4\" Nickel Python Price

Just picked up a 4" nickel Python in about 90% shape. It's a 1970 E173xx. I know I got a good price @ $400. I am not a collector and just picked this gun up to turn it over for the $$$. My question is I'm heading to the Medina, Ohio show in a few weeks and wanted to know what kind of price I should expect. I think I know what it's worth but don't want to get "taken". I'd really like to keep it, but I picked it up with the goal of resale. Thanks

Re: 4\" Nickel Python Price

My uncle has informed me that the gun is more like 95%, how much will this affect the price?

I see nickel new in the box go for $1200. Almost perfect 99% Nickel pythons go for $900-$999. I agree with Diamondback68 you should get between $650-$700 for you 95% Nickel Python.

hey, didn`t i buy a car from you once.really a 300$ profit is about the limit of good taste on this forum.in my opinion, anything over doubleing your money should be kept to yourself lest jealousy appear.

He's probably lost sleep in the last several days. By exposing his theft, he'd feel less guilty. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

You got the revolver for $400 and call it 90%. Then your uncle calls it 95%. Some good pictures would give us a better idea on the pricing.

Re: 4\" Nickel Python Price

Photos seem to reveal a lot of handling marks (can be rubbed out with Flitz), buggered sideplate screw, dinged and over-oiled stocks, I would put it at 90% or so. My price guestimation stands.
JMHO.
