    I'd guess $375 to $450 . I bought 1 just like it a month or so ago for $399 but it didnt have box but also it didnt have gouge on the end of barrel.

    I'll agree with capstan on this, altough it may get close to $500.00 - but that gouge, altough fairly small does affect the value.

    I agree with the guys here. If it did not have the dent it might sell for $500 $600 with the two boxes, hang tag, and manual.
    You can probably get $400 it as is, but the market is soft right now.

    I own it's younger brother (RD37xx). I bought it about a month ago and paid $495. It has the plastic shell, instruction book, but no outer cover. I thought I got a fair deal on it after researching those models. The metal work on mine is completely clean, no nicks or gouges.

    It looks like the gun was dropped onto a concrete surface so you might want to be cautious. We used to see this kind of damage on service revolvers during my LEO days.

    I believe that place on the end could be smoothed out and touched up, of course you would still be able to tell it was there but would look alot better indeed. I would not pay a penny more than $400 for it. If you got the place cleaned up and looking good it might go 500 to 550 since it has the nice box. JMHO.
