has plenty of pictures to help you determine percentages of gun condition if that's what your looking for. It's hard to tell by your pics but I think it would rate NRA good. I saw a S&W like yours the other day on GB and the bid was around $830 with just hours to go. I didn't bid because I couldn't tell the condition of the chambers and bore. As a shooter I gots to know.

    I’ve been checking out ammunition and have found a wide variety, anywhere from 150 grain up to 240 grain. I think they were called cowboy loads. What would you recommend for target shooting and at what distance should I shoot? Where is a good place to order ammo? Can’t wait to see if it’s a good shooter. More accurately, can’t wait to see if I’m a good shooter.

    I shoot these in the older .44 specials.

    As to value for yours, I'd guesstimate at $1400-$1600 pretty easily.

    Nice shooting. Thank you for the ammo info. I had no idea I could just send for it online and have it delivered right to me. I’ll post again after I’ve been to the range. I sure would like more suggestions on ammunition from you all.
