I also like these pistols . I think the market has been tha same for years .
i have always watched listings . You did fine , but I wouldn’t touch a .45 for under 6 -
unless it was an SPECIAL POLICE.
They are just , and have been too available over the decades. If we are talking any other caliber, I see a minimum of eight hunj for a boxed model. I purchased an unboxed 40 and 10 for $6 and $7 probably five and seven years ago.Very happy with them both , the value was and will always be there.
include the blued officers in the eight minimum category. This is my favorite model.
They are boxed and the blue is very sweet. I paid $400 for the first , and a grand for the second .
Each were worth the grand , both NIB ...... till I did dun git em.
i actually lucked into finding this BA and RAF model last month .
Won it , and got burned............ got money back , couple months later.
shocked to have won , I almost called my FFL and told him to increase max to twelve hundred dollars .. I had originally said $868......... Definitely a twelve hundred package to me though.
Equally as rare as the .38 Super, the SPECIAL POLICE is the best model I’d say.
They have a little extra work and options.
There is one on GI now , for 15 or 16 hundred.
Price is MAYBE a little high , but it is tempting.
