Advice for price on revolver, please
I would like to begin carrying a revolver this deer season. I have settled on either S&W 629, 6.5 barrel, or Ruger Redhawk, 7" barrel. Third choice is Taurus Raging Bull.
As I do my research, I am surprised at how high the price is on used guns in this category. This has begun to push me to buying a new gun. My local gun shop has the 629 for $820, and the Redhawk for $880. They have a 25 year old Redhawk (very nice condition) with 4X Leupold and wood grip for $700. I am tempted by this one, but I would have to add pachmyar grip, and reduce the scope to 2X or red dot sight, thus pushing the price up to near new.
I am asking for advice or opinion on the general rule of thumb you use for a used gun? 70% of cost for new one?, 80%? 90%? I realize many things drive the price of used guns, and won't get into that now.
I have followed other forum categories on this site, but first post to this one.
Thank you for any assistance.
