If all original that would be a pretty valuable gun. It is what is called a New Service Target. They are most common in .45 Colt like mine. .44 Specials aren't as common and would be an excellent caliber to have. Condition is of course everything but that .44 special if in good shootable condition is definitely well over $1000 gun if it is in it's original unaltered form. Mine is probably worth $1300-$1500. My Grandfather bought it new in 1928 and carried it for many years in the Maine woods.Twaits, what value would you put on the 1928? I passed up on one at a local show last weekend that had the same grips and checkered grip frame but 10% less bluing and if I remember in a .44 Special. The grips and back strap checkering are the 2 features that caught my attention but I had no idea of value so passed on it.
Just hope he's not reading this forum and altering his prices to suit!Thanks twaits. Another show this weekend. Hope the guy shows up again.
No problem. I hope you find that .44 Special again. That would be a really nice gun to have. Post pictures of it if you end up buying it.Thanks for the help Twaits.
