    Fair price for SAA 2nd gen ('68) nickel 5.5"?

    Hello all. I have been in the market for a 2nd gen on and off for some time. I have recently gotten serious about dropping the coin for a nice example. I am currently dealing with a gentleman on a nickel 5.5" with wood grips, circa 1968. We have finally settled on $2350, no box or paperwork (I was hoping to acquire a pistol w box/paperwork). Boxes/paperwork are available, for a premium, but still available. There is not a never fired claim but I estimate the condition at 95%+ Is $2350 a reasonable price for this gun.

    I welcome any and all feedback.
    Thanks,
    John

    For a 2nd gen. I'd say you did well. Besides, you wanted it so, it doesn't really matter.

    Nice gun. I have been following that one for sale, too. If it's the same gun I was looking at, you had to rotate the pictures the guy posted. Good going!

    Not a great buy - but a fair price. Don't waste your money on box and papers that weren't originally with the gun - you seldom get your added cost back.
