moosedog, 2 1/2" DBs in blue are now bringing between $1400-1800 for 99-100% guns. They are about the third hardest one to find. Same gun in nickel (the only one we know of) recently sold for $4401. How about that?
If the one you are looking at is at least 95% or better, you had better snap it up before the guy finds out you stoled it. He must not be a dealer or he would probably know it is worth much more. I can tell you they will do nothing but go up and up and I am not the one driving the market..
