    Your Combat Magnum was built 1978 - '79. Pictures would help for a value.

    COME TAKE IT.

    Barrel length has a lot to do with value on those. The 2.5 inch is very popular and the 3 inch is very uncommon, so those 2 are generally worth a bit more than a 4 inch in equal condition

    The answer is that the value varies a great deal depending on exact version of the gun, where you are in the USA, the gun's condition, and current market for that model.

    The online auction sites and their completed sales are probably the best indication of value. You must adjust for condition, and where you are trying to sell it.

    Clearly, a forum like this can't give accurate estimates without knowing details. Gun shops have to make a profit, and they'll offer something different that a private buyer would. They'll also sell it at a markup for profit, establishing an approximate insurance value for replacing one.

    Welcome to the forum. Value is dependent on condition and features (Pinned Barrel, recessed cylinder, etc..) and yes, pics would help us answer your questions.

    Hopefully I have added a couple of pictures. Please advise if you need a particular picture to determine value.
    Thank You for all the input!

    Dealer's will 'give you' maybe $100. Then, put it in the gun case (untouched) for $500 to $700.....depending on condition. They say "I have to make a living....ya' know???" I don't like gun dealer's very much!!!!! 'Gun Crooks'.....would be more accurate!!!! Bob

    Probably a $600 gun around here. Add $50-$75 if you have the original box, tools & grips.
