Hey guys, found a similar 4" with aftermarket grips in about same shooter condition. I'm looking to pick up a shooter and curious what's good price on one like this. Thanks for the help.

JP,actual value $850.Gunbroker value $1200/1500.D*
$850 days are far and few between (unless you live in an area without internet) some are still available under $1000 but usually real beaters so yes you are going to pay between $1200 and $1500 for a decent one (lower end with aftermarket grips higher end with factory grips) and condition is going to be a big factor. If you can take some pics of the gun before you buy it post them on the Python forum and ask for opinions on what you should pay. you will get lots of help here

Looked at it again and only blue loss is around muzzle, no dings or scratches and the plate screws are a little buggered up. Aftermarket rubber hogues on it. The timing on it is perfect and locks up like a vault. I can get it for $1100 OTD...PROBABLY going to grab it for a shooter. Thx guys.

Just be careful buying one with buggered up screws, means someone that didn't know what they were doing got inside it, hopefully only to spray it out. At least take the grips off for a glance for rust
and add pics after you pick it up

Yep...I would have walked away if the timing had not been perfect and lock up was so tight. Will post pics if I pick it up. Thx.

Personally, I am ok with a little wear. Its just major scratches and dings I worry about. Sound like you got a good one Terry. You can put a set of orig grips on and have a good gun for a long time. Congrats
