Sevens I'm not trying to pick on you. Just my random comments on this gun only because the forum as a whole was asked an opinion. @ $800 likely there would be a good many prospective buyers for this gun. How ever I would not be one of them. But the value doesn't escape me. 1st Gen smokeless frame that has been IMO poorly refinished on a gun that was likely in bad shape when they started. Matching number trigger guard and back strap with the original hammer included.
Not that I would ever pay it for this gun...for the obvious reasons, 5.5", 38 Special, barrel change, likely a cylinder change. Not with standing this gun would likely sale for $1500 to $1800 easy enough.
