See one of these,in about 98%,regularly at last few area shows. Mitch is right on,they are a "drag" on the market,unless NIB for "safe queens"! Dealer who owns it,has come down from $1100,to $800-and ANY price drop for this tightwad,must really yank his short hairs!
Unless you are a serious handloader/shooter,who is able create loads from the old 38/44 standards,of 158 gr. at 1200fps to the mildest of wad cutters,for what would no doubt be a "tack driving experience" out of this precision piece,the .38 Special only configuration(and maybe the 8"bbl.) will turn you off-unless the price was really low,say $500!!
