    2nd Version Nickel Cobra at LGS

    This came in to the LGS, in great condition. Considering an offer, just not a good time with taxes due....

    Box is missing the ends, but shop is only asking $1,500 which seems like a good deal...... at least compared to GB prices, it looks like a good deal

    I think the asking price is too high...for an example NIB...maybe. Maybe I'm just being cheap but you can find an unfired 3-5-7 for that kind of money and much more desirable. 2" Cobras of post 1972 vintage are not rare...maybe the nickel finish version is more uncommon but not $1500 uncommon. If it was a 3" or 4" barrel example...yes...it could be worth that.

    In the condition you describe...maybe a $1000 piece but that's about top of the market.

    Maybe, not sure, just see comparable year/nickel/condition sell from $1,900-2,100 on GB. Another local shop has a similar one for $1,924, but those may just be overpriced.

    Are those Gunbroker prices asking prices are actual sales? I just can't see that kind of money for a standard configuration post-'72 Cobra...nickel or otherwise. If it was electroless nickel that would be a far more rare gun.
