I have a Smith and Wesson Model 17 masterpiece,
and I was wondering what is the manufactured date on it..
it has a 6 inch barrel rear sight adjusted and front sight fixed, 6 shot cylinder Serial Number BHY0017
I'm sure 1 old 0311 has a better feel than I do. But, recent auctions have brought between $495 and $1025, depending on configuration and condition. The higher end is like new in box and 8 3/8" barrels. I'd say $500 is about right for yours. If you have the box, papers, tools and original stocks...maybe more.
Oh, and, welcome01 to the forum from the Wiregrass!
Welcome to the forum.
The 17-6 is a great shooter. You'll probably find it's a little front heavy, but with the extra weight it'll shoot like there's no tomorrow. you might feel a touch of recoil, but there'll be almost no muzzle flip, if any. the extra weight of the full underlug really has it's advantages out at the range. This 17-6 of yours is a 50 yd shooter for sure.
Hopefully, your planning on keeping it and looking for the value for reasons other than to sell it. Out here it's worth an easy $550-600
It's an very popular revolver at home and at a range.
