WOW, I haven't seen anything within 6 or 7 hundred dollars of that price for a decent 2nd gen out here for several years.... To me anything over $1050 for a STANDARD 2nd Gen.SAA is to much.
+1 for wind swept tundra of Minnesota.Texas sounds like the place to be if you collect SAA's. Here in VA you can add about 50% to those prices.
Realizing Texas is a BIG state, you must be getting those SAA(s) in some part unbeknownst to most Colt folks I know. Those prices aren't seen around, within 200 mile radius, of me or my buddy 100 miles north. He's always on the move, traveling ya know, and still doubt he's run into pricing like that.Here in Texas "1st gen SAA" will cost $1359 to $1900 for a nice SA. 2nd gen's average price $1200 unless it is something really unusal. I hardly see anyone buying 2nd gen Colts either. I am NOT saying that you can find SAA's at that price all the time. BUT in the past year Jan. 2013 to Jan 2014 I bought42 1st gen SAA's and 16 Bisleys. Lowest price SAA was $350. Highest paid was $2000 for a 7 1/2 ,.41 cal, 1901 SAA, in EXE condition.
I think the reason for the BIG price difference is "CALIFORNIA". I am never able to buy out of state because My problem is I get spoiled to Texas Prices.
Maybe under a grand for .357 with wear. I'm just not seeing that many SAA's lately, except at Al's Gunshop. He always has some, but the man charges right to the nickel of market value. No steals there. He's uncanny when it comes to pricing. Especially for an older gent who doesn't even access the internet.+1 for wind swept tundra of Minnesota.
Rifled slug shoguns are pretty common up here. Unless they are for hog hunting not sure what they would need them for in Texas.Huh, I wonder if Minnesota has guns that are not so common in Texas?
Double that in Michigan.Texas sounds like the place to be if you collect SAA's. Here in VA you can add about 50% to those prices.
