Talking to 1 of my neighbors today and the subject of handguns came up. He is looking to trade a couple of guns
for a new semi auto in 9mm.
First is a S&W mod 31-1 ser.# is AEH5xxx. I had a little trouble finding it in The S&W book. If I read it right it is from 1984. Any idea on value for trade.
.
Thanks for your help

I didn’t think they produced the 31 that long, the 30 was discontinued in the mid 70s. It’s the round butt version of the 31. They’re kinda near little guns, I think high end I’d pay personally is around 350 if it was really nice and had a pinned barrel. If it was Mint in box maybe another hundred. But that’s me personally.

1984 is correct for AEH5xxx. Model 30 discontinued in 1976 but 31 made until 1991. I suppose $350 is a reasonable price if it's something you're interested in. Some people like them but personally I think .32's fill a non-existent niche.
