    Looks like you have a first year stainless Government Model.
    Production of the stainless steel Government Model began in 1984.
    Serial numbers started at SS01001 in 1984.
    1985 started at SS06183.

    Unless the gun is a complete wreck you got a real steal.
    According to my older Blue Book your gun in only 60% original finish condition would be $490.
    If it's in better condition you robbed whoever sold it to you.
