yeah, but no such formula works for S&Ws
Yeah, maybe you can do that with Ruger and certainly Taurus & Rossi. But when you start dealing with S&Ws, allot of that goes out the window. Pristine New-in-box (NIB) Pinned & Recessed (P&R) numbered models can go for twice what the new "Classic" line sells for. Even it it's not NIB and has been fired, this can be true if it's a rare model variation. The problem is, most folks don't know and so they just think "Why, that price is ridiculous".
Like 2 inch model 19s - very rare. Or 5 inch Model 1950 .44 Target - sky high$$
Even beat up 2 inch model 10s go for premium.
Ya just gotta know. I think that in general, Gunbroker prices are high for such guns because they get a nationwide audience of bidders. But for gun store finds, I think gunbroker prices minus 20% is a good starting point.
Big LSWC's rule
